On beautiful Cherokee Lake in East Tennessee!
Cherokee Lake in Eastern Tennessee covers 30,300 acres, is 59 miles long and has 463 miles of shoreline. Fish densities in Cherokee Lake are greater than most of the other TVA Reservoirs due to the high level dense forage base of Threadfin Shad, Gizzard Shad, and Alewife. Cherokee Lake is noted for big Stripers, but is also “loaded” with big fat “Hybrid” Stripers as well!
The Striper and Hybrid fishing is simply off the chart! 20 and 30 fish days are frequent (TN allows catch and release!), with a limit of 2 keepers per fisherman!
StriperFun offers day trips on Cherokee Lake year-round (weather permitting). We use fresh caught live Gizzard and Alewives shad, as well as a variety of my own brand of Captain Jim Special artificial lures to cast and troll with! We troll Captain Jim Special artificial lures on slide divers and umbrella rigs to target suspended schools of fish.
The Stripers and Hybrids in Cherokee Lake must be 15 inches long to keep them. Each fisherman can keep 2 Stripers or Hybrids. Lake trips are 6 hours.
Pricing Guide (Fishing Only) The limit for Stripers is 2 fish per person per day.

Deposits & Cancellation Policy
A $100.00 deposit is required within 5 days of when you make your reservation for any StriperFun fishing trip. The deposit is non-refundable, but we will reschedule with at least three (3) weeks advance notice. Re-scheduling requests or cancellation without at least three (3) weeks advance notice will cause your deposit to be forfeit.
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.
