Summer has nearly arrived at the Lake, bringing with it barbecues, bare feet, and lots of sunshine – but summer also means it’s time for striper fishing. If you’re itching to tie into that true trophy striper, but don’t know where to start, then Captain Kenny Short is your man. Owner and operator of Kenny’s Striper and Guide Service, Captain Kenny has the equipment and the know-how to take you to the real hot-spots on the Lake. A lifelong striper enthusiast, Kenny is also a veteran of the National Striped Bass Association striper fishing tournament trail, where he and his wife Linda have managed to keep their Team Polar in the top five rankings for the past two years in a row. How’s that for credentials? Kenny guides year round on Smith Mountain Lake, so he’s available whenever the striper bug bites you!
