Bass Fishing Lake Erie

If you’re serious about exploring Lake Erie, then you need to book a trip with Bass Fishing Lake Erie. Captain Mark is a local who enjoys teaching others to fish. As a family man himself, he’ll put your whole family at ease. Everyone will enjoy a day out with him. When you head out on the waters of Lake Erie with Captain Mark Rose, you’ll have the fishing adventure of a lifetime!

Hop on board his 21’ bass boat that can easily accommodate groups of up to 3 anglers on board and fishing at the same time. The boat comes equipped with full safety and navigational features so you can fish with peace of mind.

A major highlight to fishing on Lake Erie is fishing for Smallmouth Bass during the spring and early summer. You can sight cast for huge Smallmouth Bass with artificial lures, all of which the captain will provide. Whether you want to throw grubs, drop shots, jerk baits, or topwater baits, you can have a fishing trip you’ll never forget – and don’t worry, you’ll know what all of these are after a trip with Capt. Mark.

Capt. Mark will let you know about changing regulations for keeping Bass. Outside of this season, these fish are strictly catch and release. This is not a trip for filling up the freezer, but for having a lot of fun fishing. When you explore the waters of Lake Erie, expect tired arms from catching more Bass than you can imagine.

All the rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price. Capt. Mark is sponsored by some top brands, so you know that this gear won’t let you down when going after big fish!

You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day of the trip, and are welcome to bring food and drink along. This can go into the captain’s built-in cooler.

Book a trip today with Bass Fishing Lake Erie for an unforgettable day out the whole family will enjoy!

Captain Mark first got his license over a decade ago. He used to do a lot of tournament fishing but made the switch to guiding full time, which he enjoys even more. Guiding is his full time job. Capt. Mark is a family man, with a 3-year old child who he is currently teaching to fish. He will always work hard to get you on fish and make sure you and your group are having a good time.
