 I grew up on Lake Harding, and nobody knows it better than Smitty.  He has great equipment, is well organized, and knows where the fish are and how to catch them.  He also loves kids, and was very kind and patient with my 7-year-old son (who is now officially hooked on fishing.)  Great Trip!

This is a site for crappie fishermen by crappie fishermen. It doesn't matter if you are just starting to pursue crappie or a polished veteran. We will put you where the fish are and the method to best catch them. If we don't catch your dinner the next trip is On Us. Come join us for a great day of memories on some of the best crappie waters in Alabama or Georgia. Nothing beats a day on the "Hooch" middle Chattahoochee River Lakes. We target crappie on every trip but we have to catch what is biting. We provide gear,tackle, bait, bottled water and lance crackers. All you need to do is set up your trip, show up dressed for conditions ready to fish and we will put a smile on your face with a fish catching trip.
