Captain Richard Huggins is a lifelong fishing fanatic, and the man behind Xtreme Charters. He decided to set up his own charter company after taking part in land-based fishing tournaments, hooking Redfish and Shark species. As well as gaining plenty of skills and knowledge about shoreline fishing, he saw first-hand how accessible it is. This is something he now offers with his own trips, which are suitable for anglers of all ages and abilities.

Capt. Richard is able to take groups of up to 6 guests with him, making his shoreline adventure the perfect choice for an incredible family day out. If you’re an experienced fisherman, it’s a great opportunity to test your skills against your best angling buddies, as well as earning some bragging rights!

Depending on when you visit, the species you’ll be targeting will differ, but Jekyll Island offers fantastic year-round angling opportunities. Capt. Richard will show you how to use a variety of tackle and spinning reels to hook anything from Snook, to Redfish, to Mackerel species, and even Yellowfin Tuna, as well as plenty of other world-famous fish.

If you want to make your trip even more unique, why not opt for a special Shark adventure? Capt. Richard will help you use heavy gear to cast off for a variety of these notorious sea creatures, including Tope and Hammerhead Shark. Make sure you bring a camera with you, as all Shark are catch, tag, and release.

Capt. Richard has been fishing since he was 10 years old, and it's fair to say that angling is one of his biggest passions. He likes to say that he was born into it, so it was only natural that he'd find a way to turn this passion into his full-time job! He runs Xtreme Off The Beach Charters, which introduce anglers to fishing from a whole new perspective – rather than heading out on a boat, all adventures take place from various shorelines all over Florida and Georgia. Capt. Richard's charter started out as a land-based fishing team that participated in different Red Drum and Shark tournaments off the beach. He saw how popular this type of fishing was, not just with hardcore fishermen, but also with families and budding anglers. Now, he works alongside 9 other guides to provide incredible, unique adventures across two states – and even better, they're suitable for the whole family! Anglers of all ages and skill levels are warmly welcomed to try out this incredible style of fishing.
