Captain Bert's Fishing Charters offers a full guided charter service that takes you fishing for the ''Ultimate'' Striped Bass on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake, Va. nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Smith Mountain Lake reigns as Virginia's top freshwater Striped Bass fishery and holds a lake record of 49.4 lbs. for the Striped Bass. Captain Daniel Berthiaume holds a U.S. Coast Guard License and is fully insured as a fishing guide of Smith Mountain Lake. Customers will fish off a 25 ft. Carolina Skiff boat that accommodates fishing parties up to six. ALL equipment is provided and your fish will be filleted and packaged for you to take home. Captain Bert fishes with live bait on down rods, planner boards and artificial lures throughout all of the fishing seasons. As the summer months approach he also uses umbrella rigs when the striped bass are schooled together.
We also offer waterfront lodging that is perfect for small families, couples, and fishermen to have a fun-filled or relaxing vacation! Our lakefront condo is newly purchased and comes with most everything provided. It's located on the top floor of Stripers Landing, a lakefront community of 80 condominiums on Smith Mountain Lake. The top floor provides you with an absolutely gorgeous view of the sunset every evening. From our living room and deck you'll overlook the Olympic-size swimming pool, the boat docks, and the beautiful, tranquil cove of Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia!
Come join us for an adventurous fishing charter or just stay at our condo for a relaxing vacation at SML!
