Welcome to the Webcams Page.  These webcams show Lake conditions from various locations in the Western Basin of Lake Erie, west to east.  CharterCam is our own specialized webcam which provides live pictures from Hawg'n Fishing Charters during the open water fishing season.  When the boat is out, usually from 6am until about 2pm, you will see the lake and weather conditions live and live fishing action.  PanCam slowly pans across the Lake throughout the day to show different lake views from the Port Clinton shoreline.  Currently it is stationary.  The other webcams are government, commercial, or private webcams. 

We will display a camera when it is activated this spring. 

Port Clinton / Islands WebCam

The WebCam uploads every 5 seconds.  It faces northeast from the Port Clinton shoreline.  Catawba Point is on the right, South Bass Island in the center, Green Island on the left.  The islands are only visible on clear days.

CharterCam Charter Boat Webcam

May 22-27 we will be testing cam systems out on the boat.  Pictures may vary from complete / incomplete and change at varying rates.

ODOT Route 2 Sandusky Bay Bridge.  Camera usually looks South along the roadway across Sandusky Bay but sometimes they switch cameras.  Should upload every 5 seconds.  

Occasionally a camera will quit working, so if the image hasn't changed in awhile it is probably down.

Below are some photos from the CharterCam while it was out walleye and perch fishing in 2015. 


CharterCam is the first live Webcam from a fishing boat out on the water in the Great Lakes.  Picture uploads will vary depending on the connection strength, especially when the boat is out far from land.  Trips are usually early morning to mid afternoon.  The 'Fishing is done for the day' photo will usually show when the boat is done for the day.  The last picture from the last trip may also be shown.

If you have or know of a good location for a Lake Erie webcam, let us know.  Contact Dave at westbasin @ cs.com (spaces inserted in the e-mail address here to avoid automated website data collection programs).  Please put 'Lake Erie Webcam' in the subject line so I know the e-mail isn't spam.
