Welcome to meltonhillbill.com. My name is USCG Licensed Captain Billy Davis, and I have taken great pride in fishing these waters over the past two decades and now I want to let others get out and share in some of the adventures I take. I was born and raised in Knoxville, went to Karns High School and I am graduate of the University of Tennessee with a bachelor's of science degree in geology. I grew up fishing these waters and realize how special of a place it is. I fish all over eastern Tennessee, but my true love is chasing muskies and trophy striped bass on Melton Hill reservoir outside of Knoxville, TN. I also chase trophy stripers all around eastern Tennessee and have patterned out trophy fish in many locations. If you want to fish with someone that knows the ins and outs of trophy fish, look no further than meltonhillbill.com. I eat, drink, and sleep, fishing. I fish hard, fast, and efficiently. Please know that all fish I target are caught and released, except for the occasional walleye.
I will guarantee that no one has put in more effort in scouting out these waters than I have. The pictures throughout this site will speak for themselves.
Please take a minute and visit the middle Tennessee Angler Magazine website. I write monthly forecasts for area striper and musky fishing.
By the time I am dead, I am going to have one heck of a photo collection. Join me as we continue to have a great time on the waters of east Tennessee.
The 2015 East Tennessee Fishing Show was a huge success.
Below is Hayley Rogers and the largest
striped bass caught by a woman on my boat.
44lbs. Congrats on a great catch!!
Most of my trips will be ran from Melton Hill Marina.
Join me as we target some true trophies.
