Fans of the Discovery Channel’s hit Deadliest Catch will recognize Capt. “Wild” Bill Wichrowski, the only captain on the show with a marlin lure hanging over the helm, as the no-nonsense captain who can get things done. Wild Bill is going to share this can-do attitude with the students of Marlin University’s Dominican Republic session scheduled for May 19-24, 2014. “I’ve always been a big fan of Marlin magazine and Marlin University,” Wichrowski says. “And this gives me a chance to spend sometime doing what I really love — chasing billfish!”
Wichrowski ran a game-fishing boat in Costa Rica for several years and now lives in Mexico on the Sea of Cortez, where he can keep his fishing skills sharp.
The Dominican Republic is one of most prolific spots on the Marlin University schedule, and we hope to enjoy another red-hot four days of billfishing. We normally encounter good numbers of both white and blue marlin — if we can stumble across a sail or two, someone will have a real shot at a grand slam!
Join us May 19-24, 2014, for this very special session of Marlin U with one of the most interesting stars of Deadliest Catch, Capt. “Wild” Bill Wichrowski!
