We recently visited Oneida Lake in New York. While at Oneida Lake we took a fishing excursion with Scriba Fishing Charters. We are a middle-aged couple whose fishing experience amounts to drowning worms as kids and a couple trips out on Lake Erie charters. Our father and son captains, Chris and Christopher used a combination of experience and technology, navigating through heavy early morning fog, to locate the walleye we hoped to catch. Once on top of the fish, everything we needed was there for us. We were shown a fishing technique that was new to us but effective on a day when others on the lake were coming in with sparse catches. We ended up just one short of our limit and the fish were all nice size. Once back on shore, Christopher cleaned our fish for us. We had some for dinner as soon as we got home; not a bone to be found! I would recommend Sriba Fishing Charters to anyone interested in going fishing. Raw amateurs like us will have a great day with these patient and knowledgeable sportsmen. Experienced anglers won't find a more amicable pair to swap ideas and stories with.

Bob and I wanted to take a minute and thank you both for a great time Walleye fishing late fall. Their knowledge of the lake and fish habits were the best and you guys kept us movin until we found and caught our fish. Will never forget the sturgeon? hookup, was truly the biggest fish I ever hooked into in my life!! We'll be back!

Thanks Chris, we had a blast. We will be back! .... tell Jr. the cheeks were tasty!
Went out fishing with Chris Scriba and son and had a great trip. Great guys, know the lake and how to fish it. Would recommend 100%. Oct 2nd, 2013 , great weather, great time and a limit of walleye. My wife Polly caught the most and the largest. Christopher filleted them and Polly cooked them for the family. Thanks Chris, see you again soon.

Dear Chris Scriba,
Thank you for taking us fishing, on Oneida Lake, on July 2nd. It was so much fun. We think our Grandfather had more or just as much fun as we did. Thank you Grandpa. We ate some of the fish we caught that night and our parents, my sister, and I liked the fish. We thought it was very good. We hope to go fishing with you again sometime.

I had been wanting to go Walleye fishing on Oneida for a long time, I knew of other Charter Captains, but decided to call a local Bait and Tackle shop for their recommendation. They gave me one name, Scriba Fishing Charters. It was me and my father and we had a great time! We were able to catch our limit and have a awesome morning on Oneida Lake! Chris and Christopher are the complete package. They worked hard to keep us on the fish, but still made it fun. Look forward to my next fishing trip and would recommend them to anybody!
CHRIS & CHRIS,
Thank you for a GREAT experience even on an "OFF" day. You guys are true professionals even if you did throw your landing net overboard. From now on if I am going fishing on Oneida Lake, it will be with you. Now I have to figure out how many people I need to invite to help me eat these 8 walleyes.
Along with my father and brother, I recently went on a fishing excursion on Oneida Lake. Via an internet search, we got in touch with Captain Chris Scriba. I wanted to take a few moments to express our gratitude and what a wonderful experience we had. Captain Chris and his son (also Captain Chris) were an absolute pleasure to fish with. They were extremely knowledgeable. Throughout the day they continuously attempted to educate us about the lake, the habits of the Walleye, and different techniques to make sure we had a good catch. Captain Chris explained that his family had been established around Lake Oneida for over 200 years and this definitely showed. From the rods and reels, the vast variety of lures, and (of course) the boat, all of their equipment was state of the art and in great shape. We ended up catching our limits that day. I can honestly say that we would have had a great day even if we had not caught a single fish, thanks to our personable and amicable captains. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Scriba Fishing Charters. We look forward to fishing with them again soon.
I've been out fishing with Captain Chris Scriba on three different occasions and caught my limit on all three trips. He uses the most modern equipment and has vast knowledge of the whole lake. I would recommend Captain Scriba if you want to catch fish! P.S. Thank you for your business and continued referrals!
What a great fishing trip! When we arrived, Chris greeted us and explained a few things, then we were off! The fishing was great, we caught a few Walleyes, then went after the Perch. Chris located a school of hungry fish and it was non-stop action.

My brother Walt and I fished last week with Chris Scriba. We had a blast and Chris is a first rate guide. He was patient, knowledgeable and just a blast to be with. Being from New Jersey, we don't get to fish many fresh water lakes very often. Chris hooked us up, literally! We were on fish the whole time and he just made the trip memorable. Would highly recommend this charter service. Great guy as well as guide. Thanks again.

Thanks again for a great day on Oneida Lake (despite the cold and wind). You guys are true professionals who really care about your customers. You made us both feel comfortable on the water and taught us quite a bit on the technique required for Walleye fishing. Hopefully, we will be able to do this again next year.

Everything was great. I have fished Oneida before, but this time with someone who knows the lake like the back of his hand. We caught a couple Walleye, a couple Bass (one real nice one) and one giant - I mean giant catfish. The thing was huge. Seemed like it took forever to get it to the boat, at least 1/2 hour, all the while Chris was smiling and holding the landing net for me. A most memorable experience!
~ Dave Burton
Thanks again. We enjoyed the fishing trip. Nice work putting us onto the fish.
