About the Captain

William Pugh
Destin, Florida, United States
Member since February 2016
I grew up fishing in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. As a small child, I would go out with my Dad who was a commercial fisherman. “The warm, emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico slip into the deep, cobalt blue waters. This often occurs within a very close proximity to shore. Year round fishing is excellent!” I have been seen on the TV under "Gary Finch Outdoors" where we hit the big Amberjacks. Please visit his website for more information. We specialize in catching big fish with light tackle. Come take my boat out for a visit with the big ones!

We had an excellent experience. Two of our guys had not fished in the ocean. They both caught fish and we had enough for our
Family dinner that evening. Captain William made it a memorable day. We are looking forward to next year. If you are a Beginner or experienced Angler Captain William will put you on fish.

Capt William and his deckhand Chance are great people.  I am a repeat customer who enjoys their company.  Captain William is an honest and ethical fisherman. If you don’t limit out on your fish its either because you didn’t listen to him or there was extenuating circumstances.  Yesterdays trip yielded a limited out boat full of snapper and king mackerel.  My goto guy. Make him yours too!
