About Us

We are a fully licensed & insured Charter Fishing Boat targeting Lake Trout, Rainbow and Brown Trout as well as Atlantic Salmon, on Cayuga Lake. Our new StarCraft Titan 186 is docked at Taughannock Falls State Park.

We specialize in jig-fishing, which allows the angler to enjoy the battle of these fish, unencumbered by heavy weights or trolling gear.

The Big Spoon II can also make stops at many beautiful wineries and restaurants along the shoreline of Cayuga Lake if requests are made ahead of time!

Experienced fishermen, kids and adult newbies alike are welcome! Our friendly and knowledgeable Captain will teach you the basics and ensure a fun time is had by all.


Our season runs from May to October and all trips are weather dependent as determined by the Captain.

We offer 5-hour trips for 2 anglers at a rate of $450. An additional angler can be accommodated for $50 extra.

Starting in 2023 we are also offering a 3-hour trip at a rate of $350 for 2 anglers, and an additional angler for $400.

Customizable trips may be able to be accommodated. Reach out to the Big Spoon crew via the message board below for additional information and to check availability.

*Gratuity not reflected in rates. Tips are not expected, but appreciated.

Preparing For Your Trip

Pack your own lunch and drinks, there is space for a small cooler on board! We can also budget in time for lunch at a winery or restaurant that has a dock near the fishing grounds, ask the crew in your message below if interested!

We promote a catch & release fishery in order to sustain our great resource for years to come, however, anglers are entitled to keep up to 5 fish per day. Plan to bring a large cooler if you intend to bring your catch home!

Each member of the group must have a valid NY State fishing license. License can be purchased online at http://www.dec.ny.gov
