The eastern basin is known as the “Bass Fishing Capital” of Lake Ontario! The islands, harbors and bays near Henderson Harbor have ALWAYS offered the finest in Bass fishing. Bass fishing greats like the legendary “Cotten Cordell” thought the Bass fishing in Henderson was “The Best in the United States”!
Doug Nieman (L) and Rick Eichler (R) know 1st hand about catching Big Bass. Doug’s fish was taken in the Back Bay’s while fishing Pike and Walleye (it was released). Rick’s fish came on the backside of Galloo island. Five of the fish from Rick’s trip broke the 5 lb. mark!
Capt. George Kogut and Capt. Bill Saiff III led these lucky anglers to a mixed catch of Smallmouth Bass and Brown Trout! It’s not uncommon to encounter these two fish species in similar waters!
