Welcome to Chante Charters

"Captain John Sim’s Chante Fishing Charters is one of the longest operating and most experienced charter fleet in Lake Erie; it’s just a bonus that his son Jared is now in his 10th season making it a combined 50 years of fishing experience. Lake Erie’s Western Basin is commonly known as the #1 destination in the Great Lakes for world class walleye, tail-walking small mouth bass and jumbo yellow perch. Come visit John and Jared in Kingsville, Ontario to get a one-on-one fishing experience of a lifetime. The enjoyment of the Pelee Island get-a-way and our top notch instruction of light line casting and retrieving will be full of fish stories you will never forget." Chante Charters.
