Captain Bio

Captain Billy Archer

Yes. We encourage all families to fish together. For safety, we provide children life jackets for most children 50 lbs or bigger for smaller children we recommend you bring your own to specifically fit them. 

Yes. We have coolers for your food and drink or you can bring your own cooler. If you want food or drink provided we can accommodate that but there will be an additional charge to cover all expenses.

Yes. We discourage hard liquor but wine or beer is fine. Hard Liquor in our experience doesn’t go well with hot sun or choppy weather so play it safe.

No, except in Louisiana where one is required.   On most federally permitted vessels all of our customers are covered by our vessel license that is paid for by your captain.

Yes, Although most Captains provide tackle bait and ice in the price of your trip you are more than welcome to bring your own gear.

Most likely the mate will clean the catch at the end of the day. Fish cleaning is usually part of the gratuity for the mate. Ask your captain what an appropriate tip should be for your day’s experience.  (It usually runs 15-20% of the charter price.)

Watch the weather and talk to your Captain for advice on proper attire. In most cases wear light covered clothing for the sun, appropriate clothing for the daily temperature and soft sole tennis shoes, deck shoes or slip resistant sandals. ( NO CROCS or hard sole boots or shoes)

Maybe! Most charters are pretty all-inclusive with fuel, bait, ice, and tackle provided. Some charters run a set price but have a fuel surtax added. Ask your captain about any additional charges before you go.

First ever fishing trip for me today, and I struck it lucky being on the Seminole Wind with Captain Billy and Jimmy on our Red Snapper charter! Loads of fish, and big ones at that! Friendly, helpful, fun....give them a call to book your next fishing charter. You'll be very happy you did!

If you want fish, Billy and his first mate, BamBam, is the way to go. Limited out on Snappers in half a day (on full day trip) and spent the rest fishing for monsters. There were 8 of us and all had a great time. Plenty of room on boat. Will schedule next year for sure.

Capt. Billy and Bam Bam are top notch! This is our second year fishing with him and we will fish with him every year as long as he will have us. If you want to catch fish, this is the boat to get on. Thank Y'all so much!
