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 worked for 10 years as an environmental geologist studying water quality all over east Tennessee. After realizing fishing is my true passion, I took the leap and decided to go all in as a full time fishing guide. The results of my adventure are on the next few pages. I offer what I believe is the most unique striper fishing adventures in east Tennessee.
This is just a small sample of what we got into in 2016. If you want to do this, book a trip. There are only 365 days in 2017.
I use methods that are different than other guides in the area. For the most part, we target large stripers with large live baits.
I do not fish for deep fish unless I have to and always try and bring the action up towards the surface. This gives you more of a show and a great experience.
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. In a addition to fishing on Melton Hill, 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 am licensed and insured for your safety. I doubt anybody spends more time on the water than I do so feel safe knowing I know the water.
Join me as we continue to have a great time on the waters of east Tennessee.
I can assure you that I scout your fishing adventure more than anybody.
