My wife and I went fishing with Captain Billy again this year. Due to weather conditions we didn't catch the "food" fish we were after but did have a great time fighting a giant fish for over an hour and a half that we never were able to get to the boat. Captain Billy's boat is always clean and he has all the equipment you will need for a great day on the water. We will definitely look him up next April when we are in the Keys again.

“Did it again”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went back to Key West and decided to get back on the boat with Captain Billy. Well this year was better than last. We fished for four days, caught tarpon, tuna, grouper and sharks. Captain Bill once again surpassed our expectations with his knowledge of fish, gear and the waters around Key West.

“Great time with Captain Billy”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Our family went fishing with Captain Billy while we were in the Florida Keys for the day. ( We were on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship.) He picked us right up at the ship's dock on time and we had a great time with him. It was a windy day so the 'big' fish weren't biting, but we did catch some smaller ones. He was easy to get along with, told us some interesting facts about the fishing and the area, and had a very nice boat. It was an overall good time! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to go fishing in the keys.

“can't wait for next trip”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

I recently took a fishing charter with my girlfriend while visiting
Key West. We were not sure which guide to choose because there are so
many choices. A guest in our hotel said they had a great experience
with Captain Billy so we tried him at Something Fishy Charters, and it
proved to be the right choice. The boat was roomy and very clean. As
soon as we left the dock his knowledge of the waters around Key West
was obvious. The first fishing spot was chosen on the Gulf side
because the wind was coming from the south. It was a wise decision
because we enjoyed calm water all day and found out later that the
boats on the Atlantic side suffered rough seas and wind. I really
appreciated this because I am prone to seasickness. The smooth riding
catamaran design of the boat and the protected waters we fished in
kept me feeling just fine. There was a large variety of live and
frozen bait on board which gave us the chance to target different
kinds of fish. Right away we caught a big cobia. All the while we
were catching snappers, groupers, and a variety of other fish. The
highlight was a goliath grouper which we fought for over 45 minutes,
taking turns with the rod. Even though it broke the line before we
could get a good look at him it was a blast. We kept one cobia and
released 3. After a fantastic day Billy cleaned and packaged our fish
so we could take it to a restaurant where we ate it and celebrated our
success. It is the most fun we had on our trip and we will definitely
do it again.
