Things We Provide On Our Charters

Choice days go fast, so call to reserve your day/days as soon as possible. We will do our utmost best to accommodate your fishing day aboard Island Fever. We do work with a small group of Lake Erie captains who uphold the same values and work ethic as we do, so we are also able to book aboard another boat if there happens to be a conflict with schedules. This also allows us to accommodate larger groups who would like to fish the same day. 

Book Early

We offer top of the line rods, reels and fishing tackle for use while aboard our boat. Feel free to bring your own gear if you wish.  Partner with us to make your day of fishing on Lake Erie something special.
