Meet Captain Rich Adler
West Palm Beach Captain Rich Adler
Captain Rich, The Sportfish Expert
Hi, I'm Captain Rich Adler, and I have been fishing for over 46 years.
It has been my whole life. My passion for fishing started when my father first took me out when I was four years old. I couldn’t remember what we caught that time, but I still remember the feeling of curiosity, thrill, and excitement. Since then, I got the salt-water disease.
. When I turned seven, my father and I caught an 8-pound largemouth bass. As it emerged to the surface, I saw its huge bucket mouth and told my Dad that it was a monster. Many thought that it was just a phase, and they never knew that it would turn out to be my lifelong passion. Well, who can say, I just fell in love with fishing the first time I experienced it.
I now have my Charter Boat- Tuna Wahoo, and I offer a full-service Florida charter fishing operation, taking families, friends, and kids fishing. I do this not just for a living but because I am happy to see them smile and get excited when they catch a fish.
Operating my Charter Boat is all I do 24/7, every single day. From October to July, I run my charter boat in Palm Beach, Florida. For the rest of the year, I run charter and party boats in Belmar and Point Pleasant, New Jersey. To pass the time, I fish both inshore and offshore, and my favorite catches are fluke, sea bass, bluefish, tuna, and mahi.
Maybe you wonder if I ever get fed up from doing this my whole life. Fishing for 24 hours a day for over 46 years- who’s crazy enough to do that, right? But, let me share with you the things that make me keep going: excitement and passion.
I wake up every day, board my boat, and sail to the sea, and what fuels me to do that my whole life is that I never know who is going to show up at the dock. I never know what surprises we are going to catch each trip. Every day is a new experience. That’s what makes it so much fun and exciting.
Another thing that keeps me going each day is the kids I board on Tuna Wahoo with me. All of my favorite guide experiences involve young kids. They light up when we start catching fish, the questions don’t end, and I know I am lighting a spark to keep the fishing tradition going. It makes me feel that I have a greater purpose for being a guide and a fisherman, and that purpose is to keep the fire of fishing tradition alive and burning.
I am excited to meet you. Let's catch some fish!
