Lake Erie: “Hands down, the world’s greatest smallmouth fishery”
Trophy fish have a habit of showing off for the camera in the Buffalo-Niagara area, a region blessed with history, cultural character, stunning natural beauty, fine and distinctive cuisine, and three remarkable multi-species fisheries that produce bragging-sized fish in all four seasons.
“The smallmouth stack up in these current areas,” explains Mark Davis, veteran Erie smallmouth angler and host of the “Big Water Adventures” television series.
Smallmouth bass move up from deep water wintering areas in spring, with many moving toward the breakwalls and into the harbor to put on the spring feedbag and to spawn. The gaps are great places to intercept them.
