five-O fishing Charters, LLC specializes in chasing the walleye bite from the early spring to the late fall season. Our boat is trailered which gives us the flexibility of going to where the bite is hot. Depending on that situation, we may choose to keep the boat in a short term marina slip to maximize our bite success for the customers.
Early spring, we will typically be on Lake Erie for the pre-spawn action. This is the best time of the year to catch a one in a lifetime walleye. It is not uncommon to catch over a 10 pound female . Although catching these big fish are great, we also believe in releasing them to spawn. The fishing is spectacular and we typically have no problem catching a limit. The choice is ultimately up to you whether you wish to keep a trophy.
Late spring through fall, we will frequent Lake Erie and Saginaw Bay. On Lake Erie, we are close to the Ohio border which gives us the option of fishing from Michigan waters (Bolles Harbor/Sterling State Park) to Ohio waters (Lorain/Cleveland). Saginaw Bay offers a wide of variety of fish to be caught aside from some nice walleyes. Pike and perch are also caught as an added bonus. The bay is great because it offers several ports to launch from. We like to have this option so that we can minimalize boat drive time and get on the fish sooner. The cooler fall water temperatures are the greatest days to get some trophy fish.
We are happy to take the beginner and experienced fisherman out for a fishing trip. The trip will be as hands-on as you would like. You are welcome to help set lines, completely reel in the fish, and work the net. The decision is yours and we want you to have a safe and fun trip.
