Fishin' Adventures

Fishin’ Adventures is a full-time, year-round Bass fishing guide service operated by Captain William Rogers. Having been a passionate angler his entire life, Captain William got engaged in tournament fishing during his high school time. He has waited his entire life to become a full-time Bass fishing guide and is eager to share his angling passion with others. You’ll have the chance to learn about seasonal pattern fishing, deep water fishing, electronics, and have accommodations arranged on request. Join him in Summerton, South Carolina and let him take you on a memorable lake fishing trip!

Your journey starts on a 21’ Ranger Bass boat that can sit up to 2 guests. It runs on a 250 HP Mercury engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 65 knots. It uses one GPS and four Lowrance HDS 12 fishfinder systems for efficient navigation. The boat has also got a Minn Kota Ultrex wireless trolling motor, an ice-box to store your fish and drinks, and a livewell to supply you with live bait.

Captain William will take you to the beautiful Lakes Santee Cooper, Marion, and Moultrie where you will chase prized Largemouth Bass. While you will have to release the fish you catch, you can pick the best one and keep it. You’re free to bring kids on your trip and keep in mind that alcohol and smoking are not allowed while on board.

Captain William will provide you with all the fishing gear, lures, as well as drinks for your trip. Just bring fishing licenses and some snacks before you depart, and you will be all set.

Come aboard and let Fishin’ Adventures take you on a trip of a lifetime!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Captain William has always enjoyed fishing. Both freshwater and saltwater. By the time he was 12, he became passionate about Bass fishing. He started fishing club tournaments while in high school and then the new Operation Bass Redman Tournament Trail after college. The captain has extensively studied Largemouth and Spotted Bass and their forage, which makes him an expert in the species' movements and their habitats. He didn't stop there, while living in Myrtle Beach, he had to challenge and study the big Redfish in the Little River and Murrells Inlets. Captain William is an extremely diverse angler. The captain also makes and paints almost all of the baits he fishes with. While a full-time Law Enforcement officer, Captain William managed to fish the FLW Tour as a Co-Angler in 2011 and qualified for the Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Lanier in 2012. He has recently retired after a career in Law Enforcement. He loves teaching people to fish and wants to take you on a Fishin' Adventure!
