Meet Your Expert Guide, Bobby Winters, from Bob's Guide Service Encore

Bob's Guide Service Encore is a family business that has been passed down from one generation to the next. Capt. Bobby inherited the business from his father, Capt. Bob Winters, who started the business back in 1973. Since then, it has become one of the most reputable Santee Cooper fishing guides in South Carolina. 

After spending years fishing with his father, Bobby decided to take over the day-to-day charter operation in March 2018 by getting his license. As a result, he has been able to participate in numerous tournaments and has become an expert at catching monster fish.

Captain Bobby is a seasoned angler who has been fishing various lakes for years. Among the many lakes he frequents, Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie have always been his top choices. He specializes in lake fishing and has mastered different techniques to catch a variety of fish species. In early 2019, Captain Bobby caught his biggest fish yet – a massive 60 lb Catfish, an accomplishment that will be remembered for years to come.

In addition to being an experienced angler and knowledgeable captain, Bobby prides himself on providing exceptional customer service.

Boat Details:

The Bentley Tritoon (Pontoon) is a versatile boat that was originally built in 2006. It has since become a popular choice for lake fishing and SC fishing due to its spacious design and reliable performance. At 25 feet in length, the Tritoon has plenty of room for up to six passengers, making it an ideal option for family outings or group trips.

One of the key features of the Bentley Tritoon is its powerful 115HP Yamaha engine. This allows the boat to easily navigate through choppy waters while providing enough speed to get you where you need to go quickly. Whether you're looking to explore new fishing spots or simply cruise around the lake, this engine won't disappoint.
