About US

We fish for Smallmouth Bass all around Lake Erie’s Western Basin Island’s and reefs. Rocky structures are key with smallmouth bass, which is why the near shore reef complex right off our marina. This makes for amazing smallmouth fishing! Most of the time Sunshine Charters makes the long run to Pelee Island for consistent action. After fishing Pelee Island you’ll see why this trip is worth it-the quantity and size of these Smallmouth Bass will amaze even the experienced angler! Our Smallmouth Bass catches currently average 14-17 inches, with many larger fish in the 18-20 inch range. Sunshine Charters will always burn the extra fuel to ensure a successful fishing trip. Just Look at What We Have Done!

We run charters 7 Days a Week!
