Member since January 2017
Captain Billy Meyerdirk grew up in Key West, Florida. His love for fishing started at the young age of 11 when he caught his first Wahoo. Billy has extensively fished the waters all over the lower latitudes and soon after the 2006 Rolex/IGFA Bill fishing tournament in Cabo San Lucas, he decided to turn his passion into his job. His roots led him to Florida. Captain Billy then found the boat, the marina, and the team he wanted. He brought his vast knowledge and the experience he had gained from 40 years of fishing to his company. Billy is now the owner of a sucessful business, a father of a son, and a happy fisherman.
