Where 2 Fish: The Fishing's Been Good, When You Can Get Out

First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report

  • Water temp. 49 to 50 degrees
  • Fishing this past week was like the weather on Lake Erie, FOGGY.
  • Smallmouth bass action has been OK. The Buffalo Harbor has been a safe bet for fishing and safety.  Smallmouth bass from 2 to 4 lbs. have been caught dragging tube jibs, like poor boy's mango magic and watermelon gold flake with 1/4 oz. to 3/8 oz. jig heads inside them. 
  • Smokes Creek area has also been good for bass action in the 25' to 35' depths.

Where 2 Fish: Rain Hampering the Action

First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report

  • Water temperature: 48-49  degrees
  • Smallmouth bass action has slowed down with the rain and high winds over the past week. The key to catching fish is finding clear water.
  • The Hamburg shoreline has been your best bet.
  • Tube jigs and live bait have been performing best.
  • Perch fishing is still spotty; hit or miss.
  • Walleye fishing slowed way down with the muddy water close to shore.
  • Look for fishing to pick up after rain slows down.
