    The Cumberland River is a world class Striped Bass fishery. Year after year she continues to produce massive fish! We fish the Cumberland River just south of the KY border (TN allows the use of Trout as bait) and when you use large Trout as bait we only target big Trophy Stripers!

    This year we have already had visitors from as far away as Florida, Maine, Minnesota, Wisconsin, California and many other far away States who made the trip to fish these world class waters of the Cumberland Plateau. I always enjoy having first time visitors on the boat and seeing their reaction to the beautiful Cumberland River area as well as their reaction to the spectacularly huge fish we catch!

    I hope to see you soon!
