Captain Billy Wells has been fishing "since I was old enough to hold a pole upright". I've fished for hire since I was 17 and I've been a licensed Captain since 2001. Much of that time has been with MGFC. Capt. Billy knows and respects the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Book a trip with Billy Wells, and learn what precision deep blue fishing is all about.

Captain Billy says he lives by three beliefs:
• strive to be the best
• make the most of every day
• and go big or go home

Billy says his satisfaction comes from seeing the excitement, and smiles and exhaustion that come when clients defeat a big fish. Nothing compares to sinking the gaff into a large yellowfin tuna and seeing the beautiful contrast of streaming blood in cobalt blue water. Nothing beats catching large tuna, seeing the look on people's faces as they wonder if the fish will ever stop and hearing, "I can't believe a fish can pull that hard."
