The Best Catfishing Experience

Our year-round fishing excursions offer something for every catfish enthusiast. While we operate throughout the year, the prime time for trophy catfish is from September to May. If you're looking to reel in a Big Ol' Bluecat weighing in excess of 50 pounds, late fall and winter months are your golden opportunity. In April and May, we target both trophy blues and flatheads.

June is the ideal time for night fishing, especially for trophy flatheads and some impressive blues. During the hotter months of July and August, the action remains sizzling, though catfish sizes typically range from 1 to 30 pounds. We're equipped to cater to groups of all sizes, with three guide boats at your service.

 

​Our Fishing Locations

Our primary fishing grounds include Pickwick, Wilson, Wheeler, Guntersville, Nickajack, and Chickamauga Lakes. However, we're always open to special requests and can target the catfish species of your choice on your preferred lake or river. Whether you're in pursuit of trophy catfish or smaller eating-size fish, we're committed to preserving our catfish population. All cats over 15 pounds are photographed and released.

​What We Provide

When you choose SouthernCats Guide Service, rest assured that we've got all your fishing needs covered. We supply all the necessary equipment, a comfortable boat, and top-quality bait. However, you're responsible for arranging your own lodging, meals, and fishing license. Convenient campsites are readily available near all the areas we fish, making it easy for you to plan your adventure.
