About Us

30 Years of Fishing Lake Hartwell

Brian is a Lake Harwell Native who has been fishing Lake Hartwell all his life. From the beginning when he sat on the banks of what he calls his lake, he has always had a heart and desire to fish. Now as a Professional Guide and one who works solely in the Outdoor Industry he along with all his staff of guides all have a vast knowledge and warm personality for guide fishing. If you’re not having fun on one of our boats we would be very disappointed as we live to put people on fish. Laughter is a key ingredient in our boats and we feel that it’s just as important as the fish that are caught during the trip. Brian and his team of guides have a desire to mentor and make an impact on those who we have the privilege to fish. As 30 year veterans of Lake Hartwell it’s our desire to provide you the trip you desire. We specializes in catching monster and world class Stripers and hybrids and can customize any trip just for you. We furnish all new and up-to-date state of the art equipment for your enjoyment and safety. Just bring what you want to eat and drink for the day and we will provide everything else.
