Deep Smallmouth Bass Fishing
Smallmouth bass fishing is one of the best summertime activities in Pennsylvania. Many anglers and visitors overlook the bass fishing experience when traveling to Erie, PA. After enjoying all that this beautiful destination has to offer, make sure to check out what Lake Erie truly has to offer. Deep Smallmouth Bass fishing is a unique experience and will provide you with memories of a lifetime!
During these summer months, the smallmouth bass goes into deeper water. Warm weather really heats up the water column and the smallies push deeper to feed and stay cool. If you can analyze the structure with great electronics like the Lowrance Depth Finder, you can really increase your chances at catching some big summertime bass.
Check out this Lake Erie Bass Fishing Update with Local Expert and Professional Captain Mark Rose:
Captain Mark had the pleasure of fishing with Bob for two days of fishing on Lake Erie. Bob was traveling from Harrisburg, PA looking to chase down some smallmouth bass. Bass fishing is an excellent way to spend your retirement. One of the best parts about fishing is that anyone of any age can enjoy a day on the water.
Bob loves to be in the outdoors and exploring new fisheries. Most of his fishing has been on river and streams and not drop shotting for smallmouth bass. Deepwater smallmouth fishing is a great way to be introduced to a different style of fishing. Captain Mark took Bob offshore to look for structure and drop-offs.
While using the technology by Lowrance, they came across some excellent waters to catch fish. Most of the bass were biting in 25-50 feet of water. After finding your schools and patches of fish, drop that bait down there, make it dance, and then hold on.
Bob spent two days on Lake Erie catching some excellent numbers of fish. He caught 30 smallmouth bass and 50 walleyes on these fishing trips. The hot spot to catch these fish were from the Hammermill plant to Shades beach. You can find some great fish if you know what to look for.
Bob had a great time fishing in Erie, PA. Captain Mark is looking forward to his next adventure whether back on Erie or in Florida.
It was not long after this fishing adventure that Captain Mark Rose was back out on the water. Lake Erie has been a blessing this summer and it only continues to produce. Captain Mark had the pleasure of fishing with Jacob traveling from Atlanta, Georgia, and Kris from Fort Worth, Texas. They were traveling to Erie, PA to slam some smallmouth bass in the deep waters.
The conditions were hot but that made the smallies cooperate. When you find the right school, you can have a blast landing quality bass all trip long. Drop shot style baits were yet again very effective on these deep water bass. The walleye were down deep as well and they had a great time landing several of those.
One of the best feelings about being a guide or fishing captain is helping a client and traveler accomplish a bucket list item. When you accomplish this, you can have an angler hooked for life. Jacob and Kris are looking forward to traveling back here in the Fall to catch more bass with Captain Mark!
If you are looking to cross smallmouth bass fishing off your bucket list, now is the time to do so. The smallmouth are biting and it will continue to get better. Once Erie, PA gets over the heat spell of summer, you will have the opportunity to catch smallies back up in the shallows one last time. Don’t miss out on your fishing adventures here in Florida. We look forward to seeing you on the water next time!
