My husband, son and I booked a charter while in the area for a long weekend. Bill was great and even let us know that the day we were going may not be good fishing due to the wind and conditions so we could cancel if we wanted to. We chose to go anyway because our son was so excited... More

While guide was nice, the experience was ruined because the only fish we caught were out of season. Fished on a Monday in September (however after reading up, we could have switched to a Friday/Saturday or Sunday and kept all the fish we caught) This was my EXPENSIVE 40th birthday present to myself and I wanted some good meat to...

We fished with Captain Bill again and as usual had an amazing time with some amazing fish! I can't say enough about his professionalism and fishing knowledge! We will definitely book with Lost Bay Guide Service again. You won't find a better Captain in the area!

Absolutely the worst "guided" fishing experience I've ever had. While the guide was timely, I found his lack of motivation to change strategies when the fish were not hitting was perplexing. He did, however, book a large number of appointments while my group sat in the same spot for roughly three hours. My two sons and I booked an appointment... More

Capt Craig did a great job for my brother and I. Fair priced, and easy going. Had all the bait we needed, and no worries. Had to stay in shore due to the weather, but didn't effect us. We got a large array of fish, and kept some nice sheepshead. Capt Craig cut the fish up for us at the... More

Craig, Thank you for the kind words and I had a great time as well. Coming from a fella that deals with as many customers as you do at Lamberts that review means the world to me. I look forward to fishing with you again soon. More

This was an awesome experience! Capt. Bill Willis took care of us. It was a slow start to the morning with only 2 Redfish being caught but Capt. Bill soon put us on top of them. Everyone was catching Trout and not just a bite here and there, literally almost every cast we were pulling one in! One of the... More

Wonderful time fishing with Captain Bill. He knows where to go and where the fish are. This is the 2nd year we've fished with him. If the fish are out there he will find them. My son came down to fish with me and Captain Bill. We had a great time and caught several fish.
