He has great crew members and gear to take advantage of the many types of fishing available to South Florida. “I have been fortunate to have a job that I love. I enjoy every day that I get to go fishing on my boats. I’ve also participated as an angler, crewman or sometimes even a customer on several other boats. All these experiences have shaped my business philosophy that a hardworking, courteous crew as well as a properly equipped and well maintained boat are essential elements in the charter business. No matter what type of fishing you want to do, I and the rest of my crew will do their best to insure that you experience a great day of fishing.” Captain Ray Rosher.
