Another great trip with Captain Bill Willis at Lost Bay Guide Service. I can’t say enough about this man and his knowledge of fishing! While other boats around us were waiting for the reds to surface, Captain Bill was able to put us on the fish using his years of experience and faultless equipment. We had an amazing trip landing these giant bull reds.

Captain did a great job, we didn’t catch a lot of fish but Mother Nature was working against us.
Planning another trip in November when the red fish are moving.
