About the Captain

Rick Brady
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
Member since July 2014
I myself and my Captains Matt and Tommy have extensive experience in fishing the Fort Lauderdale/Miami areas: two Bahamas Billfish Championships and numerous tournament wins in addition to our many years of local chartering. None of us enter into tournament fishing anymore and instead choose to spend our days furthering anglers experiences at sea or introducing new anglers to deep sea fishing. Between us, we have a combined total of over 90 years guiding anglers in their pursuit of big game fish and also "action" charters tailored to meet each charters specific wishes. We love what we do, it is all we do, and our love for our job is easily seen with Trip Advisor and Google reviews as well as here at Fishing Booker, as all carry us with a 5-star rating.

Deep Sea fishing on Marlin’ My Darlin was a great experience! 5 of us booked the 4 hour trip and it was plenty of time for us first timers. We arrived at the marina with the boat crew waiting outside of the boat on the dock for us which made it super easy to find and was a nice surprise. Everyone on the crew was very friendly and skilled at their job. Plus, they have some funny stories if you get the chance! Only downfall of the trip was one of the people in our party got sea sick after going in the cabin down to the restroom because it was so choppy. Aside from that it was a great experience and will definitely do it again!!

We had an awesome afternoon on a calm sunny day with Captains Rick and Matt.
The boat is in very good condition, and the crew had plenty of drinks for us on board. Rick was always on the lookout for more fish. Matt was very patient with the kids and everyone caught at least four bait or other small fish.
Thank you both!
We will be back, as we still need to get that 100lb Marlin.

Crystal clear skies and only a slight current. Clean green to powder blue water close to shore. And yes, something very out of the norm, the boat's heaters inside the cabin and staterooms going full blast. Maybe not “wicked… Read Full Report →
