Check out this Bass Fishing Lake Erie update from Local Expert and Professional Captain Mark Rose:
Meet Chris, he brought along his 2 sons to explore Lake Erie and all that it had to offer. They were traveling from Pittsburgh to Erie, PA. While doing so, bass fishing was high on the menu. Lake Erie showed them a fantastic time that they will not forget. It was their first time catching smallmouth bass with several beautiful fish caught.
The conditions were fair to Chris and his boys. Sunshine and a nice breeze got the smallmouth stacked up. After several spots, Captain Mark Rose found where they were hiding. The most productive areas on this fishing trip were around 15-30 feet of water. Rocky structures were drawing the fish in to feed. The bite started off slow and then gradually picked up.
Once the school fired up, Chris and his son put over 15 smallmouth bass in the boat. Most of the fish were in the 3-4 pound range. They had 2 fish at 5 pounds as well. You really can’t beat that action, especially for this time of year.
Chris and his sons had a great time fishing on Lake Erie. Captain Mark Rose is looking forward to their next adventure in the near future!
Shortly after this fishing trip, Nordie and his good friend Denny traveled to Lake Erie. They were traveling from Harrisburg looking to crush some beautiful smallmouth bass. The numbers of fish caught on this trip climbed and everyone on board couldn’t keep their smiles away.
Nordie and Denny do a lot of fishing on the Susquehanna River but never caught big smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass do reside on this river but not in the size proportion as Lake Erie. Fishing conditions did not play nice on these guys but they managed to fight through it. The day started out with thunderstorms and winds making pretty ugly conditions.
Noticing that the conditions were not the best, Captain Mark decided to wait it out. The conditions were persistent but they went out and gave it a try. Wind and cloud cover made the fishing interesting and fantastic all at the same time.
Lake Erie showed up with some GIANT fish in the boat. Nordie and Denny’s best 5 fish weighed 5.1, 5.5, 5.11, 6.0, and 6.1 pounds. It was a great trip and everyone had a blast. They caught a total of over 30 smallmouth bass on this fishing trip. Every trip proposes new challenges but Captain Mark can always get you around some nice fish!
