Midtown Fishing Charters

Capt. Daniel McDonnell Cleveland, OH Incorporated Licensed Insured

Come join Midtown Fishing Charters and experience one of the best fishing charters in Cleveland, Ohio! Lake Erie is home to many wonderful species and our mission is to see you having great success reeling in these species on all your trips with us.  

Captain Daniel McDonnell will be your guide as you experience Lake Erie fishing at its finest. Capt. Danny has been fishing for 25 years. He grew up fishing Lake Erie for Walleye, Perch, and Steelhead, as well as farm ponds. Then while continuing to fish our Great Lake he began fly fishing the Lake Erie tributaries and targeting other species like Smallmouth Bass, Pike, and Muskie. Capt. Danny can’t wait to introduce you to the hottest fishing grounds around – helping you have fun while you reel in your dream catch is the best part of his job!

Your Lake Erie fishing trip with Capt. Danny begins in Cleveland, and you can expect to search the Lake Erie fishing grounds near Lakewood, Lorain, Avon Lake, Euclid, Amherst, Willoughby, Mentor, and many other locations around North Ohio in Lake Erie.

Cleveland fishing charters with us take place on Capt. Danny’s 21ft Parker Pilothouse. This vessel is equipped with a 150 HP Yamaha outboard. The cabin is fitted with a Lowrance HDS 7 sonar and GPS system, a VHF ship to shore radio (as well as a handheld VHF), a toilet, and the cabin is fully enclosed allowing passengers to get relief from the elements if need be. Each year this boat is inspected by the United States Coast Guard to ensure it is equipped with all the proper safety equipment. For fishing, we have tons of Erie Dearies, crankbaits, spoons, jigs, spinners and perch spreaders as well as rods, divers, coolers and live bait.

We offer 4 and 8-hour outdoor fishing trips that include rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. We will employ and give you knowledge about the different techniques used to catch each species including jigging, spinning, drift fishing, trolling, and bottom fishing.

We love to target the popular Lake Erie trio of Walleye, Steelhead, and Yellow Perch. There will be no shortage of these amazing species and we intend to put you right where they are biting on all your fishing trips with us.
