Right from the get-go Rick asked me what kind I targeted and I told him that I was looking for a sailfish. From there on Rick and Max worked hard to catch one. After 30 minutes we had a first bite and I reeled it in a beautiful sailfish. Shortly after we had a second sailfish bite, but I lost that one unfortunately. Rick took his time to explain everything in detail and made sure I understand everything what was going on. From the beginning those guys made me feel like a friend and it was fun as hell being out on the water with them. Unfortunately my better half got seasick immediately after the trip started and was struggling badly, so we went back in after 2 hours. Nevertheless it was a trip to remember, an awesome experience and I caught my very first sailfish thanks to these guys. Special thanks to 1st Mate Max!

I needed some blue water therapy before the holiday season and made a quick one day trip to Florida to fish with Capt. Rick. The weather didn’t cooperate and a front kept us from going offshore because the seas were 7-9. Rick kept us inshore and we fished all day around the inlet, landing a few barracudas and lost a few fish too. The boat (Contender) was clean and a nice set up to fight fish. The gear was in great shape and Rick clearly takes care of it. I can’t wait to get back down to south Florida to fish with Rick again in February!

I requested to target Dolphin, even though it is low season. Capt. Rick put us on a weed line that was unusual for this time of year, and we put 3 keeper Dolphin and 5 tuna in the box. Let several other Dolphin go to grow bigger for next time. Had a wonderful time with the Capt. and he was wonderful with my kids. Spent a little time at the end chasing barracuda (landed a big one!) to excite the kids. Can’t wait til next time.
