About Mickey’s

Hello and welcome to the Fishing CNY website sponsored by Mickey’s Bait & Tackle. Since around 1945, Mickey’s has been a longstanding tradition in the Central New York fishing community.

Located at 715 S Bay Road in North Syracuse, NY, Mickey’s caters primarily to the Oneida Lake fisheries. Oneida lake is the largest inland freshwater lake in New York State noted for it’s excellent Walleye, Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass populations. Central New York is rich with other fishing opportunities also, such as the Finger Lakes, Lake Ontario salmon fisheries and the beautiful Adirondack Mountain lakes in northern New York.

In an era of mega-retailers and category killer stores, the bait shop stands alone as a place where friendly service and a home style atmosphere have survived. When someone asks us,“Where they bitin”, we don’t reply, “In aisle 4”. Where else can you go “smell the bait”, hear the whirl of aerators and listen to smelly old fisherman spit out tales of yesteryear. Going to a Bait shop is truly an interactive experience and is synonymous to fishing as computers are to the World Wide Web.

Here at Mickey’s, not only is our service and knowledge a credit to our success, we offer products that are not available in the “big places”. Highly specialized items that catch fish, not fisherman. There is a full line of fly tying materials and fly fishing rods and fly reels. Fishing rod building parts such as fishing rod repair on guides and handles is done professionally.  We are so confident in these products that some lures like bucktail jigs and worm harnesses are made exclusively for Mickey’s and can not be found on the internet, offered only to folks like you around the country on a satisfaction guaranteed basis.

If you like to fish and are looking for products that will help you catch more fish, I’m sure you will find something for yourself at our Baitshopbros Ebay Site. If you know others who like to fish please tell them about this site. You may want to keep Mickey’s in your favorite places as we will be adding new information and services in the future. On behalf of my brothers and I, we would like to thank you for stoppin by.

  1. I’ll have to check out your business one of these days! I used to go fishing with my grandpa when I was a kid. Haven’t been since, but I have good memories associated with the hobby.

    • The staff at Mickey’s is always friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. The fly tying and fly fishing gear available is very impressive, this is not just a bait and spin cast fishing store. They also continue to give back to the community in various ways by helping organizations such as Trout Unlimited. Be sure to stop by to see them for your fishing needs, you will be pleasantly surprised with their style of customer service, which is not available in your big box stores. Support this great organization; I shudder to think of the void created if we lose this great institution.
