Rowdy Charters

Captain Chris Recchio invites you to join him on board his 31’ Ocean Master for an exciting fishing excursion with Rowdy Charters. She’s a spacious center console, you can bring 4 of your fishing buddies with you and you won’t bump elbows or tangle lines. Powered by twin Suzuki engines with 300 HP each, she’ll get you to your fishing grounds in no time!

The key to having successful long fishing trips is keeping your angler’s focus – the boat is equipped for comfort so you can just think of the fishing. The toilet has a full-head and there’s enough shade to take a break from epic hook-ups.

Serious sportfishing requires serious equipment – something Captain Chris is happy to provide. Immaculate BlackFin rods combined with Penn and Shimano reels ensure that you don’t lose that trophy catch due to equipment failure. Outriggers are onboard to allow for more lines when trolling and to extend your reach.

Speaking of serious sportfishing, the catch list with Rowdy Charters is long and impressive. You could go straight for the top stars like the Sailfish, Swordfish, and similar. If you’re looking to fill your coolers with tasty fish you can target Groupers and Snappers, bottom fishing is usually very productive. Anglers who want to test their skill and strength can target Amberjack or Cobia. There are many other species to target like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King and Spanish Mackerel, as well as anything that takes the bait!

You can also go for an epic multiday adventure to the Bahamas. You’ll have to take care of your own accommodation, Capt. Chris will handle all of your fishing needs.

Whether you’re looking to take the family on a casual, quick trip or you’re a trophy angler hunting their new personal best, book a trip with Rowdy Charters and cast off on an unforgettable fishing adventure!
