Oneida Lake Walleye Fishing

When they said they expected this years walleye fishing on Oneida lake to be even better than last years I thought they were crazy. Last years fishing was unbelievable. Turns out they were right. The fishing has been hot all summer.

Don’t get me wrong it has been a grind a times. It hasn’t been just drop a line in anywhere and catch fish. These fish school up and move together. I have had to spend a lot of time on the water to stay on top of them. Many days prefishing for trips or going out before the customers arrive to make sure the fish are where I think they are. It also helps to have great friends that let me know when conditions change if I am not out that day.

I have been blessed to have many great customers this summer. Almost all of which I have sent home with a limit of tasty fillets.

That being said the fishing might get a little tougher as we get into the end of August. Not to worry I will be on the water multiple days a week to stay on the fish. We will still get fish we will just have to work a little harder for them is all.

September and October the fishing will get easier again as the walleye put the feed bag on before winter. I do have open fall dates but the best ones are filling up. Give me a call to get in on the action.

Today I had the pleasure if guiding Adam and Rich. The Lake was not what you would call happy. It was a bumby ride for sure. Lucky for us the walleye didn’t care what was going on on the surface and were very hungry. They left with a limit of walleye filets and many more were released.

The walleye fishing on Oneida Lake has remained excellent. Over the last 2 weeks I have had a bunch of excellent trips. All of which have ended with limits of walleye in the livewell.

A few days ago Chris Scriba asked me to help him with a 2 boat trip. We both used different techniques but eneded with the same results. Our guests went home with piles of filets to enjoy.

If you would like to get in on the action I still have some openings and will be fishing well into the fall.

Last night I met a great couple and we had a fantastic evening of walleye fishing on Oneida Lake.

Dave and Deb booked a four hour charter with me for last evening. We had a great time trolling up a total of 16 walleye, 12 of which we keeper size fish.

The fish have moved a bit but are still actively feeding. The mornings and evenings have been the best bites but we are catching fish throughout the day. Typical walleye trolling set ups such as worm harnesses are getting the job done.

If you want in on the action give me a call. Don’t wait until the last minute as dates are booking up at a steady rate.

The walleye fishing on Oneida Lake is still hot hot hot. Both trolling and jigging are taking fish. I have dates available if you want in on the action.

Last night Rob and Jesse met me at the launch to find a very stiff east wind. With the rough lake I gave them the option to reschedule or fish. They weren’t scared of the wind and waves so we fished.

We started out trolling which produced numerous walleye. The trolling bite slowed a bit so we decided to try jigging. It was the right decision as we put the rest of our limit in the boat on jigs.

Dave and his son Ben had an excellent day fishing Oneida Lake with me. Spinner and worm were on fire again. We started the morning with 75 worms and used every one of them.

Ben was very happy to land the lunker of the day, a nice 23″ walleye. If you want in on the action give me a call. Happy Independence Day everyone.

Kory and Logan had a great day with me fishing for walleye on Oneida Lake. They went home with a limit of tasty walleye fillets.

Trolling 20 to 30 feet of water with spinners and worms was the ticket again Monday. This is often the best technique in the summer. I still have plenty of day available so give me a call to book today.

This morning started of with lightening. We waited at the launch for it to pass then headed out on very calm water. Today’s trip was 4 guys so I had Wayne Weber running the second boat for me.

We both headed to different spots using different techniques to see which was best. Turned out to be a slower than expected bite for both of us. That being said between trolling cranks and worms Mike, Will, David, and Tony all left with their limits of walleye. They also took home a few bonus fish.

Overall it was a great day with excellent customers. The weather was better then expected and that is always a plus. I have dates available in the near future if you want to get out walleye fishing on Oneida Lake.

Last night I had an evening charter with Cassie and Scott. The weather was a bit iffy and we thought we might end up wet. It turned out to be a fairly nice night.

Not only did the weather cooperate but the walleye followed suit. We had no trouble trolling up a limit of very nice fish. Scott landed the nicest of the night at 22.5 inches.

I had a great time fishing with Scott and Cassie. The fishing has been fantastic and calls have been pouring in. If you want to get in on the action don’t wait to lock in your date.

Oneida Lake weekend walleye fishing

Saturday I had the pleasure of taking out Carrie and her kids Delaney and Derek. It was a special trip for Derek as it was his birthday.

Unfortunately for the kids it was a slow day for us. We marked a lot of fish but had trouble getting them to go. We did manage a few keepers and a bunch of shorts. Not getting more keepers definitely bothered me more than the kids. They had a blast being on the boat and reeling in fish even if they weren’t big enough to keep.

Sunday it was like someone flipped a switch and I was glad because it was tournament day. We went back to the same place I had marked the fish the day before. This time they bit and bit very well.

Trolling crankbaits was the ticket Sunday. I was fortunate to have a great tournament partner, Craig Francis. He is a trolling machine.

We weighed in 13.22 pounds which was enough for the win. This was Craig’s first win and I was very happy to be part of it.

If you want to get out on Oneida Lake walleye fishing give me a call. Dates are starting to fill up so don’t wait.
