5 Star Experience

"Our family had a fantastic time with Karl with Eye Catching Charters. We came back with loads of fish, and walked away with close to 6lbs of meat. Karl was super knowledgeable and a great guide. We don’t fish very often, especially to this degree, but Karl helped make the trip fit our experience level (or lack thereof) and we learned a ton along the way. Would highly recommend. Will definitely charter with him again."

"Carl knows his stuff and how to catch fish on Oneida lake. He has a fully equipped boat with state of the art equipment, has a lot of knowledge about the lake and catching walleyes. We had our limit in 4 hours and all had a good time. You can't go wrong booking a charter with him. He knows how to find the fish and how to catch them. He does everything possible to make your experience the best."

"Karl took me and a few guys out for a day of fishing. Me being from Texas I didnt know what to expect but Karl blew my expectations out of the water. Super knowledgeable and helpful with everything from explaining water depths equipment to the bait we used . He cleaned the fish better than anyone I've ever seen in my life and I will definitely fish with Karl again. Best fresh water fishing I've had in years thanks for a great time Karl."

"Captain Karl was outstanding throughout our trip. His knowledge of Oneida Lake was extraordinary and his attention to detail to please us was superb from catching walleye to filleting our fish. Besides all that, he's a great guy for an interesting conversation! Eye Catching Charters is your best choice for a great experience fishing on the lake."
