Fort Lauderdale Fishing Captains
Captain Rick Brady
A native Floridian, Rick attended Fort Lauderdale High School, Broward Community College and Florida Atlantic University.
Captain Rick has been sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale and other regions professionally for over 35 years and bought his first Fort Lauderdale charter boat over twenty five years ago.
He is an established Captain in South Florida Sport fishing and recognized for his Fort Lauderdale charter fishing accomplishments, as well as numerous tournament wins in South Florida and the Caribbean. Among these wins he currently holds two Bahamas Billfish Championships, a true tribute to his dedication to fishing.
When you meet Captain Rick, he'll greet you with a smile. After all, how can you not be happy when you fish every day? Once the hunt begins for fish, you'll see that in his eyes... and his eyes don't miss a thing.
Captain Steve Souther
Born in Chicago, Il., Steve moved here with his family in the late 60's. A graduate of Loyola Academy High School in Wilmette, Il., he went on to Florida Institute of Technology for 2 years majoring in Marine Biology. Steve holds dual certifications in Scuba instruction and obtained his Captains license in 1976.
He has been operating boats locally and abroad ever since. His fishing experience started on the Great Lakes and in Canada, fishing for Walleye and Northern Pike as a boy. Upon moving here permanently in 75', he began fishing drift and charter boats as both a Captain and mate.
"I haven't had much time to travel abroad since we began our family here, so most of my experience has been here locally, in Fort Lauderdale". It works to our customer's advantage, fishing the same areas year after year; Steve knows the area and habits of the fish here quite well. You'll spend a few hours with Captain Steve, and find him easy going. "This isn't tournament fishing, this is charter fishing… It's supposed to be fun". And THAT is just what you'll find... when fishing with Captain Steve.
