Red Beard's Cayuga Lake Ice Out

Hoping to cast a line in Ithaca? Then Red Beard’s Finger Lakes Charters has a trip with your name on it! With Captain Stanley at the helm, you’ll have a knowledgeable and experienced guide.

Around here it’s common to catch Yellow Perch, Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Northern Pike, and more if you come at the right time of year. On these trips, you can expect to troll using light tackle.

You’ll step aboard a 16’ Starcraft aluminum fishing boat with room for 2 passengers. It has planer boards, downriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Rods, reels, and tackle are ready for you, as well as lures. Live bait is available.

Before coming aboard, it will be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect. It’s always wise to bring bottled water, sunglasses, and sunblock (non-spray). Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just be sure to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

I have been an avid fisherman on the water of NY since my early childhood. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of what I've learned over the years on the amazing fisheries New York has to offer, and that's what drove me to become a USCG captain and a NY state fishing guide.
