About the Captain

Member since February 2017
Born and raised along the gulf coast, i have been fishing my whole life . My grandfather has taught me 90 % of everything i know. As a young kid my PaPa used to take me fishing with him everywhere he went .Since his pass i have really set fourth the effort to become not only a great fisherman but a great teacher. i love nothing more than seeing a kid get fired up because he caught his first fish or mom and dad so excited they begin to tear up . I love fishing but even more than that i love introducing people to fishing and making sure they're having a great time while aboard !

Booked a deep sea fishing trip for my boyfriends birtbday. It was both of our first time fishing and Capt. Will was extremely helpful and patient all throughout the day. Caught some king mackerel and did some catch and release with amberjacks. Capt. Will made this an unforgettable experience and we will treasure these memories for years to come. Definitely made us want to go again!

Good trip but the weather didn’t cooperate. Just as we got into the fish, had to run back inshore to beat the storms. Captain knows how to find and catch fish. We found some huge amberjacks we hadn’t expected and Captain Will did everything our light tackle would allow to hook up. As soon as he could get hooked up, he was quick to hand the rod to one of my boys for the fight. My 12 year old landed a large ‘cuda and my 17 year old stumbled into a large red snapper that we couldn’t keep. Once the weather turned, we made a fast run into the bay and Capt. Will quickly rigged up for bay fishing where we had some success. The boat was clean and fast and Capt. Will was on time and easy to fish with. It Is obvious that he loves to fish and share his knowledge.
