If you’re wanting to go out and rip some salt water fish lips Captain Billy is the man for the job. Me and my boys went out and with 5 minutes of our hooks being in the water we had fish in the boat.

Captain Billy is a blast to fish with, we caught a ton of fish and just had a great time on our charter with him. Can't wait to fish with him again!

Took my son in laws fishing with Captain Billy. Great time, really nice guy to fish with. Made sure my son in laws had the trip of their lifetimes. If you want to fish in Panama City Beach, Billy at Bloodline is your man to make it happen.

Captain Billy was great! Took out my family today and all had a blast catching Spanish Mackerel and Sheepshead.
