Captain Billy was born in North Carolina on February 23, 1963. It was in the eastern part of the state where his mother and father taught him to admire and respect the great outdoors. He started his professional fishing career at the age of 13, mating on several off-shore boats and fishing in tournaments throughout Virginia and the Carolinas.
Upon moving to Florida he started fishing small local tournaments, immediately winning several. It was not long until Captain Billy put the skills his parents taught him as a child to use. Becoming a charter captain in west central and southwest Florida, fishing over 300 trips per year, Captain Billy specializes in catching trophy fish on light tackle. In 1999 Captain Billy was ready to fish against the best that the great state of Florida had to offer.
Captain Billy now lives in Apollo Beach where he is a well respected guide, lecturer (giving seminars at local fishing clubs and civic organizations), and tournament director (host the Continental-National/St. Jude’s Greater Tampa Bay Fishing Tournament this will be the sixth year of this tournament with over 50 charter boats, Magnum Tampa Bay Shootout, and scheduled for April 1, 2006 a fund raiser for the Florida State Aquarium).
