Background
I’m a 4th generation fisherman in Apalachicola Florida. I’ve worked on the local & statewide waters most of my adult life and been Charter Fishing full time for 8+ years now & commercial fished as long as I can remember. I know these waters as good as or better than anyone around. Safety, entertainment and satisfaction are top priority along with catching fish & educating. If I can’t meet your needs you shouldn't have to look any further. My Father is a unlimited Master Captain, My Brother is a unlimited Master Captain & Dive Master that specializes in offshore fishing & diving. Several other immediate family members including Uncles, Cousins, etc are also Captains & work together to make sure all of our customers are well satisfied. NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF ADVENTURE YOU CAN DREAM OF! Thanks for reading to get to know a little about me. So book one of the unlimited number of trips I offer because I'd love to take you on the adventure of a lifetime! 100% SATISFIED CUSTOMERS SO FAR!
Techniques
I specialize in Bay/Flats Fishing, Night Time Flounder gigging trips. "Customers Favorite" Limited availability being a crowd favorite especially for kids & only a couple local Captains offer or are capable. The very few that do limit it to 2 people max due to extremely shallow water the flounder like. I have a custom built boat designed to accommodate up to 6, so you don't have to split the family up, hire additional Captains "if available" or multiple nights & pay for multiple trips. So try to book in advance to reserve an adventure you'll surely never forget. Only complaints from customers are, they'll never want to go fishing again or if I'm unavailable for the remainder of their vacation!!! I don't mind complaints like those, other than that I've never had any others. I also offer Bowfishing as well if you'd like to test your accuracy but I bring the gigs along just in case. Techniques of fishing depends on conditions, weather, & types of fish you'd like to target. EAT MORE FISH!

Went fishing on Saturday, February 18, 2017

We got this trip for our son,  his wife and four sons ages 6 to 17.  I spoke to Captain Richard to set up the trip and he was helpful and professional.  I was sure it would go well.  The kids can’t stop talking about the fantastic time they had and how Captain Richard went to every length to be sure they had a great time and caught fish.  All of them had an amazing time.  Our 8 year old said he never had so much fun as he did today and he is going to name his first child after Captain Richard.  Thank you Captain Richard for making this a great memory for our family.

Thank you for such a great review Mrs Margaret. I believe that I had as much fun with the kids as they did with me. I wasn’t aware that they had enough fun to name their first child after me, lol. I hope to see or at least hear from you & the rest of the family again. From customers to hopefully lifelong friends in less than a day. Thanks again for choosing me & to Fishing Booker for making this fishing trip & connection possible. Captain Richard Scarabin!
