Lake Erie Fishing
Bass & Walleye Charters
The North East corner of Lake Erie also known as the Lake Erie Eastern Basin at the shore of Buffalo NY. Shallowest of the Great Lakes, that is a excellent numbers fishery of Smallmouth Bass and Walleye.
Trophy Smallmouth Bass
The finest Smallmouth Bass fishing in the world with a premier Bass Guide of Western New York. With our Bass Charter you can expect 20 to 30 of these bronze brawlers a day, with much better days common. These fish average 3 1/2 to 4 pounds, with 5 to 6+ pound Trophy Smallmouth Bass common in May & June.
I had a client catch a 7 pound 13 ounce Monster Smallmouth Bass back in 2007.
The N.Y.D.E.C. says there are still others out there bigger than the state record of 8.4 pounds from their electro-shocking and net sampling analysis!
After the Best May I've ever had last spring, with 95 Smallies over 5 pounds and 20 of those Monsters going over 6 pounds! I predict the State Record will be shattered several times in the next couple of years! Barring any major die offs from winter kill, lake roll overs, VHS disease or a Botulism outbreak.
Join in on the FUN
The summer bass fishing is even better for those who want numbers of fish and action. This is a great time to bring kids or novice anglers to make sure they stay busy learning to how to catch lots of excellent fighters. 30-50 fish days are common. NY DEC's description.
The Walleye fishing is equally excellent on Lake Erie from June to September for eater size fish. 17" to 24", in the 2 to 4 pound range from the fantastic 2012 & 2013 spawns. In 2015 & 2016 had one of the best spawns in history and have more 13" to 15" Walleyes coming up.
There are still some Big Eyes in the 5 to 8 pounds with a real shot at a 10+ pound Trophy Eye.
We do what ever it takes to make it a fun day loading the boat with great eating Walleye, whether it's drifting livebait, bottom bouncing spinners or open water trolling with planer boards, leadcore line, divers or downriggers!
A Lake Erie Eye Opener!
Active Excursion Time
This fishing is usually an early bite. Although sometimes it goes all day on overcast or rough water days. Then after your limit or enough for dinner, we go after Smallies to finish out the day.
Another Option in Yellow Perch
There are Jumbo Yellow Perch available in April into early May and again in the fall. Yellow perch provide fast action and lots of fun averaging 10" to 13" at about 1 to 1 1/4 pounds with some going to 15" and over 2 pounds!
Yellow Perch are a great eating fish too that rival Walleye for being the best eating freshwater fish.
