About Your Trip

Getting out in the Melton Hill Reservoir and catching a trophy Musky has never been easier. Captain Steven—the current state record holder for Musky in Tennessee—will guide you on your trip to catch your own personal best.

Picture this: you're waking up at the crack of dawn, excited for a day of adventure on the water. As you step outside, the cool morning air hits your face and you can already feel the excitement building
inside you. As you make your way to the dock, you see your charter boat waiting for you, ready to go. You climb aboard and introduce yourself to Captain Steven, who starts to talk to you about Musky fishing and the local environment.

As you cast your line into the water, you feel a rush of excitement as you wait for a bite. Suddenly, you feel a heavy tug on your line and you reel it in with all your might. As the fish breaks the surface, you can see the distinctive pattern and know you've hooked "The Fish of A Thousand Casts"!

As the sun starts to set, you reluctantly head back to the dock, already planning your next Musky charter fishing trip in Tennessee. It's been an exciting and unforgettable day on the water, and you can't wait to do it all again!

Captain Steven is a real pro when it comes to Musky fishing, and he'll do everything possible to help you get hooked up on one of these challenging fish. Get out there and give it your best!

What a great day on Melton Hill Lake with Steve. He knows the water like he has been fishing it all his life. Exactly what our group was looking for and he moved things around to make it work for us.
Awesome guy and expert Musky guide!

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass.

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
