Mel's Striper Guide Service Striped Bass Fishing On Norris Lake

Mel's Striper Guide Service Guided Fishing Trips On Norris Lake

Mel's Striper Guide Service striped bass fishing charters lasts about 8 hours, depending on catch and your preferences.


I don't end your trip early when you catch your limit, you can release all the healthy fish you want, obviously we cannot release mortally wounded fish.


While I encourage catch and release the choice is yours as to whether or not to keep your fish.


If you chose to keep your catch I will clean and package it for you.


I will have bait and gear, boat(s) rods, reels, tackle, everything you will need for a successful fishing trip ready for you when you arrive.


The boat will be equipped with the most practical, well maintained and modern fishing tackle, electronics, safety equipment and creature comforts. The list here could go on and on but I'll spare you the details.


I encourage you to bring a camera, but I will also take photos as my workload permits (many times I am to busy baiting hooks and releasing fish). These will be available to you as well.


I also video many of my trips and will be happy to send you a copy.


As a striper guide, I target striped bass but we often catch other predator fish such as walleye, large and small mouth bass, and catfish. These fish do not count toward your limit of striper, you may keep these as well.
