The species of Smallmouth bass ranks as one of the most popular species of fish for northern bass anglers. Not a great tasting fish, it's generally fished only as a sportfish, but state laws allow some harvest. Smallmouth bass feed multiple times a day, generally concentrated in schools when feeding. They can be fun to catch by youth anglers, anglers with disabilities and men and women of all ages.

About the Smallmouth Charters

In Erie, there is an abundance of Lake Erie Smallmouth Fishing Charters that provide fishermen with incredible Smallmouth fishing experience. In Presque Isle Bay, it’s a new adventure every time the boat leaves the dock. It is a high-quality habitat that produces Largemouth bass, Walleye, Perch, Lake Trout, and many others.

When Smallmouth fishing gets underway,  it picks up to full swing really quickly. We typically start our Lake Erie Smallmouth fishing charters season in early April depending on how cold of winter we have had, sometimes we have to wait for the ice to thaw. As July brings us into summer, we start to head more offshore and drift on humps. With all this said, no need to worry our experienced captains know when, where, and how to make the changes necessary to make your Smallmouth fishing charter a great one. Whether you are an experienced Lake Erie angler or first-timer angler we will take the time to make the trip fun and enjoyable for everyone.

Smallmouth Fishing Charters

As we get into late summer it heats up the water temperatures, so we have to begin fishing deep to catch the majority of our Smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass is highly productive and creates very good hook-up and landing odds when catching them so deeply. These are common occurrences in the summer and fall months when we get bad weather but not to worry. We always have mutable opportunities to catch smallmouth bass at different depths with different techniques. Erie PA smallmouth fishing charters is truly a fun way to spend the day CATCHING Smallmouth!
