Fall Bass Fishing on Lake Anna

 I love this time of year. Schools of bait fish head towards creek tributaries and the bucket mouths aren't far behind. Pete is an experienced finesse fisherman with exceptional casting skills... His casting skills really paid of during this trip... Fish were holding very close to cover, making it very important to "hit the target" as gracefully as possible. It's incredible that the lunker on the left actually made it into the boat. It wrapped itself around logs, went airborne a couple of times etc. One of the most exciting catches all year! Call 540-287-3591 to catch a lunker of your own!

Striped Bass Fish Fry


This trip was all about dinner and good friends! We went out for about 4 hours in the evening and loaded up on fillets for the fryer. The company was great, both ladies have been friends for years. I'm looking forward to getting on the water with them again this fall. Call 540-287-3591 to book your next outing.

Back to School Fishing

This is my 10 year old son Evan... We went out for the evening to catch a few crappie. There were still a lot of fish in deeper water schooling around channel edges etc. But the signs were obvious that schools of slabs are headed for shallower brush and rocks.  If you can find the time in the next month to get away for a few hours, this is a great time to load up on 50, even 100 crappie in one trip. Crappie focused fishing trips are also great for kids that are new to fishing. The action is steady, keeping kids interested and entertained throughout the day. Give me a call @ 540-287-3591 to book a trip or learn more.

Late Summer Striper Fishing on Lake Anna

Lake Anna Striper Fishing - September
Outstanding late summer weather, very few other boats on the water, and good fishing is what you can expect on Lake Anna this time of year.  We brought several small and keeper sized fish to the boat this evening but this big boy anchored the stringer for sure.  Predictable topwater patterns are beginning to emerge for both bass and stripers creating excellent light tackle opportunities.  As late summer runs into fall look for the fishing to only get better.  Large weather fronts will change things for a day or two but this is an outstanding time of year to be on the water.  Every day brings new opportunity to find large fish (especially crappie) coming out of deep water to fatten up for colder conditions. Don't miss out on the fall feed - call Taylor @ 540.842.9155 to book your trip today!

Double up! Father and Son Fishing Trip


Last night was a blast...  Low boat traffic & mild weather is making evening trips even more relaxing than they have been all summer. The bites came in clusters... We would fish for a little while with nothing, then all of the sudden WHAM 3 fish at once! The water temps are down below 80 degrees in some areas and the fish are responding appropriately. Look for some incredible stringers of  Largemouth, Crappie, and Striped Bass in the upcoming weeks. Call Charlie Bowles @ 540-287-3591 to book your next fall fishing trip.

Out for a sunset cruise.......with HOG STRIPERS!

Lake Anna Striper Fishing - September
Another fantastic evening of striper fishing in the journal.  Action was fairly steady during the four hour trip.  Put several quality fish in the boat and a couple went in the cooler.  As water temperatures begin to cool off the striper fishing shows no sign of slacking up!  Lake Anna should continue to produce nice catches of stripers through the fall.  Call Taylor @ 540.842.9155 to book your trip today.

We Beat the Boat Traffic!

Lake Anna Striper Fishing - September
Warm sunshine + Labor Day Weekend = an absolute madhouse on Lake Anna.  Nobody told the stripers that fishing wasn't supposed to be outstanding!  Half day trips from 4pm to dark continue to provide excellent striper action and a great sunset.  Call Taylor @ 540.842.9155 to book your trip today!
