Captain Ricky has alot of of positive reviews and for my Wife ,Brother in law and Myself we definitely see why.We arrived on time and Ricky and first mate Cody were ready for us,a brief introduction and off we go.The day was overcast and really over all good conditions. Ricky’s ...Read More first stop go catch some bait and that he did. We then headed out to sea to fish.We hit the spot and as previous reviews said we were on the fish.We dropped lines and almost immediately we had our first fish it was barracuda but as this was our first time on charter we were all very excited. Then following up we hit on 5 nice kingfish and it was the best fishing experience. The fish just kept hitting one after another. Ricky and first mate Cody are truly professional informative and with there experience gave us a first trip that lives memories of a lifetime. I would definitely book more trips with him and as you can see tell anyone going to St. Augustine to book with Ricky.we are first ti.e charters and could not of had a better experience. Thank you

I took my family on a half day trip with Captain Ricky and Cody. We literally had the best time. We got close up to the shrimping boats to see the dolphins, sharks, and tarpon trailing behind it. We found schools of Bonita fish and were able to catch a ...Read More few. My fiancé was able to hook a shark, but we were unable to get it to the boat. However, my fiancé was able to finally hook a tarpon and it was on and popping. Lol. After an 80 minute fight with this huge tarpon, the tarpon finally succumbed to my fiancé great angler skills. During the fight, Captain Ricky showed great control over the boat and we were thoroughly impressed by him. He even risked ending up in divorce court with his wife by staying out wayyyy past our time to make sure we won the fight against the tarpon 🤣🤣 All together my family had a great day and we would highly recommend Captain Ricky to anyone looking to enjoy a day on the water.

We caught a good number of fish and sharks and had a blast with Captain Ricky and his first mate! Both captain and first mate were very easy to talk to and we had a blast!! The 4 hour trip seemed like a 6-7 hour trip!! We would definitely book another fishing charter with them!!!

We had a wonderful time! Captain Ricky put us on fish from the the start and the action kept up all day. We caught plenty of King Fish, multiple Cobia (one was 60 lbs!), Red Snapper, Trigger Fish, and Sea Bass. It took two of us to ...Read More carry the cooler of fish fillets home! On top of all that, Captain Ricky was a pleasure, a great teacher (my buddy and I brought our sons with us), and all around super-helpful. His first mate, Cody, was awesome too! We’ll be back for sure!
