About Us Don't be fooled by imitators! Fish with the most experienced guide on Lake Norman. Ty 1 on Fishing Guide Service owned and operated by Ty Mathis.
Ty Mathis began fishing on Lake Norman at the young age of four with his father and grandfather and has been going strong ever since. He started a full-time guide business in 1982 and has the best reputation and most knowledge for catching lots of fish, including the big ones! You can see Ty in action on OLN television network along with Ernie Irvan, host of the fishing show "On The Pole", which features Nascar drivers.
Ty specializes in striped bass, but also catches large-mouth, catfish, white perch, and white bass. He furnishes all the equipment. All you need to bring is your fishing license. His 23-foot bay boats or his 21-foot flat bottom boat can accommodate small or large groups. He also has corporate charters available. Ty provides services to those with learning disabilities, or physical limitations and has wheel chair accessibility.
Ty fishes 12 months out of the year on the following lakes: Lake Norman, Lookout, MT. Island, Hickory, and Rhodhiss. Trips are also available in Tennessee if you are interested in trophy size fish ranging from 20 to 40 lbs. No matter if the weather is hot, cold, rainy, or dry, fishing is great all-year round.
Ty offers 1/2 day, 3/4 day, or full day fishing trips. To maximize your fishing time, you will meet at the closest boat landing near your site/location of fishing. This depends entirely on which lake and the season.
