What can thrill a fisherman to his very soul as much as having a Smith Mountain Lake striper on his line?! Warm weather is just around the corner and with it comes some of the best fishing in the east… fishing on Smith Mountain Lake in early season. With a lake that’s 40 miles long and features over 500 miles of shoreline (that’s those special nooks and crannies we’re all looking for), SML offers everyone an opportunity to experience world-class fresh water angling.
What’s that? No boat? Don’t know all the ins and outs of this gem of a tributary? No problem! Captain Daniel Berthiaume (Capt. Bert) has the perfect solution. Captain Bert’s Fishing Charters and Waterfront Lodging is just the answer to your fishing prayers. I managed to find his website pretty easy and here’s a quick excerpt from it:
When you book a trip with Capt. Bert not only will you be able to share experiences and knowledge in both the sport of fishing as well as the world of professional ice hockey, but you’ll also hear about the many striper citations that have landed in his net! The Lake is beautiful during ALL seasons and the fishing is great year round. So come join him for an exciting day on Smith Mountain Lake.
