About Us

Bob Winters began guiding on the Santee Cooper Lakes in 1979 and continued a successful career until July of 2000, when cancer took its toll on him and Captain Bob stopped guiding professionally. Although not guiding over the last 18 years he continued to fish regularly and groom his son Bobby as a guide. Today Captain Bob and recently licensed Captain Bobby are offering their combined expertise and physical capabilities as Bob’s Guide Service Encore. Bobby is a recent Newberry College graduate and ready to take over the business entirely by January 01, 2019.

Here at Bob’s Guide Service Encore we pledge to give you a great 8-9 hour fishing experience, in a wholesome atmosphere on a comfortable 25 ft. tritoon boat, with high quality electronics and tackle. We guarantee an all out effort to put you on the fish.

We fish for catfish and/or stripers and are one of only a few guide services willing to split the day between stripers and catfish. There is a $50.00 upcharge for striper fishing to offset the cost of live bait.

We provide everything you need for a full day’s fishing, except your license and what you want to eat or drink while on the tritoon. We fish out of Blacks Camp and Captain Carl Levine. Will clean your fish at days end, for $1.50 per fish up to a 20 pounder.

We look forward to serving you and thank you for visiting our website!
