Bulls Bay Boats and Gul-R-Boy Charters

Fisherman want more features than ever on their boats, but the folks making Bulls Bay boats decided to keep their design simple and functional. Their main focus is to keep the price reasonable so that the hard working folks of the Lowcountry can afford to have an all-purpose 17-foot watercraft. These boats are made in Walterboro right at the Pioneer Boats warehouse near I-95 and Henry Sikes is their point man on promoting this new line of Bulls Bay boats.

Captain Mike McDonald, (843)520-6339, was born and raised in Georgetown and he has been a fishing guide there for 21 years. His Gul-R-Boy Charter Service is known far and wide and when I asked him about the best time to fish he replied to just come on and let him  worry about that. Meaning that whether the tide was rising or falling, he knows which fishing spots to visit near the Belle Island public boat ramp where most of his charters depart from. He has a 115-horsepower Mercury Opti-Max motor, which is the maximum recommended for the 17-foot bay boat.
Made in Walterboro, S.C.

“When Henry called me about the Bulls Bay boats being built, I drove right up to Pioneer in Walterboro to come take a look at one,” said McDonald. “It looked like a perfect fit for me and he was willing to customize the center console to accommodate some extra fishing rods, so I just about drove it home that day. That was May of 2014 so I have had it for a year now, and find it to be a good fishing platform.”
