Walleye Fishing in Lake Erie

Western Basin, Ohio Waters

We fish for trophy walleye in the months of April-June when the fish are concentrated around the reef complexes west of Port Clinton.

Jigging and Trolling methods are used based on customer preference and both techniques can be used on the same charter if time and 

lake conditions permit.  Jigging typically yields more of the “eater” size Walleye in the mix whereas trolling typically provides the best chance at a trophy.  


  • Valid fishing license is required before boarding – no license required for children under 16

A $100.00 NON-Refundable deposit is required to secure a date. A written confirmation will be sent upon receipt of your deposit. Please make checks payable to “Rig and Roll Charters”.  If you need to cancel the date 30 or more days before the trip, we will work with you to find another date. If that is not possible, we will refund your full deposit. If for any reason a trip needs to be canceled within 30 days, your deposit will be put towards a future trip or it will be forfeited. A full refund or re-booking will be honored if the charter is canceled by the captain due to weather, or mechanical problems.

We will make every effort to let you know in advance if we will be unable to fish on your day due to bad weather conditions, but please consider that weather forecasts are not always accurate.  Your safety and comfort is our top priority and the final decision is up to the Captain whether we fish, cancel, or re-book.  Payment for full trip is required before we leave the dock. We accept cash or checks, a 3% surcharge is added for credit cards.
