by | Sep 20, 2020

Days on the Water: 2
Who we fished with: friends, clients
Where we fished: Upper Niagara, Lake Erie
What we were Targeting: Smallmouth Bass, Freshwater Drum
Tactics: ned rigs, crawfish


This Past Week

Mother Nature rudely interrupted our family vacation to Connecticut and Rhode Island with big wind and waves.  That trip report is forthcoming but in short, we returned home early allowing me to execute a couple guided trips.

The bass bite was good this past week/fish were active, but the east winds made covering water effectively kinda tough.  The trend continues – numbers were at a decently entertaining level and the average size was way up from previous weeks.  This pattern will continue through the end of October so if you’re a big bass fan and you want to get out soon – give us a call.

Next Week

I’ll be splitting my time between the Upper and Lower Niagara River. King salmon are starting to show up in the Lower – numbers don’t seem to be high but if you’re a fan of fishing for kings and are willing to put in a lot of work, chances are high you’ll land a couple.

This is the start of the fall surge/crazy busy season – I’ll be on the water every day until Thanksgiving – Mother Nature permitting. Our schedule is nearly full from now til then but give us a call if you’re thinking of getting on the water – I’m sure I can find a window for you.

Stay well my friends – mentally and physically,
