On Lake Erie there are two primary ways to fish, which both are with artificial lures. Bass fishing on the “Erie” with topwater is the preferred bait for many anglers for great action. It just happens to be the natural way they like to feed daily. Also fishing with plastics is very popular many years ago when anglers fishing Erie for smallmouth bass would see their feeding habits. It has become the increasingly popular choice because once you’ve experienced this style of fishing you’ll quickly recognized that it’s much more productive. We use special kind of tackle and a secret way of hooking and rigging our baits to be very productive.

Pennsylvania Bass Fishing Reviews

Captain Mark Rose was exceptional

We went out on a cold rainy day just before Independence Day. Caught one Small Mouth Bass but because the weather was so miserable, Captain Mark Rose decided to take us out again the next day. We caught 6 magnificent ones the second day. Mark was very kind, patient, knowledgeable and professional and we enjoyed both trips for the price of one. I'd highly recommend Captain Mark.

It was very easy and convenient to book the trip online. The booking and payment process was the best I've ever used for a guided fishing trip. Captain Mark Rose worked as hard as he could to put us on smallmouth. He is the first guide I have ever had that did not fish while guiding because he is committed to give his clients the best trip possible. The only reason I don't give a perfect rating is because the fish weren't in a feeding mood but that is not a reflection on Mark's skill and knowledge.

Lake Erie is home to a wide variety of beautiful locations to fish. When fishing Erie there is always a species for you. On both the north and south shores there is great fishing, whether it be deep or shallow fishing for big Walleye and Smallmouth bass you can expect almost everything to happen on Lake Erie. But hold on, freshwater fishing has its share of exciting species if you don't know this. Home of the trophy largemouth bass, hard fighting smallmouth bass and good eating Walleye. And while the local area has its share of trophy bass, there is plenty to peak your interest in the area. Erie fishing trips are also the home to relaxation and summer sun after a hard winter.

When Pennsylvania bass fishing there isn't any place in the world to match the smallmouth bass fishing opportunities and with measured accomplishments for anglers then when fishing Lake Erie. It maybe the land of everything, great food, nightlife, but the great fishing is what keeps people coming back.
