Meet Captain William Rogers

Meet Captain William Rogers, A 20 year veteran fishing guide from South Carolina

Captain William Rogers operates and owns Fishin' Adventures, a full-time, year-round Bass fishing guide service. Captain William has been an avid fisherman all of his life and started competing in fishing tournaments in high school. He's eager to share his passion of angling with others and has waited his entire life to work as a full-time bass fishing guide.

Captain William is an expert on the movements and habitats of Largemouth and Spotted Bass because of his considerable research into the species' prey. He continued on, having to study and analyze the large Redfish in the Little River and Murrells Inlets while living in Myrtle Beach. Captain William is a really exceptional angler. You’ll have the chance to learn about seasonal pattern fishing, deep water fishing, and electronics, and have accommodations arranged on request. Join him in Summerton, South Carolina, and let him take you on a memorable lake fishing trip!

Almost all of his fishing lures are also his own creations and design. Captain William managed to participate on the FLW Tour as a co-angler in 2011 and secure a spot in the Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Lanier in 2012. He did this while working as a full-time law enforcement officer. After working as a law enforcement officer, he recently retired. He is eager to take you on a Fishin' Adventure because he likes to teach people how to fish!
