Burton's Fishing Guide Service Info-Lake Cumberland Striper Fishing
Captain Jeff Burton
Looking for a Striper Fishing Charter? Burton's Guide Service offers the best in Striper Fishing on Lake Cumberland! Guided trips offered year round, weather permitting. We offer 6 hour trips throughout the year. The average striper caught weighs 8 to 12 pounds! I have been guiding on Lake Cumberland for more than 30 years and I have fished all over Cumberland and learned to follow and catch the fish as they move around the lake during different parts of the year. I am a Kentucky Licensed Guide as well as a US Coast Guard Licensed merchant marine captain.
All bait and equipment is provided and boats have Coast Guard safety equipment, first aide kits, GPS systems and fish locators. Boats are heated and enclosed for inclement weather. We will clean and bag your fish at the end of the trip and will provide photos upon request.
The trip is a six (6) hour charter or until the limit of Stripers is caught. If you want to fish beyond the normal 6 hour charter, the rate is $75 per hour. The limit is 2 Stripers per person over 22 inches. Under Kentucky law, Captain's cannot keep fish on a paid charter so only the customers can keep fish. You will need to bring your lunch and drinks, sun glasses, sun screen, cooler for fish fillets and rain gear (if predicted). A Kentucky Fishing License is required.
