Captain William Wickers and first mate Adam were extremely knowledgable and helpful. We had planned to head out to deep waters fishing for mahi mahi, but the captain called us the night before our trip. He was... More

I found the Linda D charter on the internet when looking for a fishing trip for our honeymoon in Key West. My name is Linda and my new last name begins with a D so there was not doubt we were going to book this trip. My husband is a passionate fisherman and couldn't wait to fish in the keys.... More

Had an amazing time on the Linda D V. What makes a fishing trip great is the crew. Capt. Billy and First Mate Adam were top notch, very professional and willing to go out of their way to help out. Adam went out of his way to help our daughter and made sure she had a wonderful time. We even... More

It was pretty easy arranging the charter with Captain Billy. We wanted to try for some dolphin and Captain Billy found the weed line pretty quickly. Unfortunately, it seems the fish decided that they were taking the day off. Only interesting thing we found while trolling was a Cuban refugee boat that the Coast Guard had just intercepted and removed... More

You cannot replace several generations of fishing knowledge and the desire to make sure their guest get the best. Capt Billy Wickers and his first mate Adam are truly two of the best! If you're truly looking to catch fish you cannot find a better charter. We caught so many it exhausted one of ours!

Thank you Captain Billy Whickers and deck hand Adam for a wonderful birthday fishing experience on June 14, 2016. We caught a beautiful 37 lb Amberjack and a number of other delicious fish! My husband Lyle really wanted to fish for Tarpon. Captain Billy found them on the way back to the dock and Lyle caught an 85 lb Tarpon!... More

Fished with Captain Billy and Crew Adam on the Linda D. V, 10 hour charter. We caught a variety of fish trolling and bottom fishing when the trolling stopped producing. We didn't catch any monster Billfish or Mahi (as expected - the bite was slow when we were there for everyone) but we still caught a nice collection of Red... More
