Crazy Yankee Sportfishing Captain Richard Hajecki
Phone 585-704-7996
Don't those "Pro's" on TV look like they are having a blast? Well, they are and you can too! New York's lakes and rivers provide some of the best bass and walleye fishing in the country and even those "Pro's" will agree. We have some of the most fertile lakes around and the bass and walleye just thrive in them. I generally will guide from Oneida Lake to Lake Erie chasing both walleye, Largemouth, and Smallmouth bass. If its a Trophy Largemouth your after then Conesus and Honeyoye are your best chances. Want to catch a bruiser Smallmouth or monster walleye? Then we need to turn our attention to Oneida Lake or Lake Erie!
