About Your Guide

Captain Bill Captain Bill, a one-of-a-kind fisherman born and raised in Nova Scotia, has been fishing all his life. He holds tuna, shark, lobster, and shrimp licenses. He is deeply invested in protecting the plentiful waters of the North Atlantic, as he fishes almost every day of his life. Like every captain in the WRT Crew, he too is a giant bluefin tuna fanatic, and when he’s not fishing, you can find him managing the best bar in town or riding his legendary motorcycle.

Captain OG Captain OG, a giant bluefin tuna fanatic, is a capable guide with over 25 years of fishing experience under his belt. His passion can be seen through his bachelor’s degree in marine biology as well as his work tagging sandbar sharks and bluefin tuna from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic.

Each time he goes out chasing bluefins, he’s ready for a world record-sized bluefin tuna. His passion and experience are shown through his dedicated research of tuna migratory patterns, the ocean itself, and experimentation with top fishing equipment that you’ll be using throughout your adventure. Every season, while fishing in Nova Scotia, he reels in bluefin tuna weighing over 1000 pounds and is confident that you will too.

When tuna season is over, you can find him high up in the Rocky Mountains enjoying the wildlife, catching trout, listening to Basement Jaxx and Above & Beyond.
