Your fishing guide

Catfish ON! Guide Service featured on the cover of NC Sportsman January 2013 with feature on "Catch Winter Cats!"


Capt Taylor will take up to 4 anglers on his 21 foot Voyager pontoon specifically outfitted for catfish angling.  The boat is adequately powered by a dependable Yamaha 90 HP 4 stroke outboard and Minn Kota Co Pilot trolling motor for controlled drift fishing/trolling.  We will be able to fish shallow or deep, wherever the bite is happening.   Latest electronics:  Lowrance HDS 9 Live with GPS mapping.  Stout Driftmaster rodholders make bite detection very easy.   There is a Sunbrella bimini top for comfort in the sun or rain.
