With just two weeks until the walleye opener, things are beginning to take shape across Oneida Lake. Fishing access is ready with docks at the free South Shore Launch. Access at Oneida Shores should be ready at some point in the next week. Docks are not in yet at Godfrey Point and word is the buoy barge is in the area to place navigation aids in the near future.
This is direct from the Walleye Wednesday crew:
We will be posting all the updates this weekend for the 2021 Walleye Wednesday Schedule.
We have decided to shorten the season to 10 weeks.
We will start on May 5 and the last Walleye Wednesday will be July 7th with the tournament being July 10th and 11th.
Anyone wishing to use the Walleye Wednesdays point system to compete and qualify for the Head 2 Head regional tournament needs to visit their page, sign up with a 40-100 membership to H2H.
The team fee is 20.00 and includes your sub fees.
Teams cannot split to fish with other teams nor for the tournament.
As in the past, the end time for the night is when the clock hits 8:30.00. Or 8:45.00, or 9:00.00 pm. Off plane at the docks. Late is late and a disqualification.
A Child under 16 would be allowed to go out and experience Walleye Wednesdays with you should you choose. Honor system for required lines and only competitors fishing if rod in hand.
Points will remain the same as last year.
Payouts have been updated to 1/5.
The end time for 5/5 is 8:30.
