Capt. Harvey grew up on Lake Somerville, so it's safe to say that he knows it like the back of his hand! As well as this, he was raised in a family of fishing fanatics, and soon developed his own love for angling. He's been guiding on Lake Somerville since 2001, and knows the hottest spots to target for a huge variety of incredible freshwater fish. He's landed some seriously impressive catches, too, including 58" bull Redfish, and 32" Hybrid Striped Bass. In

Trolling and fishing with rod and reel
