Wild Mullet Charters

No matter whether it’s offshore or inshore, Captain Will make sure you have a great day on the fish. Wild Mullet Charters will provide the perfect environment for your family and friends, giving you the experience of a lifetime.

His love of all bodies of water is apparent during his trips, and his ability to get you on the fish fast is coupled with his enthusiasm as well as his 225 hp engine on his 23-foot Mako 221 boat. She is a smooth ride, and will get you out to the Gulf quickly and effortlessly. Her T-top is larger than most, to make sure all of the anglers in your party are covered and ready for their fishing adventure.

His gear is just like his boat, exceptional and showcasing some of the best technological advances in the fishing industry. He uses as low as a 6 lb test line on a Penn 4200, and can catch Barracuda and Kingfish regularly on this. For the regular Joe out there, this translates as him using very light and strong line to catch very big fish.

When it comes to finding the fish, his local knowledge and new fish finding equipment will find all bottom fish such as Grouper and Snapper, as well as Tuna and Kingfish - you only need to worry about reeling them in!

Remember to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and any snacks you feel like. Fishing license is included, so all that’s left to do is book today!

At the age of 5 Capt. Will moved to Sarasota and went fishing for the first time. From that first bite, he was hooked. He has learnt everything he can about the conservation of the ecosystem in South Florida, as well as the marine life in his area. He is happy to share this knowledge with all his customers, especially those new to fishing.
