Welcome to Freshwater Charters, a fishing service started by a guy who loves to fish and have fun.To visit Freshwater Charters on your trip to Put in Bay, use our Put in Bay day trip planning site .
My name is Capt. Cliff Fulton and I have the pleasure of being married to the owner of Freshwater Retreat and living year-round on PIB.
I started this business for the the guys who are staying at the retreat and would rather fish than talk about their feelings and shop in the store. You don't have to be a guest to book a charter though, just give me a call or email me for your reservation.
If you are looking for an opportunity to fish for Walleye, Perch or Bass around the Bass Islands, then you have found the right guy at the right price.
There are many ways to fish for Walleye here on the Great Lakes, and I leave it up to you and your group to decide. We offer trolling, casting and drifting as our means of landing the big ones.
Unfortunately, there is a cost, as I have to pay for the boat, gas and all that other stuff. I supply bait, poles, tackle. You supply Ohio fishing license. Reservations Required.
4 Hours Morning or Afternoon
1 Person 300
2 Person 325
3 Person 375
Hours of the fishing can be customized, but I like to get started at sunup and be home by lunch. Evening fishing is also open for discussion.
Beverages are available on board, and lunch can be customized based on your budget and taste.
Freshwater Charters Reviews
We have been booking a fishing charter with Captain Cliff for the past 4 years when we're in Put in Bay. It's always such a great time. We have an annual PIB trip with family and friends, and heading ... more »

Captain Cliff made our first ever fishing excursion fabulous! We were with our two grown daughters and none of us had ever been on a boat(other than the ferry) and only one of us had ever fished at all. We started out VERY nervous. Captain Cliff made us feel comfortable right away. He is able to encourage even the most timid(me)in our group to go for it. I was just going to watch and boy am i glad i learned to fish instead. He had us casting in no time and moved us around so we could catch the most fish. We each caught different fish; catfish, walleye , two different types of bass and drum. I even snagged the boat a couple times casting and Captain Cliff just rolled with it and got me back on track. He lets you pick whatever music you want while you fish and we had a great sunset in the background. He takes the fish and cleans and packages it as well. We are looking forward to a fish fry to share our experience with family who weren't with us. It was the highlight of our vacation and we cannot wait to come back and do it again next year. We hope this will become a family outing every year!
We had so much fun. Cliff is a great guy and we can’t wait to do it again. Only charter we will use.
