Lake Eerie smallies

Recommended Posts

so where are the Lake Eerie smallie fisherman?

My brother is planning a trip to Sandusky and is going to take a charter one day. He has his choice of a Walleye Charter, Perch Charter, or a smallie Charter...so I was wondering how the smallie fishing was on Eerie.

Man thats a tough one 8-12 lb walleye, lots of 3-5 smallies summer, Spring 5-7 lb. and fall, and then gaint perch 10-12 inch all day.

Man am I dreaming ok 3 days 3 trips should only cost $500 bribe money for the wife.

Guess I'm lucky living on the Northshore of Lake Ont. I can do this everyday.

My next Tournament will be on Bay of Quinte everyday 2.5 - 5-5 lb largemouth 50/day normal.

I haven't been to Erie yet this year, but I've fished smallmouth tournaments there since the early 90s. A lot has changed in that time, with the smallmouth population much reduced (like 80% reduced) within 10+ miles of Sandusky. Nice catches are still possible mid-lake and farther north. Our weather has been hot and dry for several weeks now, so the spring bite is long gone. But if your brother takes a smallmouth charter, I imagine they'll head for Pelee Island or even north of Pelee and will use live craws. The charters tend to go for quantity over quality, so he can expect more two-pounders than bigger ones. But a 5-pounder is still possible, especially earlier in the day. From mid-August onward, the bigger fish move to the breaklines in 25 feet or so and get a little more aggressive. If I were going to take one smallmouth trip and wanted big fish, I'd go either April or October. Problem is, weather is iffy both of those seasons. Smallies like cool or cooling water, though. It gets their metabolism moving. -- JC
