We had a GREAT Charter trip! We caught lots of fish, found some sea shells, saw dolphins, learned about the area & More! Highly recommended!
Guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable with the area and the different types of fish we were catching that morning. We had 4 of us guys that give each other harassment all morning and the guide was right in there to joke around. Caught a nice assortment of fish kept a few for a meal and he cleaned them for us. Good dude hooked alot of LIPS…. …
Captain Billy was the best. Very accommodating. Great boat. Great fishing spots. Will be back.
My wife and I had a great time! Billy started our trip by teaching us how to catch the bait we would use (this was extra time we didn’t expect so it was a bonus!). This also allowed more time for a boar ride/cruise. After getting our bait we fished for 4 hours. It was fantastic and Billy was quick to provide tips as well as help untangle lines and bait the hook when needed. We caught a few different species of fish and also saw dolphins and a manatee. Would recommend him to friends/family. …
My father-in-law and I had a great morning fishing with captain Billy. After a slower start at the first spot, we really hit the fish hard around the 2 hour mark. Super nice and friendly guy, very knowledgeable and patient with all our non-floridian fishing questions
This trip was kinda like going with a buddy and his son. Captain Billy and his son Justin were great. We caught fish, and because Billy didn’t think it was enough due to the red tide issues, we got to try a couple more spots! My wife and daughter really enjoyed themselves and they could care less about fishing. my son is a midwestern bass fisherman and he too had a great time just getting to experience fishing the shallows. Justin definitely earned his tip, the trip was great and lived up to our expectations! …
My daughter loves to go fishing so we booked an afternoon with Captain Billy. He didn’t disappoint. He took us to Captiva and Sanibel Islands where we caught some Sheepshead, Black Drum, Snapper, a gag Grouper and Snook. And we got to watch some pesky Dolphins looking to make an easy meal of our catch. Captain Billy’s local knowledge of where to fish and for what made our afternoon both productive and fun, We caught 15 fish in total. While not all were keepers, Captain Billy expertly flayed our keepers when we docked. While it was a cool day, it made for chilly ride out but it was worth all the fun we had. As I told Captain Billy when we Docked, I play to use him again next December when we come back. Thanks again Captain Billy or a fun afternoon of fishing. …
