This was our second year fishing with Captain Chris Willi, each trip exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this charter for all levels of fisherman, Chris is especially great with novice and beginners and can easily accommodate expert anglers.

Chris is a consummate pro. He knows the area inside and out. Boat and gear in top condition. He is a relaxed and patient guide. Felt he was as excited about the fishing as we were! Would definitely do it again.

A well stocked shop with knowledgeable staff. Even if you don't fish, stop in for one of their iconic t-shirts. If you do fish, you will find out what the fish are biting, and if you want to CATCH fish, hire Capt Willi for a...More
