Lake Erie Walleye Charter
Lake Erie Perch Charter

Perch fishing techniques consist of anchoring the boat and using minnows on either spreaders or perch rigs and fishing on or near the bottom. A slight up and down jigging action can sometimes result in better catches.

Lake Erie's Yellow Perch limit is 30 per person east of the Huron River. Perch filets make for a hearty, tasty meal that is arguably the best tasting fish in the lake!
Dr. Bugs Charters will always go the extra mile to ensure a successful fishing trip.

All Charters include: rods and reels, bait, ice, lures and all other tackle.

A deposit of $100.00 will hold your date. If the trip is cancelled due to conditions you have the option of choosing a new date or a refund of your deposit. All charters are strictly your group, no add-ons. I make the final decision on cancellations.
