Fish Whisperer Charters is based out of Port Burwell, ON and offers seasonal, half and full day trips from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving.
During this time, Lake Erie, known as the Pickerel capital of the world, becomes THE place to be for Pickerel enthusiasts. We will target them by “long lining” (trolling) the eastern basin of the lake.
Fishing is done aboard a spacious, 25' Parker SCXL 2520 large water, sport fishing vessel powered by two 150HP Yamaha outboard motors. On board, you will find a GPS, fish finder (to locate the schooling fish), structure scan, auto pilot, GPS, DSC Marine radio, life jackets, miscellaneous safety gear, first aid supplies and a cooler for your catch. You will be using quality fishing gear and try a variety of trolling techniques using downriggers, planer boards, dipsy divers, lead-core line, etc. The vessel also is equipped with a toilet (porta-potty), for our “fisherwomen”!!
Fish Whisperer Charters is an "interactive teaching" charter. We start off by showing/teaching you about the gear, electronics and various tackle, then hand the reins over to you!!
We welcome anglers of all ages and abilities on board:
•novices who want to learn the basics
•visitors to Ontario, so bring family, co-workers or your best angling buddies!!!
We focus on having smaller groups of up to 4 anglers on board, to allow for a comfortable fishing experience, with more time on the rods, and more fish in the cooler!
