Lake Erie from Erie PA or Dunkirk NY

I'm a licensed guide in Pennsylvania and my New York license is pending but should be ready for this season.  I offer custom guided trips on Lake Erie, Pittsburgh 3 Rivers, and Yough Lake only during the best seasons to experience awesome catch and release Bass fishing.  You will fish from a new Ranger 21 foot Z521C Bass boat powered by a Mercury 250HP Pro XS Motor, Minn Kota 112LB Thrust Trolling Motor, and Lowrance GPS, Sonar, 3D imaging graphs.  You can bring your own rods/reels or use my Shimano and Lews reels and St Croix rods. 

If customers are flexible on dates we can monitor weather and conditions to choose days offering the very best and safe fishing  considering wind & water clarity to guarantee an awesome experience.   Suggest contacting me for details and to discuss options for your trip.  We can tentatively schedule  dates and confirm when weather and  conditions are optimal for your trip.   

Lake Erie is best for quality and quantity from mid May to early July, and again from late August until December. Yes when conditions are good September to December are the absolute best months for trophy smallmouth on Lake Erie.  You will be fishing mainly between 15 to 45 feet using artificial lures only ( drop shot plastics, tubes, blade baits), and possibly crankbaits, jerkbaits, top waters  if fish are in the shallow rock.  Trips last fall  yielded 20 plus fish days averaging 4 lbs , with some 5's and a few 6lb class fish.  

Erie Rates:      $400  4-5 hours of fishing,   $600 full day 8-9 hours      1 or 2 people  

Yough Lake  Rt 40 Marina Launch

Yough Lake can be excellent for smallmouth from late April until end of May.  Wind is not a factor and water conditions are normally stable during this time.  You can expect to catch many 12'' - 15" smallmouth with the occasional  3+ lb fish.  This is an excellent trip for families/kids and the boat will safely handle up to three people since waves, winds, and current not an issue on the lake. 

Yough Rates:      $350  4-5 hours of fishing,   $500 full day 8-9 hours      1 , 2 or 3 people  

3 Rivers SouthSide, McKeesport, Elizabeth, or Charleroi Launch

The rivers can offer excellent fishing in the spring up until mid June and again in the fall with both numbers and quality smallmouth and hybrid bass. Conditions are important due to the changes in water clarity and level so I will only take clients out when I am confident the fishing will be good.  I offer short 3-4 hour afternoon/evening trips in September and October when exceptional catches of smallmouth and hybrid bass are possible.  

3 River Rates:      $325  4-5 hours of fishing,   $450 full day 8-9 hours      1 or 2 people
