|Capt. Mike McDonald with a Winyah Bay trout|
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.
“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.”
