Located in Southern Kentucky, Lake Cumberland offers 55,000 acres of breathtaking beauty, and some of the very best striped bass fishing in the country. I would invite you and your family to visit Cumberland's rugged beauty and sample some of the most exciting fishing to be found. Stripers can be caught year round and our enclosed, heated boats are comfortable even in the winter months. Lake Cumberland stripers will average 10-15 pounds, but 20 plus pound fish are not uncommon and 40 plus pounders turn up each year. So, whether you're an expert or a novice, let us guide you to some of the most heart pounding fishing in the southeast.. Have kids? Bring them along. The striper is a great fish to introduce youngsters to the excitement of fishing. Most of my charters originate from Conley Bottom Resort, conveniently located in Wayne County between Burnside and Monticello, KY, although other arrangements can be made. The area also offers water skiing, house boating, and sight seeing. There are two full service state parks on Lake Cumberland, and three golf courses within a 30-minute drive of Conley Bottom Resort. See you on the water.
My charters start at first light and last at least 6 hrs. or until the legal limit is caught. Anglers may legally keep two stripers apiece, and the fish must be at least two feet long. Pricing is as follows:
- 2 people - $250.00
- 3 people - $300.00
- 4 people - $350.00
- 5 people - $400.00
- One child 12 or under may fish free
A $50.00 deposit is required for all trips. Checks or money orders need to be made out and sent to: Philip Glass, PO Box 275, Bronston, KY 42518. Cell # 606-271-2247.
I provide all equipment, all customers need to bring is a KY fishing license (kids UNDER age 16 do not need a license), rain gear, camera, sun glasses, whatever you wish to eat and drink, and a cooler for fish filets. I will happily filet and package your fish at the end of the day. Remember to dress for the weather. Although afternoon temperatures may be warm, the morning run to the chosen fishing area can be quite cool. Always bring more clothes than you think you'll need.
