Smallmouth bass fishing at Lake Erie especially during summer is
certainly too much fun. Although when it comes to Smallmouth bass fishing
in Lake Erie, there is no such thing as too much fun.

Lake Erie is also known as the Great Lake. It nourishes the best
smallmouth bass fishes in the United States.

Many anglers who do regular smallmouth bass fishing at Lake Erie have
already made a minimum catch of fifty smallmouth bass fishes averaging
over four pounds each on a weekend! These are great numbers that would
surely attract the attention of any bass fishing enthusiast.

What can be the reason why smallmouth bass fishing at Lake Erie yields so
much of the good catches? Well Lake Erie aside from its being so large a
lake offers an excellent habitat and forage. The massiveness of the lake
has given the smallmouth bass the ease of pressure usually given by small
lakes thus making this great lake a Mecca of small mouth bass fishes.

But when you’re up for a bass fishing at Lake Erie, you must be very
vigilant with the weather. Although it is a lake, the waters often
resemble that of the ocean. A clear bright day may suddenly turn into a
bad one accompanied by forceful winds just like what happened to some ten
bass boats fishing the lake sometime in September of 1992.

Certainly Lake Erie is one of the most diverse fishing grounds in the
country. In this lake you will not only find the most famous smallmouth
bass fishes but also large quantity of yellow perch, the largemouth bass,
the northern pike, white bass, the walleye and many other bass fish
species.
While bass fishing at Lake Erie you must remember some standard
regulations which are imposed in some states such as in Pennsylvania, if
you are to catch the walleye, it must already be at least 18 inches,
smaller than this is not allowed.

In Ohio, which covers about 262 miles of shoreline, smallmouth bass
fishing at Lake Erie during summer have limits as to number the of bags.
You are allowed to have three bags only instead of four and during any
other time, you can catch up to a maximum of six bags.

During spawning period that is from March to April you are not allowed to
catch using the treble hooks. These are new regulations you have to
remember.

So if you are bass fishing at Lake Erie and want to share with the
typical smallmouth catch of 80,000 smallmouths during a six week period
starting end of June, just after the spawning period, you can come to
Long point Bay. The smallmouth swims through this bay as they travel back
to the main lake after the spawning period. The Presque Island area is
also a good ground for fishing smallmouth. You may do deep water jigging
and catch so much fish.

Offshore smallmouth bass fishing at Lake Erie is highly variable. Walleye
anglers often have to travel more than a dozen miles to find fish, but
this is normal in most of Lake Erie.

While off-shore fishing may not come very attractive particularly to
beginners or amateur fishers, there is also a big chance to a good shore-
fishing, especially for white bass, from the short pier. Channel catfish
can be caught here, but to maximize catch in the shore fishing, you must
fish in the night or when the water is discolored.

In recent years, it was noted that there is a phenomenon of increasing
clear water in the lake which can be attributed to the so called “zebra
water infestation” which has been driving the smallmouth species to the
deep waters even during spawning thus trolling is still the number one
way of catching the smallies.

When you are along the 42 mile shoreline Lake Erie in the State of
Pennsylvania you may launch at the harbor of Presque Isle Bay at the city
of Erie. Here you will have an easy way to catch the abundant yellow
perch, walleye, steelhead and the smallmouth bass. Perch and walleye
fishing is generally excellent at north point of Presque Isle while
smallmouth bass fishing is best in east of Erie.

Presque Isle Bay provides relatively calm water that is suitable for
smaller boats. It also offers good fishing for largemouth bass, northern
pike, crappies and bluegills along with smallmouth bass and yellow perch.

Well if you think this summer is the season for you to go smallmouth bass
fishing at Lake Erie, and your jumping point is Pennsylvania, worry not
where to stay because there are numerous campsites and hotels there just
along the shorelines of Lake Erie.
