Fishing the Finger Lakes Guide and Charter Service

Specializing in bass fishing on the Finger Lakes

A native of the Finger Lakes Region, I have over 35 years experience fishing the Finger Lakes. For the past thirty years I have fished competitive tournaments, earning numerous top place finishes. When you hire me, you'll get a guide who knows the water, where the fish are located, and how to catch them. We have three lakes to chose from, and it would be my pleasure to share which of the lakes are doing better at any particular time.

You will enjoy fishing for both large mouth and small mouth bass on a fully rigged bass boat while learning the many techniques used in catching them.

The Lakes

Keuka Lake

One of the jewels of the Finger Lakes.. You can not go wrong in choosing this body of water. Keuka offers both superb small mouth and large mouth bass fishing. It has some of the largest bass in the region swimming in it. The fishing picks up in late spring and remains very good throughout the summer months and into the fall. This Lake, also, offers fantastic live bait fishing for small mouths in the summer months. A huge plus when inexperienced anglers or children are involved.

Seneca Lake

The deepest of the Finger Lakes. Seneca is a large lake that runs from Watkins Glen to Geneva. It produces large numbers of small mouth in the summer months, but the fish run somewhat smaller than the bass in the other lakes. Here the average fish weighs around 2 pounds with an occasional 4 pound fish caught. This lake also offers excellent northern pike fishing.
