Boat and Gear
The Lake Erie charter boat the “Rampageous” is a well built Tiara 33′ Open with a 12′ beam. She offers plenty of fishing room and can easily handle a full crew compliment of 6 anglers and crew and is the Cadilac of fishing boats.

Because she is a swift running boat she offers a very fast ride to and from the fishing grounds which means more time fishing and less time traveling.

The Lake Erie sportfishing boat the Rampageous has a nice salon or cabin area with a large “L” shaped couch for sitting or resting comfortably. If you need to get out of the sun for a few moments or want to sneek a quick nap between landing fish then you will appreciate the “like-home” salon. Inside you will find a complete kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, stovetop, and microwave oven. We have two heads onboard both with showers.
Items you should bring on your Lake Erie fishing trip.
Bring a cooler for food and drinks. Ask your Ohio charter boat Captain how large of a cooler you will need to carry your fish home in. Ask what you can keep and even where you can have your fish cleaned.
A sports bag is a good idea to bring for carrying your rain gear, hat, glasses etc and other personal items that you need on a saltwater charter fishing trip.
Bring all your food and drinks. If you want to bring beer you should clear it with the Lake Erie charter boat Captain first. Alcoholic beverages are ALLOWED. Beer Only, No hard Liquor
Bring sun glasses. Preferably polarized fishing glasses to lessen the sun’s glare that reflects up off the water. Lake Erie fishing means you must take measures to combat the suns rays.
Bring a camera to take snapshots of those big fish you catch or bring a video camera and catch all the action that a Lake Erie fishing trip offers.
If you get sea sick or aren’t sure if you get sea sick then it is a very wise idea to take your Dramamine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named “RALPH”.
The Lake Erie fishing region can get very hot during the summer. Make sure you bring sunvareen, especially if you easily burn. If you are burnt up you can’t enjoy your Lake Erie charter fishing trip.
You probably already paid for the trip but you should make sure you have some cash in pocket so you can tip the First Mate. Being Mate on a charter boat is not easy work and these guys deserve every dime they get.
