Blue Dolphin Lake Erie Walleye Charters - 216-849-4954

Hello everyone. Welcome back. Lake Erie is alive and well. From the islands to Ashtabula fishing is as good as it gets. No matter what port you leave from. Pick your program that you like to run. Most fish are staying within 5 miles of the shoreline so no long runs are needed. Blue Dolphin has PRIME DATES available NOW!

Hello fellow fisherman. Fishing remains the same. Incredible.
From east of Kellys to Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Charters - 216-849-4954Conneaut it’s World class fishing. Fish have moved a
mile or two north of where we have been fishing. Run the same programs.
Just run them about 5 ft deeper in the water column. Bump your speed up to
2.4 to 2.8 and hold on. Till next time. Good luck and good catching.

?Run bandits 40' to 100' back. Jet 40 with Michigan stinger spoons 25' to 60' back. Dipseys 30', 40' and 50' back on settings 3,2 and 1. Worm harnesses 2-ounce and 3-ounce 60' back at about 1.5.

What Blue Dolphin Customers Say...

Best gentlemen to fish with. We had some not so fun weather and Gary & Nicholas put us on fish.... can’t wait for a walleye perch combo this fall! I'd recommend anyone looking for great guys with great equipment to fish with to book through Blue Dolphin Walleye Charters.

Our 'Home Port'? Where the fish are!

  • Lake Erie Walleye Fishing - Blue Dolphin Charters

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.
