Cumberland River Stripers
The Cumberland River in Nashville, TN is world famous for trophy Stripers. This is where our Tennessee State record was caught and weighed in at a whopping 65 pounds 6 ounces. The River is extraordinarily fertile. It grows Big Bellied Stripers like they are on steroids. These big bruisers aren’t gentle in anyway. We fish for them with heavy rods and heavy line. Once a Striper reaches 40 pounds, it is almost impossible to control with conventional tackle and it is a different animal. This may be the biggest fresh water fish you will ever catch. In 2010, we hooked a Monster and it took off upstream and wouldn’t stop. I got the boat turned around and chased it down before it nearly spooled us. It took out over 400’ of line before you could say “getty-up”. You have heard all the terms: Drag Screaming, Rod Bending and Reel Smoking. Well, it was all going on. You may think you have heard all the expletives associated with such an event. Well, let me tell you, there were phases shouted that I’m not sure were even English. After a considerable amount of time we landed this big belled pig. It weighed in at 60 pounds, and as of yet, is the biggest fish we have ever had in our boat. I thought we had done it, I thought we had broken the record, close but, no cigar. Well, ever since, I have had a goal. That is for one of our clients to catch the next state record. One thing for sure, you are going to have a good time and maybe, just maybe have one of these monsters on the end of your line.

Cabins on the Lake
I have not stayed in these cabins, however before I would recommend them to my customers I did visit them. I also meet with the owner Steve Jessen. He was very nice and gave me a tour of all of his cabins. I was impressed with Steve and the cleanliness and the location of the cabins. He has four cabins in one area; Heron's Landing, Moonlit Bay, Fernwood and Slayden House. I believe you will enjoy your stay at Old Hickory Lake Cabins. I have worked out special pricing with Steve for Nashville Fishing Charters Clients. Be sure to tell Steve you are fishing with us and ask for special pricing.
