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.

Fish Lake Wylie starting at $125.00 with Catfish ON! Guide Service--learn to catch catfish 

Fishing report :  Lake Wylie September 3, 2020

Blue catfish good.  Catching blue cats from 6 to 18 with occasional large fish  to 26 pounds .   Fish are biting well on long sloping main channel and creek points in 12 to 15 feet of water.   Night time 

fishing has been more consistent of late with short  night trips averaging 5 to 10 fish.  Half day trips during the week have been very productive for blue cats, channels and occasional flathead on the drift.  The drift bite has been variable, some times the main creek channels producing better than the main channel and vice versa.  Wind aided drifts have been more productive than slow trolling.

Ebeneezer Park in Rock Hill reports a projected opening date in mid October 2020.  This will greatly reduce stress for folks 

launching and taking out  boats on weekends at the Big Allison ramp.  Ebeneezer park will also feature a brand new fishing pier which is great

for catfish fans in the area.
