Background
I’m Capt. Billy Pettigrew the owner and operator of Com’ N’ Getit Fishing Charters. I grew up in Ormond Beach FL, and now reside in Port Orange FL. I developed a passion for fishing at a very young age, while fishing with my grandfather, who always had time to take me fishing and shrimping. I’m the proud father of a daughter who I cherish dearly. I am an avid redfish tournament angler that travels from FL, GA, LA, and SC. When I’m not out on the water with a customer, or tournament fishing, I love taking my daughter out for a great day on the water.
Techniques
I have over 30 years of experience fishing the inshore waters of Volusia County. I have many years of experience identifying fishing patterns, and locating fish. My expertise is not limited to redfish, but includes many species found in our area.

We had a super time, were well entertained by Captain Billy and caught many more fish than we ever expected. Billy gave us a proper education about fishing and cooking of the fish as well. We had 4 beautiful red drum which we cooked up on the BBQ, following Captain Billy’s instructions and the 4 of us and some of our neighbours truly enjoyed the meal. An exceptional day that is not over yet. We highly recommend Captain Billy for a very enjoyable day of fishing.

We had a great time with Captain Billy Pettigrew. We come to Florida every year and also take a fishing trip every year. . we have been deep sea fishing in Ft Lauderdale. . bass fishing at Disney. . but this was the best experience we have had.  Not only is Captain Billy a great guide, he is a outstanding fisherman and really has a sense where the fish are active.
