Over 38 Years Running Charters on Lake Erie

Why Book with Osprey Charters


  1. We are full-time, not part-time as many of the boats on Lake Erie.

  2. The 30' Island Hopper is roomy and comfortable with a 12 1/2 foot beam, and room for 4 people to fish on the stern.

  3. Many of my customers are repeats year after year!

  4. Cabin, hardtop, and private toilet on boat.  Six people can sit down under the hardtop when we're running and nobody gets wet.

  5. Captain Don Lowther is a full-time professional charter boat captain with over 30 years of service experience.

  6. Reasonable rates and exceptional service.

  7. We dock in downtown Port Clinton.  Bars, Jet Express, and many restaurants are within walking distance.

  8. Running out of Port Clinton gives me many options where to fish.  If I go to the west, I can go all the way to the Toledo shipping channel.  If I go to the north, I can go to the Canadian border or fish Canadian waters. If I go to the east, I can go east of Kelley's Island.  All these runs are possible running out of Port Clinton.

  9. With my fuel-efficient diesel-powered Island Hopper, I will not hesitate to making long runs to put you on fish. Other charter services will shy away from making these long trips when necessary.

  10. We run a 8-hour dock-to-dock charter
