Our 'Home Port'? Where the fish are!
It all depends where the fish are biting, where they’re heading, and the easiest way to get you on board!
Boat launch ramp location is another advantage that you’ll enjoy with Blue Dolphin Walleye Charters. Not looking forward to that long 1-3 hour drive across Ohio from Catawba to Conneaut?
Because Blue Dolphin runs tournament-equipped, trailered fishing boats, we can launch from multiple Lake Erie boat launch ramps both east and west of Cleveland – in addition to the downtown Cleveland ramps.
Depending on the time that you schedule your walleye charter, we could be launching from the closest port of harbor to your home location!

Blue Dolphin Walleye Fishing Videos
Blue Dolphin Charters was featured on Outdoors Ohio in 2009, an episode called “Trolling for Trophy Walleye”. Tournament angler Gary Zart of Ohio takes Joe and D’Arcy out on Lake Erie to show them the latest trolling techniques for trophy walleye.
Despite rough and rowdy weather early in the day, the boys catch plenty of walleye…with a BIG bonus. Joe’s quest for a 10-pound walleye is realized, hauling in the heaviest walleye of the day fishing near Kelleys Island.
