Operating out of Riviera Beach, Florida, Papa Bear’s Fishing Charters is in prime position to take you on a deep sea adventure. Captain Rudy Neumann has been fishing these waters for over 3 decades and knows what it takes to provide a reel-screaming fishing experience!

Capt. Rudy fishes with his son Michael, the first mate. This dynamic duo caters to their customers’ requests while staying in tune with the fishing conditions on the day. Rudy began this charter company in memory of his dad – he hopes to pass the love of fishing his father instilled into him onto his customers.

They will guide you through the full range of sportfishing techniques available on Florida’s famous east coast. Whether you want to kite fish for Sailfish, bottom fish or drift over the reefs and wrecks, they’ll walk you through the experience.

Your trip will take place aboard a 28’ Grady White boat. This classic vessel has ample space for up to 4 anglers fishing at once. Fitted with serious fishing amenities, a hard top, and seating, this boat will let you get the best of offshore and nearshore fishing. The enclosed restroom and kitchen mean even longer trips will be comfortable.

You’ll be provided with quality rods and reels by Penn and Shimano. Lures are also included in the price, and quality live bait is available for an extra fee. You’ll also find light snacks and drinks waiting for you, so all you need bring is any additional food and drinks.

You can also have your catch mounted, for an additional cost. Capt. Rudy can make a small replica of your catch, or make a life-size mount based on measurements of the fish. To view replicas and fish mounts go to photos and videos! Each angler will also receive a small gift and you’ll also have an opportunity to purchase a T-shirt if you wish.

If you’re looking for a tailor-made experience with a friendly, family company, look no further. Papa Bear’s Fishing Charters’ friendly and professional service will make you want to come back for more.

My father brought me fishing as a small child. I had my first boat when I was 16 years old. Since then I have had boats as big as 32'. I have my son as my first mate and have my wife fill in sometimes. I have always loved being out on the water fishing with my family. I became a charter captain so I can pass this on to other people to enjoy. I fish out of lakeworth inlet and target areas from the breakers hotel to Hobe Sound when fishing the reefs. We offer a variety of trips from 4 hours to 8 hours. The 6 hour and 8 hour trips include some trolling for mahi and tuna. The 4 hour trips are for bottom fishing the reefs. I also give the option to troll on these trips for 100 fuel allowance. This will grant 1 hour of offshore trolling. We make your day fun!!!!
