Kevin Beach, along with Billy Wells is a founding captain at Mexican Gulf Fishing Co. He and Billy have been at this a long time now; in fact, some say they’re both about to venture across that line and step firmly into the territory of how shall we say it: “old salts.” But, we love old salts because they’ve been there, and they’ve “done that.” Over and over and over again.
Captain Colin Byrd put it best when he said, “bait has shown up in full force, and our tuna bite is on fire. August is looking spectacular — tuna will be strong, big fish already here, and we know as we get into late summer and fall even bigger ones roll in. We’ve had plenty of customers going home with good stories, great smiles, and full coolers.”
Other captains at MGFC report the same.
Capt. Billly Wells and Capt. Colin Byrd are having a great summer on the f/v Wild Bill. This 37ft Freeman has been on the scene of many doubles and triples in July.
As in “doubled up on tuna, tripled up on tuna, doubled up on swordfish,” says Colin.
“We’ve had great success,” says Billy. “The boat runs like a charm with these new Mercury outboards, and we’re getting to the fish early and often.”
