2023 Rates

Unfortunately, with the cost of everything still on the rise, I have no choice but to raise my rates for 2023. I have been debating this for months and decided to raise them by only $50.

I am trying my best to keep my prices fair and affordable for everyone. If you shop around you will find I am not the cheapest but also not the most expensive. The best part is if you book with a deposit before May 1st, you can lock in your trip at the 2022 rate. You can also buy a gift certificate now at the 2022 rate and choose the date of your trip later on.

The 2022 Fall Bite Is Here

The fall is one of the best times to fish Oneida Lake. The lake fishes well all season but when the fall comes the walleyes put on the feed bag in preparation for winter. This time of year trolling crankbaits produces a lot of action most days.

It is safe to say the fall bite is here and will only continue to get better as the cooler weather arrives. I will be running trips until the snow flies. If you want to get in on the action give me a call as soon as possible. Dates are filling fast as this is the prime time to put some fish in the freezer.

Oneida Lake Walleye Fishing 8/1/22

I have been busy running trips most days of the week. The only thing consistent has been the early bite. Getting on the water first thing has been critical.

Each day the bite has been different but every day it has been best early. Many days we are putting fish in the boat trolling then finishing the day jigging. Other days the trolling bite has been good enough to put a limit in the boat.

Limits aren’t hitting the net every trip but plenty of fish are. Some days the bite us really good and we limit early. Other days it has been tougher and we fish hard to get as many as possible during our time on the water.

This year’s theme has been teaching. Many of my trips have been people looking to learn. I am always willing to share my knowledge and help fellow anglers.

If you want to learn or just want to go catch a bunch of fish give me a call to get in on the action. I will be running trips until the snow flies.

Oneida Lake Walleye Fishing Report 6-23-22

Walleye fishing on Oneida Lake has been good. We are getting fish trolling and jigging. Each day one produces better than the other but most days both have produced.

Fishing is not lights out constant limits but it has been steady. Some days we have struggled but still put fish in the boat. Other days the fishing has been nothing short of fantastic.

If you want to get in on the action give me a call and I’ll get you on the water. If there is a technique you are looking to learn let me know. I am always willing to teach anglers during the trip.

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.
