Ryan, his son Ryan, Levi and Rob came out fishing this summer on Lake Erie with Captain Mark. Ryan and Ryan have been out fishing with us before. Captain Mark never fished with Rob before and this was Levi’s first time fishing in a boat. They were in-store for a true Great Lakes fishing adventure.
While traveling from the Pittsburgh area, they wanted to land some quality smallmouth bass. The main focus on this fishing charter was the Main lake where Captain Mark knew fish would be holding. Big fish continue to move in and out of this key area allowing for great catches and fights. Water temperatures on the main lake were right around 61 degrees but continuing to fluctuate.
What an amazing afternoon fishing trip with 35 fish in the boat. Levi caught his personal best smallmouth bass weighing 5.71 pounds. Ryan also caught his personal best weighing 5.1 pounds. Rob also came in with a personal best weighing 4.5. Everyone caught big bass and that’s all you can hope for on a great lakes fishing charter.

Just shortly after this fishing trip, Captain Mark adventured out for three days on Lake Erie. Presque Isle Bay is where your Great Lakes fishing charter will launch from. It is the gateway to Lake Erie. Sandy and Scott was a nice couple traveling from Cincinnati, Ohio to enjoy some vacation time in Erie, Pennsylvania.
While they were visiting, they wanted to get out on Lake Erie to crush some smallmouth bass fishing. The only way to spend your first time on Lake Erie is to spend three full days out on the water. Fishing was really good and they caught big numbers in three days.
You can catch fish in multiple different spots across the lake and bay. Hammermill Plant on the main lake, Thompson Bay, the Monument in the Bay to Niagara boat ramp is all excellent fishing grounds for quality smallmouth bass. Water temperatures were 63 degrees in the bay and 59 on the main lake. As temperatures fluctuate, the bass will move in and out.
Sandy and Scott had a phenomenal time out on Lake Erie with Captain Mark Rose. Sandy caught the biggest bass weighing 6.41 pounds, an absolute trophy smallmouth bass. They also caught numbers of 4-5 pound bass. When it comes to Bass Fishing Lake Erie, now is the time to put the hammer down on them.

Brent and Tim were traveling from West Virginia to Erie for the first time. It was their first time also fishing with Bass Online. Fishing conditions and weather were rapidly changing which made the bite start out slower than normal. It was only a matter of time before we found them and they started landing fish after fish.
The Main Lake and Bay were key areas on this fishing trip. Monument to Niagara Boat Ramp was highly productive areas to catching the 45 bass they put in the boat.
