Bass are the most popular game fish in the United States, and Otsego Lake, NY is one of the best bass fishing lakes in the State. Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn more about one of the fastest growing sports in the country, a bass fishing enthusiast, or you just want to get out on the water, we can offer you a great trip.
I fish from a 2014, Nitro Z7 bass boat. I specialize in largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing with artificial lures. In addition, I offer panfish trips (for perch, bluegills, rock bass) using live bait. This is a great way to introduce kids to fishing, with plenty of action. Please explore my web site and contact me with any questions you may have, or to request a reservation.

The 2019 season has been great, but now I'm back to my "day job" as a college professor, so can't take any new reservations for this year. If you already have a reservation I look forward to seeing you. Otherwise, check back in the spring. I start fishing in early May.
I specialize in bass fishing with artificial lures, but can offer a variety of trips for one or two people.
NOTE: I encourage "catch and release" fishing. There's nothing wrong with keeping an occasional fish to eat, but more than 90% of the fish shown on this website were released unharmed.
Check out a couple of videos; fishing with Craig and Kris Norris, on July 6 of this year (thanks, Craig), and some aerial views of the lake courtesy of Bill Vining and his drone.
