The Captain

Bill Lortz has been fishing on Oneida Lake and the 1000 Islands region for over 20 years. I have been tournament bass fishing for the past 16 years on both the local and regional level. I was introduced to guiding by my uncle who ran a successful charter business on Lake Ontario. Through my years of being a first mate on his boat, I learned and experienced first hand the value of educating fisherman. Our goal at NY NORTHCOUNTRY BASSIN' is for you to not only catch fish but to learn.

My name is Bernie Hoyt (a.k.a.Bernie Bass). 


Growing up on the South Shore of Long Island I've always had a passion for fishing. My father introduced me to surfcasting the beaches of Fire Island. At a young age, my eyes were opened to the surfcasting capital of the world, Montauk. My appreciation of the sport led to a longtime member of the Long Island Beach Buggy Association and the Montauk Surfcasters Association. As an NYS Certified Fishing Guide, with over 30 years experience in the surf, I offer a variety of guided trips for all ages and skill levels. Trips are customized based on skill level and experience.  Day trips go to Long Island's outer beaches and inlets. Overnight trips are to Cape CodCuttyhunk Island, and other Striper Coast locations. In addition to the guided trips being offered, anglers can also register their group or organization for seminars to sharpen their techniques, strategies, and ability to read the water.

We offer year-round fully outfitted and guided fishing opportunities for all ages and skill levels.
