Lake Erie Smallmouth Charters

Lake Erie Smallmouth Bass Charters

Smallmouth bass entertain you with their leaps and tenacity to get loose; therefore, you are in for a fight no matter the size. Even a small one will fight and entertain you with high leaps from the water. Most importantly, they taste as feisty! Smallmouth bass charters on Lake Erie are best during early fall thru October. The water is still fairly cold, but topside is enjoyable weather. So, I would book today to reserve your day!!

The Best Smallies Are Here! 

Lake Erie offers arguably the best smallmouth bass fishing in the United States. Therefore, anglers travel from all over to fish in the Western Basin. Smallmouth Bass are found along the entire shoreline of Lake Erie because of the hot spots and rocky structure, and drop-offs in 15-35 feet of water.

Smallmouth Bass Sizes

The average smallmouth bass our customer’s catch is between 2 and 4 pounds; most importantly, it’s the best eating size.  On average, we handle 30 smallmouth per fishing charter. Therefore, there is always a hefty 4 or 5-pound trophy smallmouth to be caught. We are excited because the Ohio State record smallmouth impressive 8 lbs. 4 oz caught on Lake Erie.
