Osprey boasts some of South Florida’s most incredible angling opportunities – it provides direct access to the diverse fishing grounds of the Gulf of Mexico, after all! If you want to hook some world-famous saltwater superstars alongside a friendly captain, with over 30 years of experience under his belt, come aboard Salt Water Livin LLC for the angling adventure of a lifetime.

Captain Peter Richard is a lifelong angler who has explored a huge variety of fisheries – from the Long Island Sound, to the Great Lakes, to Connecticut, and, of course, the Gulf of Mexico. This is his favorite place to fish, and he offers year-round angling adventures that are suitable for guests of all ages and abilities. Whether you want to hook impressively-sized deep sea species, or take your family on an incredible vacation, he can’t wait to have you on board!

Capt. Peter takes his guests up to 9 miles out onto the Gulf, covering Venice, Sarasota, and other fishing grounds – this calls for a boat that can tackle a variety of waters. His 25’ Heritage 251 center console is more than capable of doing the job! She’s decked out with top-notch navigational and safety gear, as well as a full toilet, and life vests for children aged 3 and up. She can accommodate 4 guests, and you can all fish at the same time.

When it comes to exploring the hotspots, Capt. Peter is the best fishfinder around – although he does have an electronic one, too! He’ll have you on fish in no time, where you’ll be trolling, jigging, drift fishing, and even bottom fishing for your dream catch. Expect to come face-to-gills with a huge host of species, including Grouper (Red and Gag), Snapper (Lane, Yellowtail, and Red), Cobia, Spanish and King Mackerel, Barracuda, and plenty more.

Your captain will make sure you’re equipped with top-notch Penn rods and reels, as well as tackle, bait, and a valid fishing license. Come aboard Salt Water Livin LLC and get ready for a first-class fishing adventure, Florida-style!

Capt. Peter has been fishing for over 30 years, and has plenty of experience when it comes to diverse fishing grounds – he's fished from the Long Island Sound, to the waters of Connecticut, to Lake Ontario, and, finally, the Gulf of Mexico, which is where he fishes now. It's his favorite place – nothing beats this incredible fishery, and he can't wait to introduce you to the plentiful Gulf waters around Osprey and Venice. He uses his years of knowledge to provide his guests with a first-class, friendly experience – whether you're a brand new angler or a seasoned fisherman, you'll feel at home on his boat. His favorite part of the job is watching you reel in the catch of a lifetime, as well as the battle that comes along with it!
