Captain Doug Dixon reels in fishermen for chartered trips on a fully loaded 24 Bay Champion boat, setting out for half-day bass-chasing adventures on Lake Lanier, one of the premier fishing locations for striped and spotted bass. Fisherfolk are set to hook big ones using the provided equipment, including rods and reels, bait, and a fish call. Sportsmen and women boasting rods and reels are welcome to bring their own equipment, as long as it meets Georgia state fishing regulations. The boat, bait, and tackle will be ready before you arrive, so the scale stalking can commence immediately after a short tactics discussion and safety orientation.
Trips begin at sunrise, when fish are most active on their morning commutes. Snacks, and sodas are provided so fishers can travel light and operate at full strength. Bass hunters should come prepared with sunscreen, sunglasses, their Georgia fishing licenses, and appropriate clothing, such as lucky fly-fishing headbands or night-crawler ammunition belt.

Captain Doug loves catching striped bass. Sometimes, he even breaks out a fly-fishing rig to intensify the fight, a practice that would soon deplete the strength of lesser fishermen. But with more than a decade of learning the patterns of striped bass, Captain Doug knows how to find, hook, not get eaten by, and coach clients through landing one of these freshwater leviathans. Now part of the pro staff at Champion Boats, he takes parties out on his 24 Bay Champ boat, supplying anglers with all the equipment they need. Also an enthusiastic trout fisherman, Captain Doug can take anglers out on the Chattahoochee River, or all the way to the Rocky Mountains to catch trophy rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout in the Snake River and the Green River. Especially memorable catches earn a place in the captain's heart, as well as in his photo album.
