About the Captain

William Townsend
Corpus Christi, Texas, United States
Member since March 2017
3
Captain William Townsend grew up fishing aboard “The Playmate” - his family’s boat. Cruising the waters of Mexico and the Texas Gulf Coast, wading with a fly or spinning rod in his hand, William fell in love with the art of catching and releasing the fish. He got his Captain’s license at the age of 25 and soon after that purchased his first boat. William ran offshore charters and guided inshore anglers through the estuaries of the Emerald Coast. But in 2009, his passion for Redfish and Trout led him back to Texas, where he engaged himself in his love for fishing, art, and design.
