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!

Captain Dave Wilson's Fishing Charters

The technique used to target the Walleye's on Lake Oneida is jigging and we had a boat custom built to do just that. The Dwight Owen, named after my grandfather, is a custom built Judge 27cc. It has 23 foot of deck space, 9 feet wide with a 12 degree dead rise. Its powered by a 300 Suzuki with a top speed of 42 mph. This gives us a very stable platform and the ability to move to different areas of the lake quickly. All tackle is stored in tackle lockers and under the gunnels, so casting is not an issue. All fishing tackle is provided for.
