4 hour trip. Many days, limits come quick and early. A half day allows anglers to get a good chance at their limit, and the ability to spend the 2nd half of the day in DIY mode.


Spring Walleye Charters

 

May NIGHT Walleye Charters - 6 hour charter - $200 per person,(3 or more people , $175 per person) 
May is when we target these " EYES " in the Oswego River , Black River and Henderson Harbor by trolling stick baits at night in the driftboats or in our charter boats .  May is generally a trolling game or casting stickbaits at night !! This is generally when we see our larger walleyes hit the boat ,4 to 8 pound averages with the larger trophies topping the scales over 10 pounds !!!   This is a "quality" not "Quantity" time of year .


June Oneida Lake Walleye Charters - 6 hour charter - $525 per day (Rate is based on group of up to 3 people)

June is when we switch gears and move south to the famous Oneida Lake !!  We jig great quality walleyes right off the boat with light action spinning gear !  This trip is a definite "hands on " approach to walleye fishing for sure .  Oneida boasts a very diverse fishery and there's a lot more than walleyes swimming in there !    Walleye , Monster smallmouth bass, perch, carp, freshwater drum and catfish can all be had in one day !
