Walleye fishing seriously has never been better.



Steelhead fishing is absolute fire this year.



Perch fishing continues to be tuff in the central basin and our limits remain at 10 fish per day.

Why choose Dog Pound Charters?

The Vessel

All of our trips are run on our custom Hewescraft Alaskan 25, ensuring maximum comfort and ample accommodations. Sporting twin 200’s with a 20 hp kicker, we follow the fish with ease. A fully enclosed heated cabin ensures a comfortable fishing experience all season long. With a private head located off of the fishing deck, you can relieve yourself privately and comfortably, then get right back into action, without missing a bite. Browns fans will appreciate the beauty in the details, aboard the Maybe Next Year.

The Catch of a Lifetime

Dog Pound Charters strives to provide a next level fishing experience for anglers of all ages and skill levels, on the waters of Lake Erie. You will be hooked after an unforgettable day of top notch sport fishing. We troll for 6 hours or until our guests meet their limit, whichever comes first. We strive to provide you with the opportunity for the catch of a lifetime, which will remain safely in our live wells, until we return to shore.

Unrivaled Service 

Our hearts are in The Land. Although we primarily depart from Cleveland, during certain times of the year, it becomes necessary to follow the fish east or west. Our captain will decide on the best departure location based on weather and fishing conditions. You will be contacted the night prior to your trip to confirm location and departure time. If the weather is uncooperative and we are unable to depart, a refund will be issued or your trip rescheduled. Our captain and first mate are dedicated to providing you with a fishing experience that you will remember for years to come.

Kid Friendly

The team at DPC strongly believes in introducing kids to the world of fishing. Not only do we welcome young anglers aboard, but we encourage you to make this experience a family affair. Please feel free to request special accommodations and we will do our best to meet your needs. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide your family with lifelong memories!
