Dedicated Outdoors offers an exciting freshwater fishing adventure, targeting Bass and Catfish in and around Ellijay, Georgia. Explore the outstanding fishing opportunities North Georgia has to offer. Jonathan, the owner and operator of Dedicated Outdoors, will go above and beyond expectations to make your trip the adventure of a lifetime.

You will go out aboard a brand-new 25’ Wellcraft tournament center console, which comes powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine. Perfect for accommodating up to 8 guests, the boat is rigged with modern navigational electronics and safety equipment. The vessel is fitted with downriggers, along with a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride.

Your catch will stay fresh in an ice-box and a live well will be loaded with bait. For your maximum comfort, there is a toilet on board. Plus, the boat is fitted with LED lights, which is an awesome feature especially when you fish when it’s dark outside! Check the waters of Ellijay River, see what is biting on various lakes and creeks.

The crew has tailored a variety of half and full-day packages to suit your specific needs. When fishing for Striped and Hybrid Bass, the captain prefers to use down line, free line, and planer boards with live bait. Apart from those methods, you can troll with artificial bait and cast them as well at certain times of the year. You will target Spotted and Smallmouth Bass with both live and artificial bait and Catfish with live and cut bait.

A trip comes with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. The captain will offer snacks and drinks. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go home with you. Dedicate your time outdoors to some fantastic fishing!

Book a trip with Dedicated Outdoors and get ready to have a fantastic day on the water!

Looking back on my childhood and on into my adult life, I am very blessed that I can't remember a weekend or a week I wasn't fishing! By myself or with friends or my grandfather. It's something I was born into and something I look forward to passing on. I love the thrill, the challenge and the privilege to put folks on fish. If you fish with me I can guarantee I can and will do everything I know and love to put you on the fish!
