Come to Tierra Verde, Florida and experience a true fishing adventure on the Eighty! You’ll have lots of fun as you search nearshore and offshore waters along with reefs and wrecks and chase all sorts of prized fish. Captain Rick Zielinski will give you all the help you need so you can have the best possible time on the water. Come along and join him on your next fishing adventure!

You’ll fish from a restored 46’ Bertram sport fishing boat. This spacious and powerful vessel can carry up to 6 guests and is powered by twin 750 HP Detroit 8V92 engines that can have it reach a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. The boat is wheelchair-accessible, uses all the modern and comprehensive navigation technology, and is equipped with a fighting chair, livewell, and outriggers. Its facilities include a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, shower, and bed. To maximize your comfort, the boat also features air-conditioning, a multimedia system, TV, refrigerator, and an ice-box. Also, a first mate will join your trip to give you any extra help you may need.

There’s a wide choice of species you can go after. To name just a few, you can chase various sorts of Snapper and Grouper, Tuna, Sailfish, and King Mackerel. The techniques you can use to catch them include bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, and spinning on both light and heavy tackle. You can choose either to keep your catch or release it back to the water. Also, feel free to bring on your trip any kids you want.

Captain Rick takes care of all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures
and fishing licenses. Also, he can clean and fillet your catch for free. You should just bring lunch
before you depart.

Come visit The Eighty and have an unforgettable day on the sea!
