Bowdler Guide Service

Cleve Cemetery Road
Batesburg SC, United States

Join Captain Andrew Bowlder of Bowlder’s Guide Service for a day of fishing for great eating and hard fighting Striped Bass. Located in mid South Carolina, Bowlder’s Guide Service has access to four lakes in the local area, which host great fishing not only for Striped Bass, but also Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Catfish.

You will be fishing aboard a newly built 21 ft Carolina Skiff that can accommodate up to five guests in comfort. Fitted with a T Top for shade and with plenty of storage for your belongings, the boat is ideal for a fun day on the water. It also features everything you need for a productive lake fishing adventure, with GPS, fishfinder, radar and VHF radio on board, as well as a trolling motor, anchoring system and downriggers.

All the equipment you will need for your day of fishing is included in the price, and the captain will gladly clean and fillet any fish you decide to keep at the end of the day free of charge.
