What People are Saying

“I and other members of the In-Fisherman staff have fished with Frank Campbell frequently in recent years, targeting smallmouth bass, lake trout, and steelhead. We have had tremendous success filming great TV shows there in the Buffalo area and also getting lots of material for articles, as well as outstanding photographs. Frank has always put us on a hot bite within minutes of getting on the water. I can’t wait to get back!”

– Steve Quinn,
Senior Editor, In-Fisherman

“I have a decade of fishing with Captain Frank Campbell with some of the best fishing magazine writers, TV Shows, and anglers in the business. The Eastern Basin of Lake Erie is hands down the greatest smallmouth fishery ever … not “way back when” … TODAY. If there’s someplace else that you EXPECT to have 100 fish days with numerous 5-6 pounders and every cast brings the shot at a TRUE giant smallmouth of 7 lbs+, I’d love to know where it is. Captain Frank Campbell has the knowledge, experience, and ability to give you the trip of a lifetime … everytime. Whether you bring your own boat and follow his lead or fish out of his rig, you’ll be ruined on smallmouth fishing anywhere else. If Steelhead, Lakers, Kings, Walleye, Perch or any of the other “Great Lakes and Niagara River” fish are more your speed, Captain Frank was my “go to” guy for big fish, a great trip, and guaranteed results.”

“Frank Campbell is one of the most skilled multi-species anglers I’ve had the privilege to share a boat with. His knowledge of the varied waters of the Niagara/Buffalo area reflect his years of experience fishing them. Frank can switch from steelhead to smallies smoother than a veteran trucker gliding through the gears of a 10-speed Eaton transmission. He is responsible for putting me on my personal best smallmouth bass, a 7.5 pounder. Any angler booking a trip with Frank is in for a treat!”
