Smith Fishing and Outdoor Adventure offers fishing charters in the beautiful Tennessee Valley and surrounding areas. Capt. Greg's specialty is crappie fishing and he has developed techniques which are successful year-round, not only during spring spawning periods. Additionally, his method selectively targets larger fish (slabs) and 12-16 inch fish are the rule rather than exception. Your Captain for the day, USCG-licensed Capt. Greg, has studied and fished Earth's lakes, rivers, and oceans for most of his life. In addition to being an avid fisherman, he holds a PhD in Biology and has published numerous scientific papers on a variety of fishery topics. Moreover, he has lived and fished in Florida, Panama, Bahrain, Hawaii, Wisconsin, South Dakota and, most recently, Tennessee. He has won numerous fishing and diving tournaments through the years! Your trip will take place on Capt. Greg’s 2022 Tracker Grizzly 1754 powered by a Yamaha Four-Stroke engine. The boat is ideal for fishing local waters and is equipped with Humminbird Helix fishfinders with GPS/Sidescan/Mega Live Imaging, live baitwell, Haswing Cayman Trolling Motor with electronic anchoring, Bimini top for those hot summer days, and all required USCG safety equipment.

This charter leaves from the Harrison State Park Boat Ramp for a half-day fishing trip specifically targeting white and black crappie; however, other species including bass and catfish are taken as well. This is a particularly enjoyable and safe trip and fishing never takes place more than one-half mile from shore. Typically, trolling with artificial and livebait using planer boards is the preferred technique for selecting a better quality and quantity of fish. It allows for up to six rods to be fished simultaneously which allows you to catch more fish!! Secondary strategies include jigging and casting various artificial and live baits.

Outstanding Fishing Trips!
Greg gets you on the fish! Whatever you are looking for, Greg will get em. I have been on many trips and have never been disappointed. We have caught multiple types of Bass, Catfish, Drum, Crappie and even "keeper" size bluegill. Greg is great trolling, bait casting, dock shooting or using live bait. Excellent Captain and Guide!

So relaxing
I'm use to deep southern trips. The heat can be brutal. On this lake in Tennessee, at this time of year it was so different. Greg has a long history of fishing and it shows. Best of times, relaxing & catching fish.
