Bass fishing on Dale Hollow and Lake Cumberland

Captain Jim Fishing Charters offers Bass fishing on Dale Hollow and Lake Cumberland year-round! We offer two styles of Bass fishing for our customers:

For clients interested in artificial lure fishing, we offer "running and gunning" Bass tournament style casting of lures with "hands on" instructional training.  This is limited to two customers (plus the Captain) per boat. These trips are very popular for clients wanting to learn fishing with lures!

For clients interested in live bait fishing, we offer “live bait” Bass fishing December thru April for huge Smallmouth!  This “drift fishing” rock banks with light line fishing with live Shad is an “ultra productive” way to catch monster Smallmouth!  These trips are up to four customers (plus the Captain) per boat. Our customers love it!

Deposits & Cancellation Policy

A $100.00 deposit is required when you make your reservation for any StriperFun fishing trip.   The deposit is non-refundable, but we will reschedule with at least two (2) weeks advance notice.  Re-scheduling requests or cancellation without at least two (2) weeks advance notice will cause your deposit to be forfeit.

There is no bathroom on the boat, nor are there any close on the water restroom facilities. Men relieve themselves off the side of the boat and we have an emergency bucket available for the ladies.  If this is a problem, please advise us now before arriving for your trip.

Re-scheduling is not allowed because of predicted foul weather, including predicted rain.  We fish in the rain and your boat is covered.  The Captain reserves the right to re-schedule if the weather turns bad on the day of the trip.  Generally, this decision will be based upon high or dangerous muddy water, hazardous travel conditions (snow or ice) or frequent lightening the morning of the trip. If your trip is cancelled because of the aforementioned dangerous conditions, your deposit is good for another day.
