Recent Article Published June 2005 in Arizona about Captain Clay Cunningham!

All local sportsman John Beauchamp and three of his friends wanted to do was kill a little time and do a little fishing while on a business trip in Atlanta. What they ended with was a fun-filled trip they will remember for a long time. Beauchamp said they had been going to Atlanta for the past four months on regular business trips. Last week, they didn't need to be to work until Tuesday, so they decided to try their luck on a guided half-day striped bass fishing trip on Lake Sidney Lanier, which is located about 50 miles north of the big city of Atlanta. Beauchamp had searched on the internet and came up with the name of a guide service that caught his eye. 

The captain was Clay Cunningham and he owned a business called Catching Not Fishing Guide Service. The lake that Capt. Cunningham fishes on more than 250 days a year is located in northern Georgia in the foothills of the Blue ridge Mountains. The lake was formed in the 1950's with the construction of Buford Dam. The Chattahoochee and Chestatee rivers flow into this 38,000-acre Georgian reservoir that has more than 692 miles of shoreline. It is estimated that the lake has more than 7 million visitors a year. Besides striped bass, the lake is home to spotted bass , white bass, largemouth bass, channel catfish, yellow perch, walleye and bream. 

The day started at 6 a.m. when Cunningham met the anxious anglers. They climbed Cunningham's 24-foot Sea Pro fishing boat that was equipped with fishing poles and live bait. Beauchamp said it didn't take long for the veteran fishing guide to locate fish for the small group of friends. And find plenty of fish he did. "We caught between 30-40 fish during our trip." Beauchamp said. "The largest one the group caught weighed between 12 and 15 pounds." All of the fish caught were quickly released even thought eh anglers could have legally kept them. 

"We had a great time out there," Beauchamp said. "The scenery was awesome and the fishing just as good. captain Clay really worked hard for us." If you are in the Atlanta area and want to experience the striper fishing experience that Beauchamp and his friends did, call Cunningham at (770) 630-2673.
