King's Catfishing

I am Captain Tim King owner and founder of King’s Catfishing guide service.

I’m located on Kerr Lake also known as Buggs Island Lake, where multiple world record blue catfish have been caught.

I have made it on the Sportsman Channel multiple times, along with landing a 130LB blue catfish during a guide trip. I have been a diehard fisherman for the last 16 years.

Since I was 14 years old, I have said that I have wanted to be a catfish guide, which I am able to do with the support of my grandfather and wife over the last few years.

A lot of people call catfish trash fish and use stink bait and hotdogs to target large catfish.

Not me, I only use fresh bait on my boat. I use gizzard shad, blue Herring, bream, white perch, and crappie. The fresher the bait the better your chances are landing a trophy blue.

We use only the best equipment available such as rods, reels, line, swivels and precise weights to ensure you get these fish in the boat. With taking kids out as young as 2 and grandparents old as 94 we know how to accommodate almost everyone’s needs.

Boat #1 Our main boat is a 24 FT Angler Qwest equipped with a double bikini top, full enclosure, heater, Monster rod holders, 112 LB GPS trolling motor, Humminbird and Lowrance electronics. On the business end, we have a 200 HP Suzuki and a 9.9 Suzuki kicker motor.

I also have I side mounted grill that we can fire up for lunchtime.

Boat #2 An Excel 23Ft StormCat equipped with a walk-through windshield, bikini top, full enclosure, heater, 112 LB GPS trolling motor, Humminbird, Lowrance and electronics with a 250SS Suzuki to move us on the water.
