This was our first time to Hilton head. I called and spoke to Rico prior to scheduling. He answered all of my questions and we went on a 4 hour charter on 10/4/2019. He communicated with prior to the trip as well. Adam and Rico were very helpful on the boat and we had a tremendous time. Neither of them are clock watchers. We actually stayed out longer. They were both concerned about us catching fish. We caught enough for dinner and were able to take our catch directly to the restaurant where the charter is located for dinner after the charter. The boat is nice and fast with twin 250’s for getting out to the right spots fast. I would highly recommend and if we ever go back to Hilton head we will be booking with them. If you want a great experience look no further than tall boy charters.

Had a great time fishing with Rico and Adam. They were awesome. It was great to watch as my son reeled in a 350 lb, 10ft Nurse Shark. Ran over our time but Captain Rico never gave it a second thought.
Thanks for a great experience

Rico and Adam have a great operation going. Thank you guys so much!!! Took home a ton of Cobia and some Spanish Mackeral. These guys are the real deal and are incredibly friendly/inviting.

My stepdad, father-in-law, friend, and I fished with Richard (Rico) and his mate for the first time last Saturday. To say it was a great experience is an understatement! Water was rough but they put us right on the fish. We caught several Amberjack, some Cobia, trigger fish, a huge grouper, and a few Red Snapper as well! We had a blast hauling in these strong fish! These guys were first class from the moment we stepped on the boat to Rico helping us lug our heavy (with fish) cooler back to our truck. We will definitely be back for another memorable experience soon! If you are in the Hilton Head Island area, I highly recommend Tallboy!

Thanks for the great review! It was a fun trip for us as well. I hope those fish were as fun to eat as they were to catch. We’ll look forward to hearing from you again and having you back on board the Tallboy.

Spent a wonderful day on the Tallboy. We were a group of six with 2 girls, ages 7 & 10. We started out with totally miss booking the trip on our end and Captain Rico changed his schedule to fit us in. The water was great and they took us to great fishing spots. We caught 14 in total. They even worked with the girls to real them in. Thank you Capetian Rico and first mate Adam for a perfect fishing day. And the shark filets were delicious!

We really enjoyed having your family and appreciate your understanding that the weather conditions that day were not ideal. You were a pleasant contrast to our morning trip! I’m happy to hear you had a great time and hope we earned the privilege of seeing you again soon.
