4G Guide Service

4G Guide Service and Captain Stevie English welcome you to Cross, South Carolina for a fishing trip to remember. Come and enjoy a day on the Santee Cooper Lakes as you fish and learn the lakes’ history. Captain Stevie is a passionate fourth-generation angler who’ll see that you have as pleasant and fun time on the water as possible. Join him aboard and create lovely memories fishing in South Carolina!

The boat you will be fishing from is a 25’ Crest pontoon powered by a 175 HP Yamaha 2.7 engine. The boat can sit 6 guests and is equipped with an optional enclosure to keep you warm and dry on cold or wet days, state-of-the-art electronics, and a Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor. There’s also an ice-box and a livewell.

Captain Stevie specializes in panfish and Catfish, focusing on Crappie,  Bluegill, Shellcracker, and Catfish. You’ll be fishing vertically, casting, casting, or drifting. You can keep the fish you catch but you’re free to release it if you prefer to. Kids are welcome to join aboard.

The captain will provide you with everything you’ll need to catch fish. The only things you’ll need to bring are the snack and drinks you want to have on the boat, fishing licenses, and maybe a cooler to take fish home in.

Enjoy your day on the water with 4G Guide Service and have lots of fun catching fish!
