    During a half-day Muskie trip, we’ll spend 4 hours chasing the hardest fish in fresh water. We’ll start out going over the basic skills if you’re not an avid Muskie fisherman. Even though it’s just a short trip we’ll still have a very good shot at a fish and seeing a few, my goal for the trip is for you and your party to learn as much as possible about these amazing fish. Questions are very welcome!

    On this trip we utilize big Skipjack Herring for Striped Bass, it’s a specialty technique that I’ve been using for over a decade and it has put thousands of big fish in the boat over the years. I catch bait the night before so we start off fishing at daylight.

If you plan on fishing in Lenoir City, look no further than Cody Daniels Guide Service.

Around here fishing is popular for Striped Bass, Muskellunge (Musky), and more if conditions allow. You’ll target your catch by light tackle fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Capt. Cody also offers fly fishing, but you may need to bring your own fly gear.

Capt. Cody welcomes children aboard, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. Snacks are also a good idea so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

You’ll be welcome aboard a 24’ Xpress bay boat that holds up to 5 passengers. It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures. Live bait is included, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

Before coming aboard, you will be required to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

It’s recommended to bring sunglasses, bottled water, and sunscreen (non-spray). If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

If you have any questions about fishing with Cody Daniels Guide Service, feel free to send Capt. Cody a message down below.

I’ve been on the water since before I could walk and I’ve always had a passion for big fish. Nothing brings me more joy than watching people catch the fish of a lifetime.
