Slab Crappie

Just about anywhere it is stated "the best crappie fishing is in the Spring and Fall Seasons". However, this is not exactly true... Due to the clear deep cool water of the lake boasting 101 miles in length, 1255 miles of shoreline and 65,530 surface acres with an average depth of 90 feet, crappie in Lake Cumberland can be caught year round. That is, if you have the right guide to put you on fish!

WWP Fishing

The 3rd Saturday of each month has been dedicated as Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Fishing. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your charter as I have blocked out this time slot for our Warfighters.

Get Ready for the Fight of your Life!

Striper Fishing on Lake Cumberland is a great experience for all ages. Whether you are an avid fisherman, a weekend warrior, or new to sport fishing, there is one thing for sure, when a trophy striper strikes, it is like nothing you have ever experienced before from a fresh water fishery!  If you have dreamed about catching the big one, then you need to come experience this excitement first hand . You will be amazed and in awe as you see the explosion of a top water strike with a force that appears as though a cinder block was just thrown into the water from a second story building.  Your heart pounds with excitement as you listen in amazement to the sound of your reel screaming as 20 to 30 yards of line is stripped away in seconds. You stumble toward your pole in a trance like state as you attempt to grab... "Well, I think you are starting to get the picture!"

As you set the hook and the drag continues to run out and you have the feeling like there is a submarine attached to the end of your line, you had better get ready for the fight of a lifetime!  On average, a 5 to 10 minute fight is not uncommon when attempting to landing one of these babies!

If you are looking for this type of excitement and/or fishing enjoyment, then schedule a trip with us. You will be glad you did!

State of Kentucky Fishing License

Angler's need to have on their person a valid State of Kentucky fishing license that covers the date of their trip. It is best to purchase a fishing license at a minimum of a day prior to your trip since most local merchants are not open for business early in the morning when the bite is on. To avoid delays in your fishing adventure please ensure you have the appropriate resident/nonresident fishing license. For your convenience we have provided a link to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Online License site. Please click to purchase your license online now.
Note: You will need access to a printer in order to print your license online.
