 About Us 

Stripemaster's consists of Mike Perry, Mark Perry, and we have to mention Jessica, Mike's wife. She has spent countless hours on the lake with us and she built this website.

Enough with the petty details. We have been striper fishing on Smith Lake for 10 combined experience. The first thing I would like to say about fishing is we are the newest guide service on Smith Lake, and we are not the guides you hear about that make "guarantees" and then go to sleep once we're fishing. We love striper fishing and will always work as hard as it takes to put as many fish in the boat as possible. It doesn't matter if you're a local angler trying to learn how to fish Smith Lake or you're an out of towner wanting a taste of Smith lake's world class striper fishing, we will always do our best to put you on fish.

Our favorite time of year to striper fish is the spring. Nothing gets your heart pumping like seeing a big daddy striper "slurping" at your shad on top. In the spring the fish are fairly shallow, but always looking up, so we fish with planer boards and live shad. We move just fast enough to keep the lines moving and give the shad about 6-8 ft. of line to swim around on. We also catch a lot of fish on big redfins in the spring. All the rest of the year we use down rods with live shad, at various depths. A down rod is just a 2 oz eggsinker with about a 3 ft. leader, hung underneath the boat.
