Check out this Bass Fishing Lake Erie Update:

Richard and his son Cole were looking to cash in on some Lake Erie Bass Fishing out of Erie, PA. Captain Mark Rose had the pleasure of fishing with them. They were traveling from Virginia on vacation and wanted to land some quality smallmouth bass. Luckily, this is Capt Mark’s specialty during the summer and fall months.

Family vacations are always a great way to experience something new. During August, the smallmouth bass moves into deeper waters. Most anglers have never caught bass so deep before. As result, summertime smallmouth bass fishing is a unique outdoor adventure for most. Richard and Cole never caught bass like this before.

Captain Mark got them some big smallmouth bass on their fishing trip. It was a quick 4-hour charter making for a great day on the water. The main choice of bait was a drop shot rig in about 30-40 ft of water. One awesome part about summertime fishing as well is that you can catch walleye in the mix.

Richard and Cole had so much fun fishing on Lake Erie. Captain Mark is looking forward to their next adventure in Pennsylvania again soon!

When you have the opportunity to show someone or a group of people somewhere new to them, it is always an adventure. They wanted to catch both smallmouth bass and walleye and the summer bite was strong for them. It was a fantastic trip on the water with 17 walleye and 13 smallmouth bass. Their biggest 2 smallmouth bass weighed in at 5.4 and 5.3 pounds, which were also personal bests for them.

The most productive bait was a drop shot rig in 32-42 feet of water. Deepwater allows the smallmouth and walleye to stay cooler when the water is warm. If you are looking to have a great trip like this, our experts are the way to go.
