Awesome day sport fishing with Captain Billy and Adam. We pulled in a barrel of awesome fish and had fun doing it. We went to New York Pasta Garden and had our Grouper that evening. Highly recommend.

Captain and crew were fantastic, very friendly, and knew right where to go fish! And sent us to a great restaurant that cooked our fish called New York Pasta Garden that did an excellent job on our dinner! Going back out to catch more tomorrow! !!

My two friends and I set out in hopes to catch dinner for the night. We ended up catching TWO sailfish, a barracuda, 3 Bonita, and a tuna that fed 6 people+. Ryan the captain and Mike the mate were great. They worked hard all day to keep us on the fish. I highly recommend this outfit.

Second trip with Captain Billy As usual always on the fish. The Captain Billy and his mate, Adam, made our fishing trip a trip of a lifetime. Looking forward to our next fishing adventure on the Linda D.

Went out for a 6 hour fishing trip with Billy and Adam and had non-stop action all day. They put us on fish all day and mixed things up giving us a variety of species including yellowtail, grouper, mutton, and grunts. Great trip and we will definitely be back next time we are in Key West!

We caught a ton of snapper, a rare grouper, and a couple of nurse sharks. Highly recommend and will be back the next time we are... More
