Wild Bill Sport Fishing
Wild Bill Sportfishing runs offshore fishing trips out of Key West. Whether you want to explore the Gulf waters or the Atlantic side of Florida coast, you got it. Will Bill Sportfishing is exactly the type of charter you need to scout around these fisheries. With an experienced captain, a stable big boat, and rich waters around reefs and further out, your day will be a spot on.
At the helm of the Wild Bill Sportfishing you will find Captain Art. He started fishing at the age of three, and has been exploring the waters of Key West for over 18 years. Wild Bill has been cruising and running fishing trips for over a decade. Capt. Art has tested the waterways from Alaska to Costa Rica in his sport fishing career. He and his First Mate Stevie have worked together for over 13 years, catering to anglers of all skillsets, from novices to accomplished professionals.
Wild Bill is a 34’ Crusader powered by 350HP Cummins engine with a maximum passenger capacity of six anglers. The boat is furnished with standard navigational and fish finding technology, including a Garmin GPS, fish finder and VHF radio. It features a toilet on board, as well as outriggers, a live bait well, and a fighting chair.
Depending on the season, you’ll be able to target a variety of offshore forage, including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish and many others.
The local reefs and wrecks also provide lots of sportfishing potential, dominated by Barracuda, Mackerel, Jacks, sharks and a large Snapper and Grouper variety. Shark fishing trips can also be made available per request.
The captain will supply all the necessary gear. On board tackle mainly consists of rods and reels by Penn International, Shimano as well as Ugly Stick, with several custom rods available as well. Artificial bait as well as live bait (if available) are included in the price, along with bottled water and a complimentary filleting of the fish you catch. Bring a camera, pack snacks and food, and come for a fun day out.

Great day if fishing! Steady fish on the line catching King, Tuna, Bonito and Baracuda. The mate did a great job keeping the lines in the water. Will take the trip again on our next trip.

Great time had all around, and fish caught by everyone in the group! In just a half day trip we caught 4 King Mackerel and 1 barracuda (which was thrown back). After getting back to the dock they filleted the Mackerel for us, which we took to have cooked at Half Shell Raw Bar (highly recommend) and everyone was satisfied. Definitely recommend Captain Art and Brandy, they know where the fish bite and how to make the most of a trip! Thanks again!
