StriperXtreme

StriperXtreme is freshwater fishing charter run by Captain Bobby Crabtree during the entire year. This part of Eastern Tennessee is located near noteworthy places such as Pigeon Forge, the Great Smoky Mountains, Dollywood, and Gatlinburg, which means it can be loads of fun for the whole family.

Bobby’s boat is a 21’ Sea Pro center console that’s powered by a single 250 HP Mercury engine. It’s got all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a safe and productive day on the water, with enough room for up to four prospective anglers. It’s got a livewell for bait, as well as a wireless trolling motor for when you need to run silent.

If you have never fought a Striped Bass or Hybrid on Cherokee Lake, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. It is the strongest freshwater fish by far and great table fare as well. Bobby makes sure to follow Bass migration patterns, and always knows the best option for getting you on the fish quickly.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle come included in the price of the trip. All you need to do is bring a valid fishing license, as well as a pair of sunglasses and some sunscreen. Feel free to pack drinks and snacks too if you’re so inclined. You’re sure to have a memorable experience with Captain Bobby and StriperXtreme.

Fishing is my true passion, I spend most of my days on the water and follow the migration patterns of Striped Bass. I really enjoy helping kids and watching people of all ages catch their first trophy fish. I fish mainly live bait but will use any means necessary to put fish in the boat, including downriggers, planner boards, umbrella rigs, and artificials. I am a licensed Captain through the US Coast Guard. I can launch from either Bean Station TN or Jefferson City TN.
