But we did get an octopus! Thank you for having a toilet on-board as well, especially for a full day of fishing. Captain Rick definitely knows his... More

Have been coming down for years but never took the family out fishing in the Gulf. Captain Rick made our day fishing the best day of our whole vacation! We were so impressed with his knowledge and experience of boating and fishing that we are still talking about him. We had fish on consistently throughout the day. We caught a... More

Capt. Rick is fantastic!!! We have gone out with Capt Rick three times now. He is friendly and easy to talk to. He makes everyone feel comfortable. We always catch something and can typically bring dinner home. Our last trip my husband wanted to fish for some bigger fish and Capt Rick delivered. We caught barracuda that we used for... More

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME fishing charter on 7/9/16. Chose this charter last minute online and it was wonderful. Our last day of vacation for sons, 18, 20, & 23, myself, my wife, grandma and even our little Maltese Lilly. Capt. Rick and his first mate were accommodating, informative and the know their spots. We caught enough fish to make our last... More

We had a blast! Capt Rick made us very comfortable and was unbelievably accommodating! I would go back in a second. We fished and caught a lot, learned a lot and just had a great time. He put us on spots we never would have found since he has five most of the locations we fished at. Cannot recommend higher.

We visited Manasota Key the week of 3/21. We had a trip pre-planned with another Captain and it got canceled due to weather. Captain Rick came highly recommended from the guys at Alure Boat Rental. We were able to get out a few days later with Captain Rick and we had an AWESOME time. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very... More
