Captain
William Wickers III

Member since April 2016 Key West, United States
Background
Fishing in the Key West waters is the Wickers' family tradition. My grandfather, Capt. Willie, established the Linda D. over 78 years ago, and it's been running strong ever since. I followed my grandfather’s and father’s footsteps, becoming the 4th generation captain in our family. The years of knowledge of seamanship and fishing passed through our family make us the prime choice for fishing in Key West. I've been navigating through these waters since I was a child, meaning I can guide you to the areas where I know the fish love to bite.
