Captain Wickers and his first mate, Adam, took us out for a great trip on the morning of Dec 2nd. He was prompt picking us up, and they got us into fish very quickly. One thing I liked is that they weren't content to just troll along if things got slow - they mixed it up and tried different things... More

What a great day. 5 friends fishing off KW with a very knowledgeable captain (Billy) and incredibly helpful 1st mate (Mike). We caught at least 20 fish each with a more than sufficient haul of "keepers". I can guarantee you will be happy with this boat and crew!

I have fished with the Linda D Fishing Charters for 8 years now and I can say that there is nobody better at offshore fishing than Captain Billy Wickers III and his First Mate Adam. These guys are the most knowledgeable, professional fishermen that I have known. Each year that I have gone with them has been fun and adventurous.... More

There were 5 of us for a 6 hour charter in early April. The Captain was "Craig " or "Greg" All he did was take us trolling ALL DAY even though I requested 3 times if we could do some wreck or reef fishing. Trolling is for the avid fisherman who does not mind spending all day watching a line... More

We have been fishing with Billy on the Linda D for over 5 years. We come done once a year and fish for two full days. Billy and his mate are always friendly, well prepared (equipment, bait, etc), and dedicated to giving us the best fishing experience they can. We start by talking about our goals for the day. For...

Captain Billy and mate Adam did it again best day ever. I drive 600 miles to do that every day if I could. This is about the 11th time we have tried it and it gets better every time.

I had a couple of my hunting buddies from Pennsylvania down visiting and my brother who was having his 71st birthday. I surprised them all with a fishing charter with Billy Wickers on the Linda D. V. We were the only boat that day to hook up with a huge sailfish, but that's another story. Anyway, we were after some... More

We chartered the Linda D V for sport fishing. This is our 2nd trip and this one was better than the first. The knowledge of the capt. is amazing. To be able to take us where we caught more fish than imaginable, big fish too. Four of which were worth mounting. Considering no other charter caught much of anything that... More
