Captain Rudy's father brought him fishing as a small child, and Captain Rudy earned his first boat when he was 16 years old. Since then, Captain Rudy has operated boats as big as 32'.

His charter is a family-run business as Captain Rudy's son serves as his first mate. Captain Rudy has always enjoyed being out on the water fishing and became a charter captain so he could pass his passion on to others to enjoy.

Papa Bear's Fishing Charters Trips

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. 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! Note: 6 and 8 hour trips start at 8:00 am, and 4 hour trips can start at either 8am or 1pm. Read More

We had a great time on our trip. Rudy got us into fish right away and I was nonstop action until it was time to go in.

Captain Mike had us on fish all day! One hookup lost to likely large shark. Boated King Mackerel, Sand Tile, Trigger Fish, Blue Wrasse, Yellowtail Snapper, Grunts, Porgies and more. Everyone joined the fun. Thank you skipper for a great ocean fishing adventure. We will be back. PS - grilled king with garlic, ginger and sesame oil is the way to go!

Had an amazing fun time on this charter! Captain Rudy put us right on the fish. Our son, 3 1/2 years old, had so much fun. He was so excited when we caught the fish. It was a great family trip. Cannot wait to do it again next time we are in town. Good times!

Wow! What a great trip we had. This was my third trip with PaPa Bear and they get better each time. The seas were angry that day, but Captain Rudy did a miraculous job navigating and finding fish. Caught my first Sail Fish and we had it boarded, pictured, and 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. Captain is very knowledgeable in fishing technique and knowing the location of all the good fishing spots. Rudy is also very patient while teaching the proper way to fish the reefs. I would highly recommend Papa Bear’s Charter to anyone looking to fish in that area of Florida
