Captain John/Times Two


Captain John

Although Lake Erie is home, Captain John is an avid angler that finds time to make trips to places like Northern Ontario for northern pike fishing, Lake Ontario for salmon fishing, South Carolina for red drum and Virginia for striped bass, to name a few!

Captain John is proud to be on the Pro-staff/ Captain's programs of:

  • Bay Rat Lures
  • Gamma Flourocarbon Line
  • Dreamweaver Lures
  • Okuma Rods and Reels

"Thank you for your interest in Times Two Charters.   We promise to give you professional service, have the boat clean, and rods, reels and tackle ready to go when you arrive at the dock.

We are not perfect, and we don't expect you to be either. Occasionally fish will be lost on the way to the boat, and we won't degrade your abilities if that happens.  We still learn every day we are on the lake too!

While we can't guarantee that every day is spectacular, we can guarantee that you will not find a captain or crew that works harder for you! Our plan is simple - Get you and your group out on the lake, enjoy the day and have a good time, and do our best to put a bunch of fish in the box!

Come know you want to.....Let's Go Fishing!"
