Tenn-Tom Guide Service

Jimmy Berry

I love fishing and being in the outdoors. I have been fishing on the beautiful Tenn.-Tom Waterway and tributaries for 46 years. I do guiding services full time. I love my job and am happy to serve. I’ll be guiding on these bodies of waters:Aliceville Lake, Columbus Lake, and Aberdeen Lake. These lakes produce tournament winning fish on regular basis.

 Guiding on these waters comes as second nature. I know it like the back of my hand. Whether you like fishing for Crappie, Catfish, Bass or Bream or just needing a Guide to show you around these waters. I can show and give you the local names of the creeks, slews, gravel pits, and other fishing holes. I can also show the shallow and stumpy areas of the waterway so you don’t ruin your boat, motor, or self for that matter. Which ever you decided, I can accommodate your needs.  

I love Crappie season the best. Feb-May & Sept.-November are best times for crappie fishingi around a new or a full moon. My techniques: Hand held poles, spinning real rod combos, whether spider rigging trolling with jigs or minnows, vertical jigging, slip cork fishing with jigs or minnows. I have a large number of artificial structures in these lakes that are crappiei habitats. These habitats produce lots of crappie every year.  

  I compete in the local crappie fishingi tournaments such as: Cabala’s Crappie USA, Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters and others smaller fruit jar type tournaments yearly. My latest achievements, I finished 8th in the 2012 Crappie Masters Classic and 10th in the 2012 Crappie USA trail tournament on the Tenn.–Tom waterway here at Columbus, MS.

  I’m a commercial fisherman for catfish. I catch large amounts and sizes of catfish every year. I fish with fishing poles and fishing jugs. I love to catch the large Flati Head and Blue catfish on fishing poles. Cat fishing seasons are May-October during the new moon for best time. I will offer guided trips in the day time or night.
