“We don’t offer the best price. We offer the best experience.” Captain Bill Willis’s motto rings true: he has grown a reputation for providing productive fishing trips with high catch rates aboard top quality vessels. His extremely large and loyal circle of repeat customers would not hesitate to agree that his trips are worth every penny.

The boats belonging to Lost Bay Guide Service have the best and most up to date tools for the job. The new 24’ Skeeter is equipped with Lowrance HDS touch screen electronics as well as a GPS and VHF radio to assist the captain with putting you on fish.

Whether you’re planning to fish inshore or offshore, this boat will provide a comfortable, dry ride. All fishing equipment will be provided on the trip and consists of Star and Key Largo custom spinning rods with Shimano Stradic reels and Skeet Reese casting rods with Johnny Morris Signature series reels.

Inshore trips will involve fishing for Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Flounder, Mackerel, and Grouper. Capt. Bill covers the area from Pensacola, Florida, to Mobile Bay, Alabama and always keeps a close eye on where the fish are biting in the area. Offshore charters travel up to nine miles out to target Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Mackerel, and Grouper.

Capt. Bill is an IGFA certified captain who is a member of the Coastal Conservation Association and the Orange Beach Fishing Association. He has fished professionally on the IFA Redfish Tour, using the extensive knowledge that he has acquired over 25 years fishing in the area.

With two boys of his own, Capt. Bill is passionate about teaching young anglers how to get the most out of each fishing trip. Don’t hesitate to bring your kids with you and make some amazing new family memories!

The fleet consists of three captains: Capt. Bill, Capt. Johnny and Capt. Jake. All three have a lot of knowledge and experience to share with you, so make sure to book today for a trip of a lifetime!
