Capt Rich

Luck o’ The Irish Fishing Charters got its name from the origin of the owner, himself. Born in Tullamore, Ireland, Capt Rich made his way to the United States as a young man in 2001. It did not take him long to discover that his new home was in Southwest Florida, where he could pursue his deepest passion; fishing. The only thing Capt Rich enjoys more than pulling in a big red is helping his clients experience the same excitement! He has made quite the life for himself over the last 20 years, with a beautiful home and family to show for it. He takes great pride in how far he has come and loves to pass that same Irish luck on to his passengers.

Capt Kenny

Captain Kenny comes to us seasonally. When he’s not fishing the waters of Fort Myers Beach, you can find him running charters in Alaska. His extensive experience as a fishing captain makes him a wonderful asset to the team. His fun personality makes him the BEST!
