Capt. Richard (you can call him Richie) started out fishing with his father, and his love for everything angling-related has only grown since then.

On board, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational and safety equipment, including life jackets for children aged 12 and above. She’s also decked out with a full toilet, air-conditioning, and outriggers for maximum fishability!

Capt. Richie uses his intimate knowledge of these waters to help guests reel in their dream catch – no matter whether you’re looking to spin and jig for inshore species such as Striped Bass and Black Seabass, or battle world-famous offshore species such as Mahi Mahi, the majestic Blue Marlin, or Swordfish! If you’ve always wanted to come face-to-gills with some awesome marine life, you’ll have the chance to target Mako Shark, too, and plenty of others.

Your trip includes top-notch Penn and Shimano rods and reels. Whether you’re a hardcore angler looking to explore these waters with a captain guests describe as fun and easy-going, or want to reel in your first ever catch, come aboard Bitchin Fishing Charters for the angling adventure of a lifetime!
