    Greetings to all my readers!

    The Lake Cumberland Striper fishing is “red hot” right now. We are catching solid limits on most days with good numbers of large fish in excess of 3 feet long (36 inches) with the occasional 40 inch plus fish as well! Just a fabulous beginning to the year!

    The Cumberland River down in TN is red hot as well! Come catch a world class river monster (largest this year 53 pounds)!

    I will have a formal report with tactics and details posted in a few days – hang in there! In the interim, enjoy the photos below of just a few of the limits and huge Stripers being caught!

    With a large group rescheduling, I actually also have a couple of boats available for this coming weekend April 9th and 10th. If you want to get in on this “red hot” Striper fishing you can call me at 931-403-2501 or click the link below:


    We hope to see you soon!

    Late Spring Fishing Roundup Kentucky Afield

    Kentuckians cannot complain about a lack of rain this past spring. It seemed to rain every other day in March and April.
    It is a mild miracle the horses running in the recent Kentucky Derby did not sink up to their knees while standing in the starting gate. The 2.31 inches... read more
