Locked With Lorensen – Cayuga & Otisco Lake

Locked with Lorensen is owned and operated by a local family man, Captain Ryan Lorensen, from the Oswego County area. He offers trips for any NYS freshwater species that you would like to target. There is no experience required to go on one of these trips and even if it’s your first time fishing, Ryan is confident that he can get you hooked up and having a good time.

You’ll be fishing on an 18’ Tracker Targa Deep V that accommodates up to 3 guests. This multispecies boat features navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a cooler.

Your guide Ryan is an expert when it comes to catching trophy Salmon and Trout out of the world-famous Salmon river throughout all of the fall and early spring. During late spring and throughout the summer he runs Charters on Oneida lake and the finger lakes to target Lake Trout, Atlantic Salmon, Tiger Musky, Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass, Yellow Perch, and many others.

Ryan also does guided ice fishing trips, but that’s a story for the winter.

All of the bait and tackle needed is covered by the captain. After the trip, he’ll also clean and fillet your catch if you request it prior to the day of the trip. You’ll need to prepare your fishing licenses and pack your food and drinks for the day.

If you have a certain trip, pricing concern, destination, or vision for your adventure just reach out and get ready to have some fun. Contact Locked With Lorensen and let’s get that trip of a lifetime booked!

    On these trips, we mainly fish Cayuga Lake jigging Lake Trout from the depths on very light tackle which makes it a ton of fun. These trips can be very action-packed and no experience is required to be successful. There are also Rainbows, Browns, and Atlantic Salmon to target as well. If jigging isn't your thing...no worries because we can also troll the lake using downriggers. If you have any specific questions please reach out and we will make your fishing dream a reality.

    On these trips, we target Tiger Musky on Otisco lake which is one of the captain's favorite fish to target. They are very aggressive and hard-fighting fish which makes them a blast to tangle with on any gear. The current state record is from Otisco lake which is the smallest of all the finger lakes and has high population of trophy Tigers for us to target. We often catch a few other species on these trips also. Don't hesitate to book your trip now and let's get you hooked up with this fish of a lifetime.

I have been fishing ever since I can remember as a kid and I have just always loved being outside and on the water as much as possible. I grew up chasing the next bite in every creek, river, or lake I could make it to. For me, it's not just about the catch. It's also about the experience of just being out there and being challenged. I really love how fishing can bring people together. I live for the moments when a client gets hooked up with their biggest fish ever and often times their first fish ever!
