What people say about Capt. Billy:

""Capt. Billy Wert taught me this: “There’s two kinds of weather, “weather” you want to go fishing or “whether” you don’t!”" Capt. Matt Bellinger.

"We also had a great day on a backcountry fishing trip with Capt. Bill Wert. His knowledge of the Keys and fishing was amazing. I would highly recommend using Capt. Bill as your fishing guide."  Trip Advisor

"Two nites in a row we land tarpon over 150 pounds. Capt Billy Wert scores a beast as well and we saw a few other Hugh Jazz poons going airborne as well. Islamorada offers some great fishing 24/7/365!"  Saltwater Hillbilly

Todays catch: 1 trout, 3 tarpon, 5 snook, 15 redfish. Capt Billy Wert from Islamorada was great! Incredible day of fishing. I love Keys!!"  Mark Meyers - Twitter

"For a back-country experience, Captain Billy Wert takes small groups across Florida Bay through a miragelike archipelago of mangrove flats that surrounds the southern boundary of Everglades National Park. He'll take you flying over waters where no one has been before. Bonefish, tarpon, and snook are the sought-after prizes...The experience would appeal to any Floridian's amphibian psyche"  Thomas E. Whittingslow (Times of the Islands)
