Areas of Service and Expertise
Tennessee River (Nickajack & Chickamauga Lakes) ... often fishing in the shadow of the famous Tennessee Aquarium.
Capt. Simms says, "It's one thing to see a giant catfish in the Aquarium. It's an entirely different experience to see one on the end of your line!"
Types of Experiences and Trips Provided
Half-Day and Full-Day Charters ... available 7 days a week. Advance reservation required.
We "catch & release," or if you wish to keep a few fish for your dinner table, that's fine too.
