“Freedom Alliance is a charity that supports our military and their families. Each year, we host a few retreats at Lake Lanier for wounded veterans and one of our favorite activities is striper fishing with Captain Tim Solyst - The Striper Guy! The success of these excursions are evaluated by three measures: camaraderie, safety, and catching fish. Captain Tim knocks it out of the park on all three! His enthusiasm for catching fish is contagious and his social personality puts the anglers at ease from the moment they step onboard. His knowledge of Lake Lanier fishing gives the client the best opportunity to watch rod after rod bend toward the water! We highly recommend booking Captain Tim Solyst for your next angling adventure on Lake Lanier!”

"Tim spends a lot of time on the water. I know because I own Sherry’s Bait & Barbecue on the north side of Lake Lanier and he is typically the first one in the door getting bait several times a week. I’ve referred many customers to him for Striper fishing charters and have heard a lot of great feedback. In addition to people thanking me for hooking them up with Tim, I’ve overheard customers sharing their great experience with other customers while having lunch. I have been out catching stripers with the Tim several times. His boat is always super clean and his equipment is top notch. I would highly recommend a day on the lake with the Striper Guy."

"This was our family’s first trip to Georgia and we wanted to fish on lake Lanier. We were fortunate to hear about "The Striper Guy". Tim was such a fun guide. He was knowledgeable about the lake and it's history. We were able to participate as hands on (or not!) as each of us wanted. We caught lots of stripers, large mouth bass and a two-pound crappie! This was an incredible experience and I hope I will be able to join his excursion again in the future. Thank you for the beautiful memories Tim!!"

  • "I’ve known Captain Tim for close to 30 years and we worked together in the hospitality industry for over 20 years. I’ve never met anyone more professional or attentive to detail than Tim. If you want to ensure a successful corporate event or just a good old successful day on the lake, Captain Tim is the man to call. Not only will he put you On the fish, he’ll help you put them in the boat."
