Welcome to Set the Hook Fishing.  If you are looking for an exciting day on Lake Lure you’ve found the right place.  Lake Lure is one of the hidden jewels in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.  We are one of the few Guide Companies that focus their full attention on Lake Lure.  Lake Lure is full of Trophy Largemounth and Smallmouth Bass.  There is an abundance of white bass, bluegill and crappie.  Depending on the season, you can plan on having a fun and exciting time chasing these great species.

Ott DeFoe, 2011 Bassmaster Rookie of the Year and recreational fishing guide.

If you are interested in fishing the great waters of Douglas Lake, Cherokee Lake, Ft. Loudon or any of the beautiful streams of East Tennessee Ott's guide services. I am now guiding on all East Tennessee lakes and rivers.  My years of tournament experience will make for a great time on the water for people of all ages and experience levels! The river fishing in East Tennessee is some of the best in the south. I offer a jet boat experience for the river outings, I believe this is an awesome way for kids to learn. A guided trip is also great for an angler looking for tournament preparation or learning a specific technique. I offer 4 and 8 hour days.
