Captain Willie’s Charters is owned and operated by Captain Willie Howard who is one of the most fun and caring people you will ever meet. He loves taking his guests on trips off of West Palm Beach and into the dazzling blue offshore waters of the Atlantic, showing you the riches of these fishing grounds.
Along with his team of professional fishermen, he’ll be able to guide and teach you anything you need to know about catching a targeted fish, and will make sure you have fun while learning. The crew is very child-friendly, but let them know in advance so they can customize the trip to make it age-appropriate.
You’ll fish aboard a stunning 31’ Contender center console, that can fit up to 4 guests. A light yet agile vessel, she’ll speed off to the productive fishing grounds, and is perfectly adept in the choppy offshore waters too. She boasts a GPS, VHF radio, and a fishfinder, so rest assured you’ll reach the sweet spots with ease.
Capt. Willie will provide all the rods and reels, along with live bait, to make sure you have the edge over all the fish. He’ll take you into the beautiful crystal blue waters of the Atlantic and, depending on the season, you’ll be able to target various species at the same time.
In the spring and fall, you’ll look to get your fill of delicious Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Mutton Snapper, and King Mackerel. While in the winter months, you can fish for Bluefish, Blacktip Shark, Spanish Mackerel, and the attractive Sailfish. Whenever you come aboard, you’re in for a treat, so settle in for a thrilling fishing adventure with plenty of rewards to take back to shore.
Everything you need for a productive trip awaits you on board, and Capt. Willie will even provide plenty of soft drinks, water, and snacks. Bring your own lunch aboard on full-day trips, but make sure not to fill up, as the crew will clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day.
Come aboard Captain Willie’s Charters and discover the riches of the Atlantic like a pro!
