Hill Guide Services, Captain John Gary Hill, Cell: 704-473-4827, NC Home 704-739-7838 or Santee 843-351-4928 more than 30 plus years of fishing experience, USCG Fishing Guide offering year round charter catfishing trips on the Santee Cooper Lakes and rivers in South Carolina. Lake Moultrie, Lake Marion, Diversion Canal, Re-Diversion Canal and the Congaree, Wateree, and Santee Rivers. We fish year round day and night trips. Fishing times vary with season and conditions. Contact me today for fishing dates and the latest fishing report- night trip availability dates are limited. 704-473-4827.
Our fishing charter includes 8 hours on water, rods, reels, bait, and tackle, fuel and guide services. Our rates are competitive with other charter guides. Fish cleaning and packing are available but not included in rates. If you plan to take fish home whole bring a 120-150 qt cooler for transporting them.
You will need to provide your fishing license to fish, clothing and rain gear for the season, drinks, and snacks for a day of fishing. You can get your fishing licenses when you get here.
I can also help you with information about the Santee Cooper lakes area in Friends Links .
My fishing style and philosophy go something like this: I believe fresh bait is the key to consistency catching fish in all fishing situations. I like to keep my baits alive until they are ready to put on a hook. catching bait is not part of your fishing trip. I will have what I think is the most productive bait for the season on the boats when you board. I like perch, bream, mullet, herring, shad, catalpa worms and grasshoppers as my primary baits but I am always open to try other things that work.
A majority of my fishing is drifting to catch the big catfish so that's why we fish from our 30 ft Crest HP tri-toon when we fish the open waters of Santee, the Diversion Canal, or the Re-diversion Canal.
At times of the year when catfishing the Congaree, Wateree, and Santee rivers are productive, we will catfish from a 20 ft Sea- Ark Jet super jon boat.
We are handicap accessible. If you have a special need for your fishing trip please call me and I will try to work out whatever is necessary to make you and your party comfortable. Ladies and young people are always welcome.
Come on aboard our boats and Meet the Captain. Capt John Gary Hill
