CharterCam provides live pictures from a 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(s) of the CharterCam system.  New technologies offer us several webcam system equipment options, and we've had some delays in getting and configuring the new equipment.  This has resulted in delays getting a system installed.  We hope to have a system deployed on a boat by late June.  Until then you will probably see test photos in the CharterCam image as we field test new systems at various locations.    Below are live photos from the CharterCam when it was deployed on a Shore-Nuf charter boat.



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.
