OK folks, as this warm-weather fishing season gets cranked up, we need to let everyone know about one of Smith Mountain Lake’s great fishing secrets… the guides know where the action is! If you haven’t invested enough time, and we’re talking years of watching where the real ‘hot spots’ come and go, then it is difficult at best to maximize your day out on the lake on the hunt for one of our greatest game resources… Stripers! Fishing guides really can play an integral part of a day out on the lake and getting just what it is you went out there for in the first place. These guys have spent a large part of their careers getting to know the area, developing a proven track record of great catches and researching just what attracts these beauties. Enlisting a guide service is definitely alot more than just renting a boat for the day, it’s more along the lines of investing and greatly improving your chances of bringing home that dream fish that’s been swimming around in your head for the past few months.
Captains Spike & Kathy Franceschini of Spike’s Prime Time Fishin’ Guided Tours have over 35 years combined experience in these waters and have two completely equipped 22ft. deck boats which
accommodate parties of up to 6 each, using live bait and artificial
lure techniques. This is truly a ‘turnkey’ fishing experience with all the equipment provided, along with pictures of the
day’s catch, and your fish filleted and packaged!
And if that isn’t enough, see what Spike & Kathy have to say on their spikesprimetimefishin.com website:
Top off your visit by staying in one of Spike & Kathy’s luxury
waterfront vacation rentals. Enjoy our "million dollar" view and
convenient location in one of our superb units. Leave straight from our
docks on your Striper Fishing Charter or kick back on our beach or
