Possibly taking a charter with family our of port Clinton in April or may. We prefer to jig fish if possible. We will be assembling from around the country. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Sorry
Just having a little fun.

Give Capt Juls a call for some honest charter recommendations.
She charters out of a Ranger for small group but knows most of the larger boat captains, good and.... bad. :winker

There's no secrets out there, Mar/Apr is some of the best jig fishing in the world on the reefs in Western Basin(from Island complex to the West end right up to Monroe, MI). Easy pickens on the massive reef complex just outside of Wild Wings Marina or any of the other areas to launch right in that general area...can't miss it on a map. Trolling large crankbaits is fantastic same time of year same area all way to Kelly's Island, typically need to go a bit deeper 25-30' for troll bite bite I've also trolled well inside the reefs in less than '14 and had a blast on just a bit smaller crankbaits. Check out Ohiogamefishing.com, you will figure out crank selection in a hurry by reading a few posts. Late Mar thru mid April weather can change in a snap, starting around 3rd wk of April, seems weather gets a bit more stable and temps are starting to warm. You can fish with many size boats, just be wise to the weather the day you plan on heading out. Also, in Mar/April, water can get stirred up due to all the inconsistent weather patterns so make sure you check water clarity(google great lakes satelite imagery or at least check winds several days before. North and East winds over 20 several days before can really make it a mud pit which will last a few days, lake seems to clear up quicker as you get into later April.

I’ve been thinking about taking that trip too. Lots of folk seem to be using a Wyandotte worm, which seems to be unique to that area.
