Customers will fish off a 25 ft. 2020 Sportsman 247 boat that accommodates fishing parties up to six. ALL equipment is provided.

Captain Daniel Berthiaume has been fishing Smith Mountain lake for over 15 years.  “Captain Bert” is one of a select group of elite Striper Guides on the lake who combines tremendous results with top notch customer service.  As our lead guide Captain Bert is responsible for training and mentoring our guide staff.  He personally oversees the outfitting of each charter boat with tackle, electronics, bait storage tanks.  Captain Bert develops the days fishing plan for his charter staff.  While on the water Bert communicates and coordinates our charter fleet to get our Captains on the big fish – on time and on target!

Captain Bert fishes with live bait on down rods, planner boards and artificial lures throughout all of the fishing seasons. As the summer months approach he also uses umbrella rigs when the striped bass are schooled together.
