Veteran Fishing Guide Merv Johnson

Here at the Nashville Fishing Guides we have the boats, baits, and our secret honey holes mapped out to make your next Percy Priest Lake fishing trip a fun and memorable experience. To ensure our clients have the best experience, we have outfitted our boats with state of the art electronics. Watch your bait fall through the water column on a 21 inch monitor and put the bait directly in front of the fishes face with the latest forward facing technology. Have friends joining you and don’t want them to crowd your space? Send them to the back of the boat where they will have their own 12 inch monitor and forward facing sonar.

Call us today and let us put you on track for a great days fishing.

Veteran fishing guide (Merv) Mervin Johnson and his team are primarily guiding out of Nashville’s Percy Priest Lake’s beautiful Fate Sanders Marina in pursuit of stringers and live-wells filled with White Bass, Yellow Bass, Hybrid, Crappie, Bass, and Stripers. Join us for your next guided fishing trip and discover why..

Will your guide know where the fish are?

Master Fishing Guide Merv Johnson is fond of saying “90% of the fish on this lake are in 10% of the water”.
That’s why it’s not uncommon for Merv to burn an entire tank of gas in a day checking his secret honey holes to monitor the availability and numbers of current fish on a given site.
Merv Believes the client comes first, and this gives him the drive to find that elusive 10% of the water that provides his clients an exciting and memorable day of catching plenty of nice fish.

“Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught”
