Fishing Trip Planning Lake Erie

Welcome to Riverside Sportfishing ~ Lake Erie Trophy Bass Charters ~

Lake Erie's eastern basin out of Buffalo, NY has some of the finest bass and walleye fishing the Great Lakes have to offer.

This is where Lake Erie flows into the well known Niagara River Bar which flows north, connecting Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. 
These waters provide trophy size bass and walleye, year after year.

Captain Bruce has been a Lake Erie fishing guide and Niagara River fishing guide for twenty years. He prides himself not only on knowing the waters of Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and the Niagara River but helping fishermen to catch their fish of a lifetime with different techniques including live bait fishing, jigging, drop shot, and casting (spinner baits & crank baits.) He finds this very rewarding and so do his clients.

Lake Erie Fishing Resources
So, we’re more than halfway through what’s been a much milder winter than the last. At this point, things are looking good for an early spring. Spring is a great time to target those trophy smallmouths that Lake Erie produces every year, and we’re excited to see what the coming season holds.

Over the next two months, I’ll be working a booth at two fishing expos promoting a new fishing tool that two good friends of mine, Mitch Grant and George Thomas, designed. Stop by for a demonstration of their new Trailer Hook Pal and to talk about some Lake Erie bass fishing

- February 25-28: Greater Philadelphia Expo in Oaks, PA
- March 10-13: World Fishing and Outdoor Expo in Suffern, NY

Good fishing,
Capt. Bruce Blakelock
