Fabulous fishing and great crew

Love these guys. We had a ball, and caught a ton of fish, trolling one day and bottom fishing another day. Can't wait to go again next year.

Captain and mate were first class. They were good in understanding what the customer preferred, flexible, helpful and made for a fun day no matter what level of fishing experience you have.

We were back in Key West with our Anheuser Busch wholesaler group again this year and Captain Billy Wickers delivered another exceptional couple of days of fishing. This was our fourth year, and just when you think it can't get any better, it does. In tough weather conditions, we limited on yellowtail snapper each day, caught grouper, snapper, Wahoo, Kingfish,... More

We usually go out of Ft. Lauderdale but went for the Keys for our annual fishing trip. We'll be coming back! Captain Craig is so easy going and has great stories. First mate, Adam, is great and knows his stuff. What a fun and relaxing time. Do not hesitate to book a day trip with these guys.

If you're looking for a charter boat in Key West, look no further! We booked Linda D for a full day fishing trip and will never book with anyone else. In less than optimal fishing conditions, Captain Billy and his crew made sure to give us the BEST experience we could have hoped for. We limited out on yellow tail,... More

If you don't book with Billy and his team, you are missing out. I have been on a lot of boats in the keys and these guys are the best by far! A great experience the entire time.
