Lake Erie Smallmouth Fishing in Erie Pennsylvania

Lake Erie Smallmouth Fishing

Bass Fishing is freshwater sport fishing. It truly can leave you with the same thrill as you would get traveling offshore in search for pelagic species. Whether you are in the hunt for largemouth or smallmouth, they both provide an exceptional experience. Lake Erie Smallmouth Fishing has been spectacular and is only just getting started.

Lake Erie is a large Great Lake with an abundance of fishing that it can offer. When traveling to the United States, whether from a different continent or Country, make sure you land the smallmouth bass of your dreams. In order to target this incredible species of bass, local expert Captains are needed. Capt Mark Rose is a true expert with years of experience and knowledge of this amazing lake.

Martin was traveling from Toronto, Canada to fish Lake Erie with Captain Mark. He is originally from Africa and never caught a smallmouth bass before on Lake Erie. While visiting the Lake, he had no choice but to land his first one. Captain Mark provided him with an experience of a lifetime. The destination of choice was Erie, Pennsylvania out of Presque Isle Bay.

Most of the fishing on this trip focused in the bay. Martin landed 25 smallmouth bass with the biggest weighing 5 pounds. He could not have been more excited to get a fish of that caliber. Now is the time of year to come catch big smallmouth bass on Lake Erie.

The most effective baits to use are jerk baits, tubes, steel shad lures, and live bait on occasion. Fish are moving up to spawn and are holding in 7-8 foot of water. Martin is looking forward to his next experience and adventure out on Erie with Captain Mark!

After this great fishing trip, the action continued. Jeff, Jamie and Brad were traveling to Erie from just outside of Pittsburgh. They were coming to cash in on some Lake Erie Gold. Weather conditions made for an interesting trip but did not stop the bite.

These guys boated 30 plus smallmouth bass in their 6 hour fishing trip. The main focus yet again was the Bay throwing tubes, drop shots, jerk baits and some live bait. As the temperatures rise, the fish will continue to move up from 4 to 10 foot of water. Water temperatures are holding at 55-58 degrees.

Captain Mark can’t wait for the next time Jeff, Jamie and Brad come back for more action. They had a great fishing trip and we look forward to fishing with them again in the future.
