Hop on board with Captain Rudy and prepare for an action-packed day of offshore fishing in Riviera Beach! Productive nearshore and offshore Atlantic waters that Florida is known for are just a quick trip away from Riviera Beach....Read More
On this half, 3/4 or full-day trip, Captain Rudy will take you a few miles off the West coast of Florida where you'll be going after some exciting Barracuda, Black Grouper, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo and various Snappers and Sharks. You'll be targeting these fish using light tackle, artificial lures, trolling or jigging depending on what you want to do or what you want to catch. If you have a method or fish in mind, just let Captain Rudy know and he'll get you set up!
Captain Rudy fishes aboard a 28' Grady White sportfisher that can hold up to 4 guests. Powered by twin Evinrude 225 HP engines, this vessel will have no problem navigating the nearshore waters and getting you far offshore! She comes complete with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well, Outriggers and a Fighting Chair to make sure you get a fish on board! Also on board is a Restroom, Bed, Kitchen and Refrigerator.
Captain Rudy will provide all fishing rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and fishing licenses. All you need to bring is sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and any food or drinks you might want. Captain Rudy will even make a life-sized mount or a small replica of your catch for no extra cost! Captain Rudy loves leaving anglers with memorabilia so they can remember their exciting day out on the water. Feel free to buy a T-shirt from him!

Caught my first Sail Fish and we had it boarded, pictured, and ...Read More back safe in the water in less then one minute. What a fight! Beautiful to watch as it danced across the water. Also caught a Barracuda, that also gave one heck of a fight. Both fish caught using a kite and on live bait. Three trips, all with lots of fish in the boat. Definitively going back next year for round 4!
Had a great day of fishing with captain Rudy. I was on fish as soon as we stopped catching numerous yellowtail and mutten snapper. Also caught my first barracuda.
