About the Captain

Wilkin Lane
Port St Joe, Florida, United States
Member since May 2015
Captain Wilkin started working on saltwater trips in the Panhandle in 2012, when he supervised diving trips. In 2013 he got his captain's license and started running his own business. As he had been saltwater fishing ever since childhood, it made sense for Captain Wilkin to follow his passion and run his own fishing charter guide service. Thus, Reef Donkey Charters was born, and now Wilkin is overjoyed to call his passion his profession.

We had a good time.  Wilkin is a nice guy and knows where to catch fish.  He was a little disorganized and we understood this was because he switched boats.  We will fish with him again.

Three of us had a very good time aboard a beautiful boat with a friendly captain. Wilkins gave my wife and daughter tips on casting and reeling in and pointed out sea life that passed by our boat. We all caught fish and the weather was beautiful. Only thing that could have been better was to catch a variety of fish. Only type we caught was Sea Trout.

Capt Wilkin was very accomplished at his craft…even at a young age. He related with both my sons well, and gave pointers when needed. His vessel is “top shelf” and is perfect for getting to the holes that no one else can reach. I look forward to my next trip out with him, and would highly recommend his services to anyone searching for a great day of fishing.
