Too Cold to Fish? Not a Chance!
Luckily for me, Capt. Bill has an enclosure on his pontoon boat that allowed us to get out of the wind in between baiting lines and reeling in fish, and I would not recommend going out with a guide who does not have that during a cold winter day. I mean, being cold is one thing, but not having that shelter to warm up in would have made the day downright miserable. But as it was, we had a great day of conversation and caught some nice fish, including the 40-pounder.
Capt. Bill is a great guide to fish with. His pontoon is roomy and well equipped with gear, and he fishes with Abu Garcia 6500 reels matched with Shakespeare Ugly Stick Tiger rods, which are great combos for catfishing. He's also happy to share his fishing tips and does a great job making his guests feel welcome and entertained. And he's been fishing the Santee Cooper Lakes system long enough to know where the catfish are in every season of the year.
