We went out with Captain Richard this August (2014) for the second time, and had a great day. Richard does a great job. He really knows his business, and the fishing grounds around the island. We caught whiting, toad fish, sting rays, blue fish, bonnet head sharks, sail catfish, black nose sharks and black tip sharks. We also hooked a... More

We had to move our date ahead of schedule due to weather and he was very accomodating. We asked to catch some fun ones and later catch dinner. He did exactly that. We caught 11 drums ranging from 27 inches to 40 inches and even caught a tagged one. We released all caught drums and then moved to catch dinner.... More

Our fishing trip on Tallboy was great! Capt. Richard and Mate Paul are just really good at what they do. We had a group of three and everyone caught fish, learned a little about the island and areas we fished and created memories that we will have forever. We have been out on other charters and would highly recommend Tallboy... More

I have nothing but positive comments about our experience with Captain Richard on our charter. This is our second charter in HHI and I have been on 3 others in other parts of the country. This clearly ranks as one of my best ever. From the great knowledgeable, fun and engaging conversation, the very spacious boat (with a second level... More

I have been on several fishing charters in HH over the last 5 years with varying experiences and this one has been by far the best! This trip was for myself and my 2- 10 year old boys and was a referral from another captain that was already booked for the dates I needed....just so happened Captain Richard had an... More

Myself, my wife and 3 kids ages 7,10 and 18 all had a great time. Capt Richard even had a little bean bag for my 7 year old girl to get comfy and take a nap. We caught many sharks until we were tired of reeling them in and a nice Spanish mackerel that Hudson's grilled up for us for... More

Captain Richard is very helpful and gave us good instruction an information about deep sea fishing. Although the day started a little slow with not much biting he did find us a place to catch several shark, which were fun to catch. And we ended the day with a nice size Cobia, first one of the season! He filleted it... More

Could not have asked for a better experience. Turned a trip into a real vacation. Knew what they were doing and made the expedition excellent! We caught amazing fish and created even better memories. Everything was convenient and stress free. This is exactly what you want when you charter a boat! Thank you captain!

We took a six hour trip and really enjoyed our time on the boat. caught plenty of black bass along with several other types of fish. If... More

Cap'tn Richard and the Tall Boy is our Charter when In S.C. Period hands down.. Richard knows his waters as this has been his backyard playground since he was a kid. As you should know, that is half the battle. But above and beyond that, the "Tall Boy" is a beautiful custom built fishing boat, capable of handling the largest... More

Thanks, Don. It's people like you that keep ME coming back for more. Really and truly, I can tell you that the people make the charter as much as the weather and the fishing. Some people know how to have a good time and, my friend, you're one of them. The rubber duck you brought me still rides shotgun! More
