Lake Erie Bass & Walleye Charters

menu button The North East corner of Lake Erie also known as the Lake Erie Eastern Basin on the shore of Buffalo NY area. The finest Smallmouth Bass fishing in the world with a premier Bass Guide of Western New York. You can expect 20 - 30 of these bronze brawlers a day, with much better days common. These fish average 3 1/2 - 4 pounds, with 5 - 6 pound plus Trophy Smallmouth Bass common in May & June. I had a client catch a 7 pound 13 ounce Monster Smallmouth Bass back in 2007 and have had plenty of other fish pushing well over 7 pounds, over the years. The N.Y.D.E.C. says there are still others out there bigger than the state record of 8.5 pounds from their electro-shocking and net sampling analysis! The summer bass fishing is even better for those who want numbers of fish. 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. 50 - 75 fish days are common, with 100+ a possibility.
NY DEC's description.

The Walleye fishing is equally excellent on Lake Erie for eater size fish in the 17" - 24", 2 - 4 pound range from the fantastic 2012 & 2013 spawns as well as 2015 spawn being one of the best in history with a bunch of 13" - 15" Walleyes coming up. There are still some Big Eyes in the 5 - 8 pound class with legitimate shot at a 10 pound plus Trophy Eye for the wall. All fishing is "hands-on" by drifting/power trolling with electric motor to present live bait & spinner/worm harnesses or casting jigs to the hungry schools of Erie Walleye. You'll feel the bite, have to set the hook and fight the fish until I net them for you. This fishing is usually an early bite (6:30-9am, although, it sometimes lasts longer on overcast or rough water days), then we usually go after Smallies to finish out the day.

There are Jumbo Yellow Perch available in combination with any Bass or Walleye trip. These great eating fish are some of the biggest in the country averaging 10" - 13" about a 1 to 1 1/4 pounds with some going to 15" and over 2 pounds!
