Norris Striper Fishing

With Norris Striper Fishing, you will be able to target true Atlantic Strain Striped Bass in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Captain Mark Meyer will take you exploring the wonderful waters of Norris Lake in comfort and style of a big boat.

The vessel is a 24’ pontoon, custom-built in 2016. It has plenty of fishing and seating space, along with shade to hide from the sun or rain. The pontoon can comfortably accommodate up to 3 anglers of all ages and skill levels.

This spacious vessel comes powered by a 48 HP Evinrude engine and can cruise the waters with no rush. It is equipped with a fishfinder to build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding and aid your search for a big Striper. The pontoon also features all the necessary safety equipment, a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, an icebox for the refreshments, and a live well loaded with bait.

Join Norris Striper Fishing, sit back, and relax until you reach your fishing grounds. You will be targeting Striped Bass with light tackle, which will be supplied by the captain. All trips include the use of quality rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures. You’ll be releasing the fish you catch but you’re more than welcome to take photos first.

You will need to bring a valid fishing license and your food and drinks.
