Mike's Walleye Rigs & Charters
Mike's Walleye Rigs & Charters is a full service walleye charter. Captain Mike Lamberson and wife Julie are gifted in hospitality. This team has many years of experience fishing Lake Erie and are all about making memories. Charters are done out of a 2021 Hewescraft 250 Alaskan. This boat is very roomy and stable offering a comfortable trip along with having protection from the elements. Mike meticulously maintains his top of the line boat and fishing gear. The boat is equipped with the latest in electronics and technology. Mike's Walleye Rigs & Charters is fully licensed, insured with the most up to date safety equipment.
Our home port is Walnut Creek Access, Fairview Pa. However, we do have the luxury of being able to trailer boat to the fish if needed.
Charters include - all the needed fishing gear and tackle; bait; safety gear including personal floatation devices, PFD.
Charters don't -include fishing license. In Pennsylvania waters you will need a current Pennsylvania Fishing License along with Lake Erie Permit. If you would like to keep any steel head or trout species caught you will also need a Trout Permit.
You can secure your date and time slot below with $100 deposit. Charters must be paid in full before departing the day of the trip. See cancellation policy.
