Exclusive SWF Video – Small Waters Strategies – Fall harbors

Timing is everything in Great Lakes pier and harbor fishing. These areas can draw quite a crowd when salmon, steelhead and brown trout make their upriver spawning migrations. But wait out the masses, and you may discover that harbors can yield a pretty wild mixed bag, too.

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.

httpvh://youtu.be/VFxDL46Qkg0

 

“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.
