Draggin' Balls Guide Service Kerr Lake Striper Trolling About Us



Hello, my name is Chris Buchanan also know on the water as "Hoss", owner/operator of Draggin' Balls Guide Service. Thank you for taking the time to check out our site, it would be my pleasure to be of service to you. I have fished Kerr Lake 30+ years. We are currently fishing out of a 23' Carolina Skiff fully rigged with top of the line Electronics and gear. While we are know for our Trolling, we offer several styles of fishing that tend to be more productive at certain times. However you are in control of your trip and we will cater to what you want to focus on. 

We Offer:

Trolling: Our trolling techniques are second to none. You get to see how we do it. The action can get fast and furious in a hurry. Covering lots of water, it gives a good time to get into sonar interpretation. Seeing and understanding what you are looking at will make huge improvements in your own fishing. 

Winter Dead Sticking: During the winter months typically mid November thru March, this can produce some awesome days of fishing. Huge numbers of fish are not uncommon on these trips. These fish are thick in the winter and fight more aggressively than the summer months. They put on a rod bending, drag peeling show on light bass gear.

The two methods above are my preferred ways of putting clients on fish. We also offer live bait fishing, casting, jigging, and top water fishing. During the fall and winter when birds are active on the water, we sometimes switch tactics during trips giving you an all around experience. We will cover any information you wish while out. Electronics, interpretation, set up, gear, tackle, seasonal patterns, and presentations are some of the info we will key in on. 

Your satisfaction is our goal and we guarantee it. We want you to have a great trip and you will get your money's worth in information, but we also want you to have a successful trip. In the event we do not put a fish in the boat I will schedule you another trip of equal value free of charge. You will see stripes one way or another. Please see the rates page for more information on trips and let's plan a memorable trip just for you.
