Description: Capt. Rick's Sportsfishing has 15 boats to choose from...from a 48' Viking...
Capt. Rick's Sportsfishing has 15 boats to choose from...from a 48' Viking to a 31' Bertram. The captains are English speaking and have at least 10 years experience fishing these grounds. All the fishing is done trolling dead baits using 20 to 30 lb. Shimano or Penn gear. Many of our boats also have a fighting chair. Two of our Captains are also experts at fly fishing, in which case you must provide your own gear. Of course, all billfish are released. Every year there are double digit grand slams (a sailfish, white and blue marlin in one day) and sometimes there are double grand slams (two slams in one day) and super grand slams (add a swordfish.) Other abundant fish are: wahoo, dorado, tuna, kingfish, and barracuda. Best of all - we set our baits right as we exit the marina! No travel time. We have caught sails so close we have released them in the marina.

I have been on a couple of deep sea fishing trips, however none in this setting. The boat was amazing, the staff even more amazing and very friendly crew. I went by myself and caught 3 maui maui, a spanish macerol and two- seven foot plus sailfish. The sailfish both hit at the same time on different rods. I reeled... More

Each time I tried a different crew and a different boat and was amazed by the professionalism of the guys I had the pleasure to fish with. I booked a private trip each time. This year, I fished with Betto and his crew Cenin and Mike on... More

‎Glenna, I just wanted to send you a note and tell you what a great time we had. Captain Lucho and Jonnie were the most professional guys that I have had the pleasure of fishing with, within your charters.

I went on a private 4 hour fishing trip and my experience was great. Had a Mahi Mahi on in just about 20 minutes from the beginning and another within a short while. Then caught 3 sail fish 1 at 100 pounds, the captain and mate were awesome and made sure i caught something. Definitely going back next year!

Bob & Glenna arranged a life-altering fishing excursion for our husbands last week. Each of the guys caught 2 mahi mahi's, and they caught a Marlin too! The crew cleaned the fish for us, packed it in ice & we had a nearby restaurant cook the fish on a grill for us! Very memorable day - thank you to all... More

We went on a half day fishing trip with Captain Lucha and his mate Johnny. We were treated wonderfully by the manager at the store front before the fishing trip and the boat was clean and stocked with all the beverages we would need. What a great day. It was me, my wife, my two kids (ages 9 and 11)... More
