Your fishing guide

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

Rodger Taylor

USCG certified OUPV


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.


Fishing report :  Lake Wylie  May 27, 2021

Blue catfish Lake Wylie:  Fair-fishing is tougher now due to the spawn.  Still catching a few fish in the 12-24 range anchored on vertical breaks in the lake 10 to 15 fow.  Water temps to upper 70’s approaching 80.

Lake Wateree Blue Catfish:  Large fish also in spawning patterns  and slow catch rates.  Very good bite of smaller “eater size” cats lots of fun to catch on the drift. Water temps in low 80’s

gizzard Shad plentiful on Lake Wateree most coves and some in the main channel 4-6 inch size

Crappie: fair mostly small with occasional spawned out slab

Bluegill: close to bedding/update to follow
