Smallmouth Bass Adventures


Smallmouth Bass fishing on beautiful Lake Erie enjoys some of the finest in the world. Fish areas such as North Harbour Island, East Sister Shoal, Pelee Island, Transport Reef, Gull Island Shoal, and many other secluded areas of the West Basin, it is not uncommon for limits of Smallmouth Bass to be caught daily.  The season starts the last Saturday in June and runs through late October, peaking in August, where schools of quality fish can be found, many averaging five pounds. In Ohio, Catch and Release starts in May when water temperature starts climbing to 55 degrees, this is a great time for shallow water action.

Come fish aboard “This Is Reality”, a 30 foot enclosed cabin Chris Craft, with full accommodations.  Learn how to fish deep water structure with seasoned professional tournament fisherman, Captain Bob Troxel. Enjoy the scenic beauty of Lake Erie while having the opportunity to catch your fish of a lifetime.

Basic Smallmouth Bass charters are at least 8 hours from dock to dock.  The charter can accommodate up to six fishermen.  Quality rods, reels and lures are supplied.  An Ohio license is needed for U. S. Waters and a Canadian license is required for fishing the Canadian side.  Due to recent events, it is best to acquire a Canadian license for the trip.  Both Ohio and Canadian licenses can be gotten online.  See the License Tab on the website.
