About Your Charter Captain … Kenny Short

Catching a striped bass with Kenny Short on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia

Kenny has a great passion for striper fishing. Kenny caught his first striper at the age of 13. Since then he has consistently strived to improve his fishing techniques and with the asking, he will share these techniques with you to better your chances at that "Trophy Striper" you are hoping to catch.

In addition to offering guided charters on Smith Mountain Lake, Kenny fishes the professional Gold Cup tournament trail with the NSBA (National Striped Bass Association). Kenny and his team "Team Polar" won the National Striped Bass Association's Team of the Year 2006 award.

Their biggest sponsor in this tournament trail is Dynasty Boats of Alabama, who specially designed a 2310 Polar Bay boat for their tournament needs. This boat that you will be fishing from is roomy, comfortable - it's the Cadillac of all fishing boats! If you are looking for a luxurious, serious fishing machine then visit the Polar Boats web site or call (256) 739-4182.

While out striper fishing with Kenny, he will assist you in fishing but you will bring the fish to the boat yourself and get the full thrill of each catch.

Kenny guides charters on Smith Mountain Lake year round. He also fishes other lakes in the Spring, Summer and Fall. If you are interested in another lake other than Smith Mountain Lake, the rates vary from lake to lake. Call for information and rates.
