Captain Rick is the man! If you want to get on some fish definitely make a visit. Two hours flew by like 20 minutes. He knows where the fish are and has great fishing equipment.

I’m not much of an angler but I THOROUGHLY enjoyed my fishing trip with captain Rick. I was actually excited about catching so many cool fish. The atmosphere on the boat was perfect, we listened to music and Rick told plenty of jokes to keep us laughing the whole time. Was the highlight of my trip to Miami.

We went fishing with Capt Richard Hernandez in celebration of my birthday. He made the experience fun as well as very successful in catching many fish! I would recommend for all levels of fishing experience. You WILL catch fish and you WILL have fun.

Cpt. Rick is a great dude. Friendly, confident, and knows how to provide a great experience for novice and expert fishermen alike. The No catch, No pay guarantee is great because I know my money is never wasted.

I went out with Rick on 3.19. Cold front. Extra windy all day. We still put 40 in the boat. Rick knows that he's not just catching fish, but making memories. Great experience and want to book with him again when my grandson is old enough.

Richard was an outstanding guide. He was friendly, he was prepared, he was informative and most of all it was a pleasure to fish with him. Not only would I fish with him again I am going to fish with him again it’s already scheduled.

We are from Switzerland and were guiding for Peacock Bass with Richard. It was an incredibly great experience. Thanks to Richard we caught so many bass we lost count. Richard is a super positive and nice person with a great attitude to life. The guiding was simply a pleasure! Absolutely great!Thank you Richard!

Captain Richard made our day spectacular! It isn’t so much about the equipment, the fish, the boat…of course he has all that exceptional gear. Of course we catch an abundance of fish…that’s why we go there- because he’s an expert at his craft. Moreso; it was the experience that Captain left with us. He truly cared about who we were as people; the experience we had + the memories he helped carve for us. Honest, transparent + a love for connection . Our day was magical, memorable + one of the best days fishing- spending time with Matteo that I have had to this point in life.Thanks Captain. We appreciate you. I look forward to the day our paths intersect again

Great day fishing with Captain Richard. The Charter started promptly at 7. Captain Richard had us fishing and on to fish right away. We caught well over 50-60 beautiful peacock bass. We each caught a lot of singles. The most fun was when we had multiples on at the same time. Doubles, triples and a quadruple. The captain also has a treasure chest of silly jokes to keep the crew in a good mood. Thank you Captain Richard. By the way, this was our second adventure with #Whatafightfishing this year!

The biggest compliment we can give to Captain Richard Hernandez is that we'll definitely be back! Fantastic day on the water for us and our teen kids -- we even had a quadruple catch, with 4 of us pulling in our own beautiful Peacock bass at once! Captain Richard is fun, patient and knowledgable...the whole package for a great experience.

Captain Richard is awesome. We have had 2 excellent charters with him and would go again! He will get you on the fish and you'll probably catch more fish in 6 hours than you ever have before.

Can't say enough about positive things about Captain Rick. He is AMAZING. My husband is an avid Bass fisheman in CA, but he has been wanting to catch Peacock Bass for 25 years. This trip did not disappoint. We did a 6-hour charter. I was worried that may be too long for our 8 year old son, but it went by so fast. We all had an incredible time. Captain Rick was phenomenal. Our family had the best time and will carry these memories for a lifetime.

Fished with Capt Rick today as a last minute charter. From start to finish he was the ultimate professional yet fun and entertaining and the fishing was really great. Even though he felt it was a little slow we still caught over 20 fish in 4 hours. With three of us fishing we had 3 peacocks on the line within the 1st 2 minutes of fishing!! Really a great trip and I definitely would recommend him to any angler!!

We booked a 4 hour trip with Capt Richard in late June. We had an amazing time! He is a very cool and funny guy, which made the trip that much more enjoyable. We caught fish the whole 4 hours. A bunch of peacock bass, as well as a large clown knife fish! It was a great experience, and would definingly come back with Capt Richard if i am ever in the area again!

As a former Florida fishing guide , I hold other Captains to a higher standard . Capt Rick earned the 5 star rating !! Ready to go with a clean boat , top notch fishing gear, chilled bottled waters , and pre arranged live bait we were ready to launch . Our 4 hour trip was action packed with Peacock bass, large mouth bass and a clown knife fish !! His calm demeanor and friendly attitude made for a fun time ! I will use his services again !

Captain Rick was great. We caught about 40-50 peacock bass both days. It was a nice quiet place without other people fishing. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip and couldn’t have gone with a better guide!

We had a great outing with Captain Rich. He was really flexible with scheduling and he’s a really fun dude to be around. Most importantly, he knew where to go to catch fish! We went there with the primary goal to catch some peacock bass and man did he deliver! We were on a 4 hour excursion and we stopped counting at around 20 Peacock. We also caught some largemouth bass, Mayan cichlid, and catfish. Had one tarpon on but I failed to land it. It was just my 17 year old son and I and we had a blast. Life is all about building memories, and this is a memory that won’t be forgotten. I highly recommend Captain Rich if you’re looking for a fun filled and fish filled outing?

My wife and I had an incredible experience fishing and CATCHING peacock and large mouth bass with Capt Rick. We were wore out cranking in so many fighters. Capt Rick loves showing his guests a great time. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied in every way. This was my first time catching a peacock bass. What an amazing species. I kept thinking that I need to get my bass and walleye fishing buddies back in Iowa down here to try it. I will go with Capt Rick again and recommend him to everyone.

I fished many places in the world, I also fished with many guides. Let me tell you, captain Richard is a professional. He knows the waters like the back of his hand and makes sure to put you on fish. You also realize quickly that he loves what he does and he could fish all day! He’s really friendly and makes sure his customers are always satisfied throughout the trip. I booked a 4 hour trip with him and probably landed more than 30 peacocks on that day. Every fish we landed you could feel the excitement on the boat. Not to mention, he’s very well equipped and drives a beautiful boat. This was my first trip with him, definitely not the last. I highly recommend captain Richard, he’s the best guide I had the pleasure of fishing with. I wish there was more than 5 stars!

I wish I could give more stars, but Google limits me to just 5. Captain Rick took my husband and I on an amazing charter! We were experienced fishermen and we traveled to Miami for a quick getaway, and with his guidance and experience, he put us on the BIG ONES! If you are thinking about booking a trip to catch some NICE peacock bass, this is your sign to book it now! Thank you again Captain Rick! Tight lines!
