Happy Fishermen

Happy fishermen show off their stripers from a recent outing at Smith Mountain Lake, thanks in part to Tommy's Guide Service

Years back my best friend from New Jersey Bob “Dude” Davie and his son Bob “Lil Dude” Davis came down here to Virginia to go fishing with my stepson Adam Clifton and my nephew Travis Morgan. Adam, Travis and I had attended the Fishersville Outdoor Hunting Show in Fishersville. We were glad we went because we met a captain that charters on Smith Mountain Lake for stripers. 

None of us ever fished for stripers before and the pictures get your attention. We couldn’t wait to go. We went a few times and then the captain we fished with went out of business. So much for fishing for stripers and none of us having a boat to fish from or a captain to take us out. That has all changed now. That was until I talked with Captain Tommy Moore.

Tommy Moore used to live in Appomattox and now lives at Smith Mountain Lake. Tommy now has a charter guide service business and he fishes for stripers. I needed to get in touch with Tommy and found out about his business.
