Posts Tagged ‘Fishing Guide Oneida Lake’

This afternoon I had the pleasure of taking Ken and Gerry out on Onieda Lake walleye fishing. Ken won the trip I donated for the Redfield Fish and Game Club kids fishing derby raffle.

When we launched the boat it looked like it might be a little bumpy out in the deeper water. That turned out to be an understatement. When we got out to the area I wanted to fish we had 3 to 4 foot waves. We were there so we set up and trolled with them. I was hoping it was going to lay down but the waves coming over the back of the boat as we trolled didn’t give me much confidence. The marks on the fish finder gave me plenty of confidence we were going to catch fish though.

We finished one pass landing three keeper walleye. I gave them the choice of running back west and making another pass or giving it a try another afternoon. They decided it was time to head back to the dock and I didn’t blame them as the waves were not letting up and actually still building.

All things considered it was a good hour on Oneida Lake. Hopefully next time we will have calmer water. I have some date available for October walleye fishing before I put the boat away for the winter. Book them now as it’s also salmon season so dates are filling quickly.

When you ask people their favorite fresh water fish to eat the most likely answer will be walleye.  Known for their excellent table fair walleye are a highly sought after prize in upstate New York.  They can be caught numerous ways but trolling and jigging are by far the most popular.  Also normally the most productive.

One of the best walleye waters in the North East sits right here in Central New York. Oneida lake isn’t known for producing big walleyes but it is known for having a huge population of them. That being said the past few years we have seen an uptick in larger fish being caught.  I am not talking 10+ pound slobs we see come from the Great Lakes but nice 4 to 6 pound fish that will provide you will some nice fillets.  Oneida Lake also offers some great perch fishing.  It is not uncommon to catch perch in the 10 to 14 inch range will fishing for walleye. We call these bonus fish.

Starting May of 2019 Wayne-o’s Guide Service will be offering Oneida Lake walleye fishing trips. These trips will be trolling and/or jigging.   I have partnered with Mike Tankersly, Full Tank Charters, and Chris Yard, Irish Knots Sport fishing, to offer these trips.  Between myself, Mike, and Chris we should be able to get you on the water almost any day from May through November.  Each boat can accommodate 2 to 3 anglers.  These trips will typically be 6 hours and be priced between $400 and $550.

Call 315-529-3886 to set up a trip today.
