A native to Turks and Caicos, or belonger, Captain Virgil runs one of the best charters in the islands. He specializes in reef, or bottom, fishing, reading the wind, weather, tide patterns, and water conditions and relying on good, old-fashioned experience to select the best spots. Many of them only he knows—secrets hes picked up over a lifetime of fishing in the islands.
He also runs a taxi business, and in 2009, the Turks & Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) awarded Ossie Virgil the Star Award for customer service and hospitality. You gain not only his comprehensive knowledge of the waters but also his big smile and sense of humor. When one of his new friends has hooked into a big fish, you've never seen a happier man than Ossie Virgil.
