Spent a half day inshore fishing with Captain Will. We had a group of 6, none of us very experienced and we had a great time! I would absolutely recommend to anyone, he handled our rowdy group so well!

Captain Will was a Reel Gentleman and great fisherman. Knowledgeable, organized, clean boat. My wife and I had a great time catching snapper and hooking up that tarpon! I would hunt or fish with Will Ross anytime.
