I booked an all-day trip with Southbound Charters as a high school graduation present for our 17 year old son, who wanted to catch a billfish. I am a pretty experienced fisherman and have taken a number of fishing charters over the years, but never an offshore trip. Capt. Rich is one of the absolute best charter boat captains I... More

Booked the husbands and the teenagers a charter. They had a great time! Caught 35 fish brought them back to the house we cooked them for dinner! DELIULOUS! They saw dolphins and other types of fish while out. So glad they did this charter.

Just spent my 5TH day on the Southbound. As usual it was the most professional charter we ever used. Rich and John made the trip very enjoyable. On a hot day when fishing was supposed to be sloe we caught fish all day. Even a large sailfish. Thanks again for a great time.

Our second trip with Capt. Rich. Great guy, great boat and works his butt off to get you onto fish. His mate Ben was terrific...really busted his butt as well. Friendly, fun and great experience. Highly recommend.

3 of us did a 4 hour trip with Capt. Rich. He and his First Mate Ben were fantastic. Fishing was good but the attitude and friendliness of the crew will always be remembered. We will go back and next time we will do an alway trip. BTW - don't forget sun screen....

We are a shade north of green on the deep sea fishing experience scale but Capt. Rich and Ben explained everything they could to us, and answered everything we... More

We both went out for half day on Saturday and husband went for the full day on Sunday. Great time both days successful fishing. Would recommend Captain Rich and Ben to any one. Not only experienced, able to put you on fish they are genuinely good people.

Capt Rich and First Mate Ben put us on the fish, even with other boats struggling. Friendly, like you had been fishing with them forever, knowledgeable about the area, conditions, etc. we will be back!!!
