It is difficult to put into words the outstanding day of fishing that we had. Captain Rick put us on the fish very early into our trip and the action never let up. This was the first time I took my son and nephew fishing, both 10, and a second trip on a boat for my daughter 13. I was... More

This is our 2nd fishing charter out of HH in the last couple of years. Last time we went with Bull Dog...this time with Tallboy. While the fishing is very similar....we went out fishing blues and then shark....the difference was in the Captain and 1st Mate. The Tallboy crew were much more engaging than the other charter. Overall a very... More

Took a 3 hour shark fishing trip with Tallboy Fishing Charters. It was our family's first time on a fishing charter and my 3 boys and my wife and I had an incredible time. We caught many different kinds of fish and learned a lot about the ocean and fishing in general. Captain Richard and Mate Paul knew how to... More

After a very enjoyable and successful shark fishing trip with Tallboy Charters last year we returned this year to try a little blue fish and mackerel fishing. And we were not disappointed. Our two sons ages 12 and 16 caught plenty and enjoyed every minute. The crew seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a good time and learned... More

Our family of four went on a 4 hour trip with Captain Richard and Craig on 5/14/15. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Richard and Craig, who were a couple of good guys, showed us a great time. They do a nice job of finding fish and engaging in conversation. We ended up catching a 7 ft, 150 lb... More

Went fishing with Captain Richard and Craig on May 13th and had the best time in a long time. Limited out on Black sea bass ( amazingly good fish if you've never had any). Thanks again for the trip - you made two old ladies day!

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
