Luck o’ The Irish Fishing Charters was named after Capt. Rich's origins. Born in Tullamore, Ireland in 1979, he decided to come to the US in 2001. He found his new home in Southwest Florida, where he could pursue his deepest passion –fishing. The only thing Capt. Rich enjoys more than pulling in a big Red is helping his guests experience the same excitement! He has made quite the life for himself over the last 19 years, with a beautiful home and family to show for it. He takes great pride in how far he has come and loves to pass that same Irish luck on to his passengers.
