4 lb Sinclair Striper 2008

Chilly winter day striper on Sinclair


Guide Shawn McNew has over 30 years of fishing experience.  He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in Wildlife and Fisheries Science.  During his tenure, he competed in the NCAA Division I level in swimming and received All-America honors four years in a row.  In 1996, Tennessee brought the SEC championship home to Knoxville and in 1998, they finished the year ranked 4th in the NCAA.

He carries with him the experience and skills to make nearly every fishing outing successful.   Shawn is light-hearted but straightforward about fishing.  His dedication to the conservation of this resource is reflected in his fishing techniques.  With a wealth of fishing information, Shawn is as much a teacher as he is an ambassador of the waterways.  Few other services catch AND release as many fish as Seein Stripes. 

Both Sinclair and Oconee provide great opportunity to catch lots of striper.  The size of the fish isn't what you find where striper and cooler waters mix, but using the proper techniques and tackle makes for some GREAT fun!  Our average weights run about 3 lbs on Sinclair and a little larger on Oconee.

Enjoy a trouble and worry free outing as you let Seein Stripes guide Shawn McNew provide everything you need for a great visit to the lake.
