Captain John and his experienced team have traveled the deep dark ends of the sea for the most coveted awards, the biggest game fish... the trophy winners. Now, they are here to offer friends, family and thrill-seekers a great voyage on the high seas aboard their exceptional 53' Hatteras Convertible. Enjoy this half-day charter on the RingMaster, fully equipped with the latest fishing tackle and loaded for comfort.
Growing up in a fishing family under his grandfather Captain Joe Sr., his father, Captain Joe Jr., and Captain John himself used to spend the summers fishing the Long Island sound, the northeast canyons, and winters out of Pompano Beach, Fl and the Bahamas. Captain John started fishing professionally at age fourteen and had his first charter boat at eighteen. He owned and operated the 43' charter boat "Bolo" out of Hillsboro Inlet by twenty. After six years and over 1000 charters, he took a sabbatical to follow the tournament circuit to fish exotic spots all over the world. Now, Captain John is back, and he's here to offer you and your friends a fantastic sportfishing experience. The entire crew of the Ringmaster strives for excellence as your ultimate sportfishing charter.

Captain John and First Mate Chris made this a really enjoyable day. The water was choppy but this boat handled the chop easily. And the boat was in very good condition and clean. We trolled for a few hours and then kite fished the rest of the time. We caught ...Read More a Blackfin, king Mackerel, couple of Bonitos, and a couple of others. When we had the kite, we caught a sailfish. Very exciting. Sadly the sailfish broke the leader before we got it all the way in for a photo. I was hoping we’d get a dolphin, but fishing has ups and downs. I only wish I had more time to go again while we were in Florida. Will definitely do again when we are back! Thank you.

I have chartered 3 boats in 90 days. This was the best experience by far despite rough seas. My party included two dads, 10 and 12 year old boys and my friends wife. In 4 hours we caught 6 fish including mackerel and tuna despite very rough conditions. The captain ...Read More was incredibly professional along with the crew. These gentleman were very friendly but all business when it came to catching fish. They worked their butts off the entire time. They were equally awesome with the kids. The boat itself was in excellent shape with a great layout for fishing or simply sitting in the cabin and enjoying conversation. Everything was clean and the captain and crew were always in communication with us and genuinely concerned about safety. Fantastic experience and we will return for a second round with this group!

There were four of us and we all had a great time. We caught lots of Bonita (bait fish), and was fun pulling them in but not great eating. But luckily, we did catch a couple Black Fin Tuna and one large King Mackeral - and they were ...Read More delicious! Both Captain John and First Mate Chris were great. We will fish with them again next time we’re in Pompano Beach!

We had a great time fishing with Captain John and his deckhand Chris. We were able to catch a few bonito, a barracuda, and a great sailfish! Both John and Chris worked hard to put us on the fish. The boat itself was amazing. Plenty of space for everyone and ...Read More AC inside the cabin was a nice relief from the sun. Well definitely book again next time we’re in Florida.

Captain John and Chris did a fantastic job keeping the kids engaged in fishing fun the whole time! And Rusty was such a treat! The day was gorgeous. The crew were easy-going, multitasking fishing with fun conversation, and kept things moving so fluidly we hardly noticed as conditions or the ...Read More target fish changed. The boat is kept very well, is clean, well run, and feels welcoming. The day was fun, relaxing, and a great way to spend time with the family - exactly what we needed. Thank you John and Chris! Well done!
