Walleye season is finally here.

Well after what seemed like a long winter open water season is finally here. Opening week has not disappointed and it’s obvious Oneida is going to fish very well again this year.

The state changed the limit and you are now allowed to take 5 of these delicious fish home for dinner. I do clean your fish for you at the end of the trip as well.

Opening day I had a chance to fish with my long time friend Louie. We put a hurting on them fishing blade baits and jigs. This weekend I am have a charter and a tournament so look for an update on Monday.

If you want in on the action give me a call and let’s put some fish in the net and your freezer.

Deer season is my favorite

Now that deer season is open across the state, there are even less boats on the lake.

This is a great time of year to be out there. The walleyes are putting the feed bag on getting ready for winter and there is little fishing pressure.

Today was another great day walleye fishing on Oneida Lake and there are more great days to be had before it freezes. Call now to get in on the late fall action. I am also starting to book trips for 2022 so if you have dates you want it would be a good idea to get them locked in soon.

Oneida Lake Walleye Fishing 10-26-21

Not a lot to say other than the fishing has been very good. We have been putting limits in the boat each time out. Trolling has been on fire but jigging is producing fish as well.

Call today to set up a fall walleye fishing trip. This bite should last right up until the launch freezes over.

Weekend Report 5/25/21

I guess the title should be long weekend report as it is Tuesday. It was a busy four days for sure.

Saturday was a great start as we finished our trip with a boat limit. Sunday was another excellent day as Craig and I finished 2nd in the tournament.

Monday and Tuesday I was back on Oneida Lake with guests and they were all smiles. Both days ended with boat limits.

If you want to put some Oneida Lake Walleye in your freezer give me a call.

2021 opening weekend report

As always I spend opening weekend of walleye season fishing Oneida Lake.

Saturday the bite was tough for us. We found our fish shallow and put them in the boat using blade baits and jerk baits.

Sunday we decided to move out to deeper water. This turned out to be the right move. Not only did we put more fish in the boat but they were larger as well. Trolling stick baits was the ticket out deep.

The season is open and I have dates available if you want to get in on the action. Call soon if you are looking for certain dates as they are filling quickly.

Lake Erie Walleye Fishing

Last week some friends and I took a trip out to Lake Erie. Erie is probably the only place I like more than Oneida.

If you take the average Oneida fish and add 5 inches you have the average Lake Erie walleye. The catch rate is very close on both lakes. Some days on Erie we average more fish other less than what we do on Oneida Lake.

The biggest difference between the lakes is the wind. You don’t want to make the trip to Erie for just one day. If you plan for 5 days you hopefully will get to fish 3. When the wind blows Erie gets very mean.

As for the taste I can’t compare as I have never ate a walleye out of Lake Erie.

Oneida Lake Fishing Report 11/6/20

Yesterday’s trip was 5 guys so that meant two boats. Mike, Mike Jr. and shamus went with me while Bill and Glen were second boat.

We started off trolling. The bite was exceptional so we were very picky about what went in the livewell. After 2 passes we moved to try jigging up a few.

The jigging bite was good but nothing like the trolling bite. Overall it was a great day on Oneida Lake putting fish in the boat with every technique we tried. We ended the day with 2 boat limits of Oneida gold in the livewells.

I am still fishing and open for trips. The bite doesn’t get much better than it is right now. Give me a call to get in on the action while we still have nice weather.

All good things must come to an end…just not yet

They say all good things come to an end. Unfortunately this unbelievable walleye season will be coming to an end here in the future.

I am still running trips until the snow flies. The fall bite has been very good as usual. The weather this time of year is unpredictable so appropriate clothing is a must. You want to dress in layers to make sure you stay warm.

All that being said I welcome last minute bookings this time of year. If you want to set something up tentatively based on weather I will gladly work with you to ensure an enjoyable day on the water.

I anticipate a great bite through the remaining open water season. Gibe me a call to set up a great day on the water. I have included some pictures from my recent fall trips.

Oneida Lake Walleye Fishing Report 8/5/20

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.

Oneida Lake walleye fishing

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.
