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.

Oneida Lake Fishing Report 9/1/21

Walleye fishing on Oneida Lake has been up and down. The Lake level is finally getting back to normal but our weather has been inconsistent. Steady weather patterns are always better than weather that is constantly changing.

That being said we are still getting fish. Trolling and covering a lot of water has been the trick to putting walleye in the net. Our fish have been in 35 to 40 feet of water 20 to 40 feet down.

The fall provides some of the best walleye fishing of the year. If you want in on the action give me a call to book a trip today.

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.

Oneida Lake Fishing Report 11/7/20

Today’s trip was a last minute booking. This time of year that is more than acceptable as the weather can be unpredictable. Victor wanted to get his 2 kids out fishing on this gorgeous day.

Taking kids fishing is something I strongly support. Matthew and Avenir we nothing but smiles all day. At the end of their four hour charter they had a boat limit to take home and many more released to filet another day.

Oneida Lake walleye fishing has been very consistent this year. This fall it has been nothing short of amazing most days. I will be fishing until the snow flies so if you want to get out on the water give me a call.

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.

Fun Weekend Fishing Oneida Lake

I had an absolute blast this weekend with my Oneida Lake fishing charters. One was with new customers and one trip was with a regular of mine.

Saturday I took out 10 year old Harrow, his father Cory, and his uncle Andy. All Harrow wanted for his birthday was to go fishing and catch lots of fish so that was what we did.

We started out in the morning with temps in the 30s. The air might have been cold but the fishing was hot. It didn’t take long to put a limit in the boat with Harrow catching the 3 largest of the day. Many more were caught and released to filet another day.

Sunday my man Clarance was back in town. This time he brought along his mother Jonnie and his grandfather Alby. It was great to she Clarance get his grandfather out for a day of fishing.

Sunday’s bite was not as hot as Saturday’s. That being said it didn’t stop these three from boating a limit of fish.

I still have some fall dates available and expect the fishing to be nothing short of great the rest of the open water season. Give me a call to get in on the action.

Oneida Lake Fishing Report 9/12/20

Saturday I had Jim and his old Navy buddy Randy on the boat. Randy was in town visiting from Washington. Oneida Lake was angry due to a stiff east wind. We were all glad to be riding in my Ranger boat.

The walleye kept Jim and Randy plenty busy all morning. It wasn’t the fast and furious fishing we have seen in the last couple trips but it was steady. You can’t complain about steady fish hitting the net.

At the end of the day they brought a nice limit back to the dock and plenty more were released to filet another day. I have more fall dates open if you want your own limit to take home.

Oneida Lake fishing is still HOT HOT HOT

There are some reports of the fishing slowing down as we move into fall. We have not seen that at all. In fact the walleye fishing on Oneida Lake has been as hot all summer.

Saturday the weather wasn’t the best but Fred, Kelly, and Callahan were with me on the lake. We got the trip in with just a short burst of rain and found gold at the end of the rainbow.

Fred and Kelly fished with me last month and absolutely crushed the walleye. This time was a carbon copy of the last. We quickly put a boat limit in the livewell and released many more.

If you want to get in on this amazing fishery and put some delicious fillets in your freezer give me a call. I have open dates and will be fishing until the snow flies.
