Tangled Mess Charter

Capt. David Furlong Oak Harbor, OH Incorporated Licensed Insured

Come join Tangled Mess Charters and Captain David Furlong for an exciting fishing adventure on Lake Erie.

You’ll head out with US coast guard master licensed Captain David Furlong of Oak Harbor, Ohio. He’s been fishing Lake Erie for over 30 years and loves to show clients around the Walleye capital of the world! Captain David has only been chartering for a couple of years, but he’s been fishing all his life. Local to the area, he knows all the best spots on Lake Erie. If you’re after trophy Walleye, this is your guy. His love for nature and the outdoors are the number one reason he loves his job. There’s nothing quite like being on the water!

You and your guests will be fishing from a 31’ cabin cruiser powered by dual 250HP Yamaha engines. This vessel is ideal for up to 6 anglers and she has ample seating space, a full bathroom, as well as a fridge. All USCG approved safety gear is on board and the up to date electronics will help aid in your search for monster fish. The wireless trolling motor comes in handy for sneaking up on your prey and downriggers make trolling a breeze. There’s also a live well to keep your bait fresh and a cooler for your catch.

Captain David provides everything you need for a successful day on the water with Tangled Mess charters. This includes top of the line rods, reels, tackle, and lures as well as fresh bait. Tangled Mess Charters is a family-friendly charter and kids are more than welcome aboard. Whether you’re a novice or pro, Captain David will make sure you catch some fish!

Your search will be focused exclusively on the most elusive freshwater game fish of them all – Walleye but you’ll also be targeting Yellow Perch. You and your guests will be jigging and trolling in Lake Erie’s waters, which are known worldwide as some the best for hooking into trophy-sized fish. Feel free to bring along a cooler with any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy. Most importantly, don’t forget to pick up a fishing license online or from a local retailer before heading out.
