I have been fishing for the last 50 years. My father started me off fishing every weekend since I was 5 years old fishing for Bass on the Potomac. In the 80’s I got into BASS Tournaments and fished on average 20 to 25 tournaments a year till I moved to Lake Anna in 1989 to build and operate a marina down lake [Pleasants Landing] with my wife.
Living on the water we fished together a lot for Bass until one day she hooked a 15 pound Striper on a jerkbait and that’s when I got hooked on Striper Fishing. I was always addicted to fishing but the thrill of locating and fighting Stripers made me go crazy!
After meeting and fishing with some friends who also were addicted [Anthony Hicks “Striperholic”, Danny Ratcliff “Baitrunner” and Gene Hord “a guide who knew every Striper by name back then”], I knew guiding for stripers would be my destiny.
I fished with artificial lures for 6 or 8 years until I realized what Gizzard Shad and Herring would do to a Striper. Now I always have a tank of bait on board along with my favorite lures.
I guided as an associate guide for another service on the lake for a couple of years before starting Lake Anna Striper Guide Service. Throughout the years my customer base has grown to the point that I had to bring on additional guides.
I team up on the water with my other guides to locate the schools of Stripers for our clients. I am the only guide on the lake who fishes for Stripers full time. My clients catch more Stripers than all other Guides clients… COMBINED.
