Fishing Charters

Covid-19 Notice: Fishing Charters are operating, but with limited numbers on their boats due to social distancing. 

‚ÄčThere are many fishing charters in Chatham-Kent waiting to take you out for the fishing experience of a lifetime. What is a fishing charter? Simply put, it's an excursion service offered by boat owners and professional anglers that brings guests out onto the waters around Chatham-Kent. Many offer full and half day trips, based on what your preference is. Fishing charters are great excursions for team building, corporate gatherings, or family gatherings.

Choosing a charter

With so many fishing charter options, how do you choose what's right for you? Here are a few questions you may want to consider before booking: 

  • The size of the boat, whether it's a heated cabin, of if there's a washroom on board
  • What's included in the excursion and what is not
  • What type of fish can you catch, when, and on what body of water
  • What are you required to have (i.e. valid Canadian fishing license)
  • Type of fish available, what happens once they are caught, catch limits 
  • Number of people and age limits 
  • Payment and deposit
