About Reelfoot Fish, Fur, and Fowl
RF3 is a one-of-a-kind ultimate experience on Reelfoot Lake. John and Shawn have put together a truly private, exclusive hunting and fishing lodge the likes of which you'll find nowhere else. Because they've thought through all of the details for you - from the comfortable bedrooms, high-speed WiFi, and the state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, to the nostalgic ambiance and spectacular views - all you have to do is bring your group - large or small - and relax in comfort in a rustic, down-home atmosphere. After the day's activities, lounge with your friends and recall the highlights of your experience, shoot some pool, gather 'round the poker tables, or just stretch out and enjoy sports events on the four massive TVs scattered around the pleasant great room. It's just plain fun here at RF3.
Shawn Gobble lives his passion. A life-long fisherman and hunter since his granddaddy took him rabbit hunting when he was six, Shawn has turned those delightful, fond memories into a professional vocation. A true angling and hunting authority known throughout West Tennessee, Shawn discovered Reelfoot Lake more than a decade ago and was entranced by the beauty, serenity, and tranquility of the rippling waters, not to mention the wonderfully incredible amounts of bluegill, crappie, and other fish.
Becoming increasingly familiar with the nuances of fishing Reelfoot, Shawn learned his way around the cypress trees and "knees", lily pads, and ditches, all the while locating beds of crappie and bluegill as he went. Realizing he wanted to be on Reelfoot Lake year-round, Shawn teamed up with John Fagan and together they have created a fishing and hunting paradise- Reelfoot Fish, Fur, and Fowl.
By his own admission, John has spent his entire life on the fish-laden waters of Reelfoot Lake gaining intimate knowledge of the "hows, whats, and wheres" of hauling in the limit.
Known far and wide as one of the finest, most intuitive guides on the Lake when it comes to finding fish, John has trolled the nooks, crannies, and "knees" of Reelfoot for over 30 years and has proven time and again, "When you're fishing with John, you won't get 'skunked', no sir!"
Beginning in 1996, John began guiding exclusively for Gray's Camp and became the proprietor of Gray's in 2005. Now that he and Shawn have created a sportsmen's paradise with RF3, you know that you're going to have a superb expedition. Do you want the best guide on Reelfoot? Spend a day with John and he'll school you in the techniques necessary to catch the limit!
