CharterCam provides live pictures from a Shore-Nuf charter boat on Lake Erie.  When the boat is out you will see the lake and weather conditions and fishing action!  We're the first out-on-the-water boat webcam on the Great Lakes!  Details below.

Toledo Harbor Light #2 from NOAA.  Located out in the Maumee Bay shipping channel.  Image updates every hour.


Route 2 Sandusky Bay Bridge from ODOT.  Camera  looks North over Sandusky Bay just before the bridge.  Updates every 8 seconds.

We are developing the next generation of the CharterCam system and hope to have it deployed on a boat in mid to late April.  Until then you will probably see test photos in the CharterCam image as we field test new systems at various locations.  New technologies offer us several equipment options, so we may get the system installed a little later than expected due to testing different equipment.  Below are live photos from the CharterCam when it was deployed on the Shore-Nuf charter boat.

We took the new Chartercam system to Tampa, Florida, in December to do some field tests.  The system worked fine, sending live photos from a friend's sailboat when we were sailing on Tampa Bay.  The photo above is from a building in Tampa where I had the CharterCam installed for a few hours before I came back to Ohio.



CharterCam is the first live Webcam from a fishing boat out on the water in the Great Lakes. There is only one other boat webcam like this we know of (in Florida) so CharterCam is likely the second live boat webcam in the country!  Picture uploads will vary depending on boat location, weather, and other factors; at times the picture may not change for a few minutes or longer (watch the date/time stamp), or you may see half pictures.  If the boat is not out you will see a picture uploaded the last time the boat was out.  The left and right pictures are two other live Lake Erie web cameras.  In 2014 we plan on having numerous web camera feeds so you can see the Lake Erie Western Basin conditions from west to east.  If you have a Lake view location and an interest in providing a web cam feed, contact us.

We have a separate mobile webcam site, www.livemobilewebcam.com, where we put webcam feeds from various events and locations where we provide our mobile webcams.  If you would like to have a mobile webcam at your event contact Dave at westbasin @ cs.com (spaces inserted in the e-mail address here to avoid Internet phishing programs).  Please put 'mobile webcam' in the subject line so I know the e-mail isn't spam.
