RATES & PACKAGES
Loaded Rod Charters fishes for Walleye from first ice off in the spring in Michigan waters jigging in the Detroit River, and after the spawn, he follows their migration East throughout the season as far as Cleveland Ohio as late as December.
Through the walleye’s easterly migration, Captian Jason targets their favorite feeding areas such as reef complexes, bays, the Erie Island's area, sand bars, and shipwrecks.
Along with this migration, Captain Jason utilizes over a dozen Launch ramps so that we spend more time with our lines in the water fishing and less time traveling across the water to the fishing area.
Over the past 21 years of fishing Walleye on Lake Erie, Captain Jason has become very successful at finding the Walleye and putting them in the boat.
