No matter what time of year the Rochester region is a treasure for serious anglers.
Bayside has experts on staff to assist clients with selecting the right equipment, lures, bait and tackle for local fishing in any conditions. The region hosts some of the best fall/winter steelhead and brown trout fishing. Each year King salmon (Captain Ken has a secret sauce for eggs) are caught in the 35-40 plus pound range, as well there are good runs of Coho salmon. The winter fishing on the bay is great. Anglers catch large and smallmouth bass, big pike, perch and more. The remodeled store carries a full line of lures, live bait, fishing supplies and rentals; everything the avid angler needs for a day on the water (or ice).
Bay Side provides fishing charters on Lake Ontario, drift boat river trips up the Genesee River and guided trips (from Buffalo to the Salmon River) for Salmon, Steelhead and Brown Trout. Customers can join a Party boat for Bass, Walleye, Perch and Pike. Once the ice is firm Bayside will stay open to provide rentals for Ice Fishing.
LCF even has a condo on Lake Ontario by the Genesee River for out-of-town clients (Up to 4) to rent while on their expedition.
Members receive special pricing on everything in the store including charters and rental packages on boats.
“We have created a country club atmosphere for our members with a flat screen TV and wood burning stove to enjoy at our members only events,” adds owner and Captain Ken Strimple.
Members of the Pro-staff specialize in fly, center-pin, spinning and noodle rod techniques and Bayside stocks all the equipment required to master these specialty techniques. If they don’t have something in stock, they can and will get whatever shoppers are looking for with their buyers service.
Bayside is the Nissan and Tohatsu Dealer for the Rochester area for outboard motors, parts and repairs. Bayside can also shrink wrap boats, winterize motors and even can store boats on their premises.
