When you head out on the waters of Lake Erie with Captain Mark Rose, you’ll have the fishing adventure of a lifetime!

Hop on board his 22’ Ranger bass boat that can easily accommodate groups of up to 4 anglers on board and fishing at the same time. The boat comes equipped with full safety and navigational features so you can fish with peace of mind.

A major highlight of fishing in Lake Erie is for giant smallmouth bass and walleye, Capt Mark can help you catch either or both. You can sight cast for smallmouth bass with artificial lures, all of which the captain will provide. Whether you want to throw grubs, drop shots, jerk baits, or topwater baits, you can have a fishing trip you’ll never forget – and don’t worry, you’ll know what all of these are after a trip with Capt. Mark.

Capt. Mark will let you know about changing regulations for what you can and cannot keep if that is of interest to you. The smallmouth bass trips are not charters for filling up the freezer, but for catching the most popular sportfish in the area. If you’re looking for filling the cooler, Capt Mark can do that as well during a Walleye trip.

All the rods, reels, and tackles are included in the price. Capt. Mark is sponsored by some top brands, so you know that this gear won’t let you down when going after big fish!

You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day of the trip and are welcome to bring food and drink along. This can go into the captain’s built-in cooler.

Lake Erie smallmouth experience

Mark Rose
Capt Mark Rose spent the morning with my 11 y/o son and I on a very windy and chilly Lake Erie. We landed some monster fish and had a great time. My son, Colton, got a 6 lb and 5 lb smallmouth and I got a 4 lb smallmouth and a steelhead that battled me for several minutes before we got him in the net. Drove back home to WV afterwards and already thinking about when we can go back to do it again. Thanks Mark for a great experience.

Fishing In Tough Conditions

Smallie fishing w/Captain Mark Rose in tough conditions (north winds, cold October front and misty - nasty) @ Presque Isle.. No problem! Captain Rose put us on quality fish and that’s what we caught! Challenging but FUN!
