The boat you’ll be using is an 18’ G3 aluminum fishing boat that can sit up to 2 guests. It runs on a 80 HP Yamaha jet engine and uses GPS technology, a fishfinder, as well as an emergency radio.

The lovely species you can chase on your trip include Catfish, Striped Bass, Carp, and Muskellunge.

If you plan on keeping what you catch please bring a cooler with ice.  We release all big fish.  Also, smoking and alcohol aren’t allowed during the trip.

Captain Billy takes care of all the needed rods, reels, and tackle. You should bring some food and drinks as well as your Tennessee fishing licenses.

These bountiful freshwater grounds are waiting for you, come aboard and have a great day of fishing in Tennessee!
