    Looking for something fun to do in the North Georgia Mountains?  Lake Nottely offers a unique opportunity to catch landlocked Striped Bass and Hybrids that can weigh over 50 lbs.  This fun and exciting fishing is year round fun, perfect for the family that has never fished to the most experienced of anglers. 

    North Georgia’s Premier Fishing Guide Service offers two guides with over 30 years of combined fishing experience on Lake Nottely in Blairsville, Ga.  Both guides use large, center console boats, outfitted with the latest electronics, rods, tackle, and live bait.  You are certain to have a safe, enjoyable outing, while being provided with all the proper knowledge and equipment need to catch these incredible fish.


    Trips begin each morning from Hughes General Store in Blairsville, GA.  Your guide will outfit the boat with the freshest live bait including blue-back herring, trout, and gizzard shad while you grab a fresh, hot biscuit and coffee from the store.  Then you will be off to beautiful Lake Nottely, a 4,180 acre TVA reservoir, that is roughly 20 miles long.  Depending on the length of your trip, you will spend your day fishing fishing for one of fresh-water's greatest sport fish in uncrowded conditions, surrounded by the picturesque settings of the North Georgia Mountains.
