About Your Guide
Captain Billy, as everyone knows him by, should have been born with gills.
Since his youth, Billy has been fishing in the bass ponds of Maryland and all along the Eastern Shore. He remembers fondly navigating out of Ocean City, Maryland as a teenager, catching Bluefish by the 55-gallon drum.

Billy attended High Point University in North Carolina on a soccer scholarship and, after earning his four-year degree, he came to Florida to begin his business career. During his years of working as a Senior Vice President with companies like Tire Kingdom, Goodyear, and Pep Boys, one thing that has never changed is Billy’s passion for fishing. Billy honed many of his fishing skills in Palm Beach County, where he fished competitively both inshore and offshore. He’s also competed in tournaments like FLW, B.A.S.S., Redman, and Redfish Tour and loves fishing locations like Lake Okeechobee, Florida Bay and Biscayne Bay. After twenty-eight years of fishing the Florida waters, Captain Billy knows the fish’s habits and routines extremely well.
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, Billy understands your perfect day begins at the dock. As you prepare to depart, he will describe the day based on your expectations. Being out on the Florida Keys waters is all-encompassing, an absolute paradise, and it’s your captain’s second home. Reeling in fish, like the ones you see on television or seeing the world from underwater, your trip will be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. From dock to done, fervent fishing to frolicking, for Captain Billy, it all boils down to the love of the chase.

Billy was so accommodating. We had a day booked with him but wanted to also snorkel. He switched days with us so we were able to do both. Very laid back, good conversation, very clean and nice boat ride. Would book anytime with captain Billy.
