First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report

  • Water temp: 68 degrees
  • Smallmouth bass: The action is staying steady in the Buffalo Harbor.  Lots of fish are still up on the shallow flats.  The weeds are starting to get taller and thicker every day.  Try working the edges of the weeds with a tube jig. Most Smallmouth Bass are completing their spawning and are moving into the lake, looking for their summer homes. Look for deeper water humps off of Smokes Creek.  Try dragging a tube bait like a Poor Boy's smoke with purple flake on a 3/8 oz jig head.
  • Walleye:  Fishing is good and will only get better.  The fish will start suspending more as the water temperature rises.  Seneca Shoals has been producing numbers of good Walleye.
  • Perch: The fishing has been ok.  Look for schools of fish in 40' to 45' of water.  Fish the deeper water around the bell (departure) buoy.
