My wife and I had a great morning trip out with captain Bill. The weather was perfect, the boat was in good condition and we caught fish. We ended up having a great lunch with our catch which Captain Bill cleaned for us. Would go again for sure! Thanks Captain Bill!

We had one of the best days ever. Hats of to Capitan Bill for his knowledge, experience and patience. Capitan made the trip unforgettable. We caught so many fishes we couldn't cope with the numbers. Not only enjoyed but also fall in love with fishing. Don't hesitate, get in touch with Capitan Bill to make some memories.

I have been fishing with Captain Walsh 5 times over the last 20 years and each trip is as rewarding as the last. Sometimes we catch a lot of fish other times when the fishing is slow we go shelling. This most recent trip was highlighted by the number of fish we caught and a lot more strikes that we... More

I looked at loads of charters and so glad I went with this one. Bill was knowledgeable happy to find a better fishing spot, patient and un rushed particularly with someone as out of practice as me. Excellent patient advice on technique . Boat was comfortable and very safe with more than enough equipment . His price was extremely reasonable.... More

We had a great time shelling, sightseeing, and fishing. We have two children ages 7 and 9 and Captain Bill's tour had something for everyone. We started by going to an island that had almost no one on it, so the shelling was great. Everyone enjoyed that very much. We did some fishing after the shelling, and Captain Bill was... More

We have two younger children who wanted to fish while we were visiting Marco Island. At the marina we weren't sure which charter to choose, but when we saw Captain Bill's sign saying that we could do a combo tour that would involve shelling, sightseeing and fishing we decided that sounded like fun. Our experience was so much more than... More

This was the third time in six years we have gone out fishing with Captain Bill Walsh. Each time has been great. He's careful and safety-conscious, and really knows where the fish are. He's patient with kids. He filets your catch upon return to the marina. I don't think you could have a better fishing experience. We look forward to... More

We started the day at the marina and got onto the boat with Captain Bill. He had life jackets for the kids and everything we needed (including ice squirt bottle with water to cool off and for kids fun, and bottled water). We traveled and floated for sharks and pompano. After a couple fish we followed the tides to the... More

Fished today (7/2/14) with Capt. Bill....who put us on fish every stop we made. Very knowledgable Captain who is very good with children. (Mine are 10 and 12). HIGHLY recommend Capt. Bill for an excellent time in shore fishing at a very reasonable rate.

Have been on Dawn Patrol twice over the past few years. Highly recommend Capt. Bill who made our first fishing trip a wonderful experience. Very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend calling Dawn Patrol for the shelling & fishing package or just fishing.
