Occasionally a camera will quit working.  If the image hasn't changed in awhile it is probably temporarily down.

CharterCam and Power Boat Cam are the only live streaming out-on-the-water boat webcams on the Great Lakes.  The fishing charter boat runs in the Western Basin of Lake Erie April - October, typically the Ohio waters from West Sister Island to east of Kelleys Island and occasionally up in Canadian waters.  Trips are usually run from 6:00am / 6:30am to 2pm daily except in bad weather.  If the "camera is offline" message is in the viewing window the boat either isn't out, is in a temporary no signal area (try again in 15-30 minutes), or the camera isn't on (special charter).  The video stream is not supported in all Internet browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer.  The latest versions of Crome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari browsers should work, as well as others.  You may need to click the stream more than once, or refresh the page, to get the live stream started.

Plans are in the works for more and better webcams in 2024.
