Lake Anna Boating Lessons

Boating Lessons on Lake Anna:

Many possessing their Boating Safety Certificates may have very limited hands-on boating experience or no actual boating experience at all.   Naturally, this may cause many to lack confidence in their abilities to safely and comfortably operate a powerboat.  Therefore, we offer those lesser experienced boaters a hands-on opportunity to receive calm, slow and steady practice on Docking, Casting off, Maneuvering in tight places (“Turning a boat on a dime.”), Man Overboard Scenario, and more.  This three (3) hour hands-on boating lesson will be performed on the water while aboard the Orange Troller, with an experienced US Coast Guard Licensed Master Captain.  You will also receive a comprehensive packet which will contain a boatload of information which includes Boating and Equipment Tips.  All lessons are private.

Lake Anna Striper Fishing Lessons

Striper – Rockfish Fishing on Lake Anna:

Dislike having to catch, buy, or maintain live bait?  Want to learn in detail how to troll fish and catch the BIG LEAGUE Striper – Rockfish using no live bait?  Learn how to use artificial lures then kick back and enjoy the breeze as you gently troll along.  Suddenly, “BANG!” heart pounding action to the sound of multiple reels screaming as these Big Game Fish attack!  That’s trolling for Striper!

Trolling, in essence, is the art of fishing by trailing one or more hook and line behind a moving boat.  We offer a hands-on class to those wishing to learn Capt. Ellis’ successful trolling techniques, using artificial lures, in catching Striped Bass, also known as “Striper” and “Rockfish.”  All of the necessary learning equipment will be provided.  You will also receive a comprehensive packet which will contain a boatload of information which includes a list of our tackle used.  Each class is scheduled to run three (3) hours and will take place on the water, aboard the Orange TrollerAll lessons are private.

We are unique.  You won’t find Striped Bass Trolling Lessons like ours on the entire East Coast!
