Guide Service

My experience, knowledge, and love for fishing ensure that you have the best chance to land your trophy fish on Lake Jocassee. As Summer approaches and the Trout begin to school around the Lake, competition in the thermocline make the trophies easy targets. May through October produce the biggest and the most fish of the Year. During these hot days of summer, with the fish holding in deep water, offshore expert knowledge of how to run downriggers in the strike zone is deadly. Early mornings on Jocassee can produce the phenomenal catches the Lake is famous for. With this knowledge, I strive to make your trip to South Carolina's famed Lake Jocassee memorable, not only with the fish we catch, but scenery and wildlife. Deer and Bear swimming the lake, and Bald Eagles soaring overhead, looking to catch a meal for themselves are just a few of Jocassee's sites.

From serious anglers to weekend fishermen, to Mom's and Dad's hoping to see their child land their first trout, count on me to provide your best opportunity to catch a trophy fish and experience Lake Jocassee this Season. Book your trip now and secure the best date for a Jocassee Trophy.
