About Bush Hog

My name is Eric Ashley,

but my friends call me "Bush Hog" or "Hog Man."

Born locally in Paducah, I grew up hunting and fishing and have spent time on each major lake and river in the area. I have been hunting and fishing for over 30 years.

I have been guiding since 2012.

Regardless of species, I put the time in to find the fish and game my customers are after.

If you are looking for a sophisticated man, I am not your guy...

However, if you are looking for someone who will work hard to make your time as productive as possible, then lets get started!





At LLGS, I fish for white bass, yellow bass, bluegill, and crappie. I even manage to pick up a few catfish along the way. I do not target largemouth or smallmouth bass, but catch them often while targeting other species.

Fishing is usually done from mid March through October, with the weather and water conditions dictating it all.

I target the most productive fish at the time as the seasons change. I try my best to have more than one option for my clients, as you never know what conditions you will have on any given day. I specialize in fish for the frying pan, and do my best to ensure that you go home with a good mess of fish to eat.

I fish out of a 20 foot Stratos boat, and use Lowrance equipment. Life jackets are provided for everyone on board. I supply all the bait and tackle and ensure that all equipment is in good working order. All you will need is your fishing license!

All fish are cleaned and packaged for your convenience.

At LLGS, I do not allow any gps tracking devices or phone apps designed for tracking. I also do not allow follow boats. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause

Diver Hunts

Diver hunts are on a limited basis and for

a maximum of two (2) people.

All hunts will take place on the banks of Kentucky, and Barkley Lake.

Hunts are geared for the individuals looking to experience their first diver hunt, with the advantage of not having to drive to the Great Lakes to do it. The big water our lakes provide, makes for an ideal stopping point for migrating birds. One has the chance to take home a trophy to the taxidermist!

All hunts are fully guided with me and my trusty sidekick, Lucy.

(That's her in the picture!)

Each hunt will end at 2pm, or when a limit is reached. All hunts require correct license and permits.

While these hunts are limited, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.




I want to be your full service guide.

I have a soft spot in my heart for kids, and encourage you to get them involved with the outdoors.

If you have, or know of, a child with a desire for the outdoors but no opportunity, or a child with impairment, who wants to hunt or fish, please give me a call regardless of the season.

I know that sometimes it's hard for parents to find the opportunities to get their children in the outdoors. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Taking time to be with our children is the most important thing we can do.
