Launching out of Rutledge, Tennessee, Cherokee Lake Fishing Charter is offering fun-packed fishing trips on the bountiful Cherokee Lake. Just 20 miles from both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg TN, this charter offers you a great way to spend a day in nature during your vacation in the beautiful Smokey Mountains. Your guide, Ryan has spent 25 years fishing these waters. He and Jessie, another guide Ryan occasionally works with, will do everything they can to put you on the catch of your dreams.
You’ll spend the trip fishing from a 2019, 23’ Sunchaser Pontoon boat, powered by a 150 HP Honda outboard. Pontoon boats are a great choice for families and groups of anglers wanting to fish without having to sacrifice comfort. The boat provides a highly stable fishing platform and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers, who can all fish at the same time. It’s equipped with all the latest electronics and safety equipment including a GPS and a fishfinder as well as a trolling motor, allowing you to get better casting positions in those skinny waters.
The guide will equip you with all the fishing gear you need for the species you’re targeting, including Ugly Stik and Okuma rods and reels. Depending on your choice of targets you can expect to try out several fishing techniques such as trolling, bottom fishing, as well as light and heavy tackle casting. The species you can target on your trips include Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass, and Catfish. You’ll also be provided with live bait that the captain will prepare ahead of the trip to maximize the amount of action you see – so come prepared!
The things you should remember to bring are any drinks and snacks you’d like, a valid fishing license (can be bought online), and sunglasses. After that, you’re ready to come to the lake and start reeling in fish!
