Fat 2na Willy's Fishing Charters

Fat 2na Willy’s Fishing Charters offers a range of exciting trips out of Hyannis, Massachusetts. With a great boat and an experienced crew, they are ready to tackle the best fish of the season and have the flexibility to help you achieve that catch of a lifetime.

Their 42’ Bruno Downeast-style boat is docked in Hyannis harbor. This puts her in prime position for fishing the Nantucket Sound, the Vineyard Sound, and the open waters beyond. The Boat is powered by a reliable John Deere engine which keeps her cruising along at a respectable pace, even with 6 guests and a ton of equipment onboard.

There sure is plenty of equipment. The boat has a full array of Garmin electronics to pinpoint the best spots around. She has outriggers for that perfect trolling spread and a livewell for the freshest live bait if you’re using it. She also has an enclosed head, keeping you comfortable even on long trips offshore.

Fat 2na Willy’s Fishing Charters targets a range of species, from Striped Bass and Bluefish to huge Bluefin Tuna and fearsome Mako Sharks. They provide both light and heavy tackle so you can take on any of these species with confidence. They’re happy to teach you how to jig, drift fish, troll, and bottom fish like a pro.

Rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price of the charter, and the crew will also clean and bag your catch when you get back to the dock. Please note that there will be an additional charge for live bait. Other than that, just step aboard and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!



About the Captain

Member since September 2016
Captain Brian “Willy” Wilson got his first fishing rod as a gift at the age of five, and he has never looked back since. This gift ignited a passion in him that has grown throughout his life, from being a boy spending all the daylight hours fishing with his friends, to operating his own boat as a teenager, to fishing commercially for Striped Bass as a young man. Willy got his Captain’s license in 2013 and since then has been able to share his enthusiasm for spending time on the water with guests aboard his boat. For him, fishing is far more than just a job: it is a way of life.
