I have been fishing on Buggs Island / Kerr Lake Reservoir and Gaston Lake my entire life.  I love to catch crappie and can teach you how as well.  I won the National Crappie Classic and have also placed second twice as well as third in the Crappie Classic. I really enjoy  fishing with good people and showing them how to catch crappie, stripers and catfish.  So come enjoy a day with us on the water.


Kerr Reservoir represents the confluence of the Dan and Roanoke Rivers.  Dammed many years ago as a flood control reservoir, the lake level fluctuates greatly during the year.  In the spring, the water typically rises into the bushes and shoreline cover, and in the summer it typically drops well below normal level.  This is a historic area where the Occaneechi native Americans once lived, and is named for a four mile island well to the east of the confluence of rivers.  When you come and fish with us, you will enjoy these pristine waters and likely will appreciate getting out of the hustle and bustle of every day life and can enjoy the sights and sounds of wildlife on this remote lake.

I highly recommend Butch Arthur.  There is no better fisherman on the lake.  If you want to learn from the best - it is Butch.  Ask anyone.

I've crappie fished with Butch twice and striper fished once and all trips were fantastic.  If you want a great fishing experience, give Butch a call

I've fished Kerr for years and can tell you Butch is one of the best.  Although I  am a bass fisherman, I like to try for other species, and when it comes to crappie, I call Butch.
