Jeff Riddle

Jeff Riddle and his family have deep roots on Reelfoot Lake and have been guiding and fishing on Reelfoot Lake for over 100 years.  He has been one of the best on Reelfoot Lake for over 30 years and we are proud to have him on the Blue Bank Guide Staff. Jeff also fishes the American Crappie Trail and is the current American Crappie Trail Champion, winning the Super Bowl of the Crappie World. He has also been featured on many magazines and tv articles as well as being on the Pro Staff for Strike King, B'n'M Poles and many others.   

Hunter Shumate

Hunter may be one of the young guns on the Reelfoot Lake but he has been with the resort for 14 years starting out as one of our dock hands and working his way up to being one of our top guides. Growing up on Reelfoot Lake has given him experience beyond his years and he is not only an excellent crappie and bluegill fisherman but one of the best to take you out on a bass fishing trip.  

Jo Hamilton

Jo is one of the newest additions to Blue Bank Resort and like all of our guides here his family also has deep roots here at Reelfoot Lake with Jo being the 5th generation to carry on this tradition.  He is our Bow Fishing Specialists and is always ready to extend your fishing trips into the night time hours.
