First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report

Fishing forecast for the holiday weekend looks great.  Hope the weather is as good as the fishing will be.

  • Smallmouth bass:  Fishing is still hot and the size of the fish is getting bigger.  Live bait has been working well.  Try fishing a crayfish or a leech on a 3-way rig. 

  • Areas to fish are Waverly Shoals to the old pier on the Canadian side.  This has been real good for the past month.  The Round House has been a good area for fishing.  Try drifting on each side of the building.  Seneca Shoals has also seen its share of good smallmouth.  Fish to the west of the buoy.  Look  for the drop offs in 32' & 40' of water.

  • Walleye:  Fish are still being caught in the Emeral Channel.  Fish the areas around the Red Channel markers (EU4) buoys early in the morning.  The Fish Market (foot of Ferry Wall) is still holding a few walleye.  The deeper water (40' to 50') from the bell bouy to Seneca Shoals has seen some good fish being caught.  The walleye are feeding on the gobys this time of the year.  Fish a dark-color worm harness on 3-way rig on the bottom.  Colors like black and purple with a little orange have worked well.

  • Perch:  Fish are starting to show up around Meyer"s Reef. Fish the deeper edge of the reef in 40' to 45' foot depth.  Look for fish on your electronics and anchor over the schools.
