We ranged in age from 8 to 70 years old and all of us caught fish and were treated with extra special care. Both Rich and Mike made sure we all caught BIG fish, we were able to... More

We did the three full day package which included 6 night stay at Capt. Rich's rental home. The house was beautiful and extremely clean, located about 2 blocks off of Duval street. Never needed a car, walked right to the main drag. We fished reefs, wrecks and trolled. Constantly caught fish and had the best fishing experience I've ever had... More

We caught a sailfish, which was the experience of a lifetime, cero mackerel, mutton snapper, barracuda, yellow jack, yellowtail snapper, and horse eye jack - and these are the ones that I can remember! These... More

A full day fishing charter on the Southbound is the way to go! Our annual trip to Key West always includes at least one trip with Captain Rich and crew. We have enjoyed 1/2 and 3/4 day trips with fishing success over the years but nothing beats the full day experience. Captain Rich starts by fueling the boat and proclaiming... More
