Come and fish some of Tennessee’s best lakes for a variety of species using trolling techniques rarely seen in the South.
Capt. Scott Lillie specializes in trolling techniques using downriggers, planer boards, and directional divers. He says, “These tools allow us to present our baits in water that is impossible to fish using traditional techniques.”
There is no experience or angling expertise required. It can be a great new experience for the avid angler, OR the same great experience for someone who has never touched a fishing rod, including kids.
Lillie can carry up to three anglers in his Tracker Pro Guide 175 targeting lake trout, rainbow trout and brown trout. He also catches bass, walleye and yellow perch depending upon location and season. (SEE CALENDAR BELOW)
Lillie fishes a wide variety of water including the Tennessee River, and he hits the road focusing specifically on Watauga, Dale Hollow, Chilhowee and Calderwood reservoirs (see map below). Sometimes he even ventures across the state line into North Carolina. Many of these deep, cold water mountain reservoirs harbor excellent populations of trout thanks to the state’s aggressive reservoir stocking programs.
Lillie cut his teeth learning to troll for trout and salmon on the Great Lakes. He grew to love the very specialized downrigging and trolling techniques and has transferred the skills acquired over 30 years to Tennessee.
Sit back, relax and enjoy a unique fishing trip with Scott.
