Winke Guide Service

Welcome to Winke Guide Service!

Captain Pat Winke is a life long resident of Port Clinton, Ohio, fishing the waters of Lake Erie as a child and turned his passion into a full time career. Fishing Lake Erie since 1963, Pat has been a professional guide since 1979. Years of experience gives Pat the knowledge and expertise to provide an exciting experience for both new comers and the veteran fisherman who want to fish Lake Erie. We are a true full time guide service that offers both sport fishing charters and Lake Erie Ice Fishing Adventures. With years of experience, we will work to provide you with the best Walleye, Perch and Smallmouth Bass charter fishing on Lake Erie. Simply put, we want you to CATCH FISH, HAVE FUN and share in your personal enjoyment on Lake Erie!

The seasonal movements and migration behavior of Walleye, along with weather and lake conditions presents a challenge to every angler. Knowing when and where to be, presenting the right technique for the season and the weather conditions are the keys to success. We follow the many schools of Walleye from the Michigan and Canadian borders as they migrate across the western and central basins of Lake Erie.

With our centrally located dock, we are within 2 miles of Lake Erie's shoals and reefs and 3 miles form the wind-sheltered Bass Islands.

Fishing Canadian Waters

If the "Bite" is in Canadian waters, we are just 8 miles from the Canada/US Border. When fishing Canadian waters, an Ontario fishing license is required. See Canadian License Link on our Fishing Licenses page. Note: You do not need a passport to fish Canadian waters.


If you are looking for a professional charter and guide service, then look no further!
