If you are from Ohio, Michigan, New York, Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, or Indiana, you probably know that the Great Lakes region provides fantastic fishing!
If you are from other areas in the country, did you know:
- Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior are each among the five Great Lakes?
- Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world, spanning nearly 32,000 square miles?
- More than 20% of the world’s fresh water is in the Great Lakes?
- The Great Lakes Region is the primary water source for more than 40 million people?
Being a Westlake, Ohio company, we are only five miles from Lake Erie! We are anglers like you and love to get out on our bass and walleye boats as much as possible on Erie.
The Great Lakes Provide Variety
Whatever type of fishing you like, there is a Great Lakes fish species for you. Walleye and smallmouth bass may get most of the attention, but there are tremendous opportunities for yellow perch, white bass, muskie, or even kid-pleasing sunfish near shore with a simple bobber and worm setup. If you want to try Great Lakes fly fishing, there are tributaries offering excellent opportunities for steelhead, salmon, or brown trout.
The Great Lakes Provide Quality Fishing
Anglers frequently land giant smallmouth bass in the 4-6 pound range. Salmon, lake trout, brown trout, steelhead, walleye, and freshwater drum often exceed double-digit weights.
There are over twenty tournaments taking place on the Great Lakes this year. Check with your fishing club or fishing charter captain to learn if one is near you!
The Great Lakes Allow for Vast Spacing Between Boats
These lakes are enormous. There are hundreds of miles of shoreline and many access points for fishing. Take off boating in open water, and you will find large areas with various fishing structures such as reefs, boulders, flats, and aquatic vegetation. Ensure you have the proper fishing license and follow the correct state regulations. Most of all, ensure you and your passengers are safe in the boat.
Fishing on the Great Lakes is fantastic! Enjoy the summer on the beautiful lakes around us!
