    Specializing in “Trophy” Fishing, Captain Jim Durham owner of StriperFun Guide Service runs one of the largest fishing guide services in Kentucky and Tennessee with over 10 guides to service StriperFun’s vast clientele! StriperFun Guide Service is adding Percy Priest and Tims Ford Lakes to current fishing charter locations on Lake Cumberland, the Cumberland River, Cherokee Lake, Watts Bar Lake, Norris Lake and the Clinch River!

    Captain Jim is a licensed guide who has fished Kentucky and Tennessee for most of his adult life. As a former B.A.S.S. tournament circuit fisherman, Captain Jim is also a Search and Rescue Officer with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Captain of his local Volunteer Fire Department as well as a U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Marine Captain. You can trust that StriperFun clients will have a safe and fun trip!

    Captain Jim charters out of a 24-foot center console Alweld Escort Bay boat. Powered by Mercury 150 four (4) stroke outboard, she is quiet to sneak up on big fish and fast to cover a lot of water! With 24-mile radar, full Humminbird electronics and a Minn Kota trolling motor, this rig is the ultimate guide boat!



    Said Captain Jim:

    “As StriperFun continues to expand our services on more and more of the beautiful waters in Tennessee, it was only logical that Percy Priest and Tims Ford Lakes were to be our next destinations. The Striper and Hybrid fishing on Percy Priest and Tims Ford Lake is terrific! My guides and I have over 30 years’ combined experience fishing these waters and I welcome all my clients from our many years guiding on Lake Cumberland (and all the other waters where we provide fishing charters) to visit Percy Priest and Tims Ford Lake and enjoy the splendor and tremendous fishing they have to offer!

    We use only the freshest live bait, as well as a variety of artificial lures we troll to target suspended schools of fish.

    The Winter bite on Percy Priest and Tims Ford Lake is simply terrific! We are currently catching 20 to 30 fish a day! Tennessee allows catch and release!

    Licensed and insured, Captain Jim’s StriperFun Guide Service can take you on a safe, fun and unforgettable fishing trip to catch a "Trophy" of a lifetime! Check out StriperFun Guide Service sat:www.striperfun.comor call 931-403-2501 to make fishing reservations.
