About Your Guide

Captain Will grew up catching grouper and redfish in the panhandle of Florida. After college, he moved down to Sarasota for an engineering career in the Marine Industry. Since obtaining a USCG Master’s License he decided to help introduce others to the sport of fishing that has influenced his entire life.
