Capt. Andy Glynn & The Ridla Fleet
Fishing has been something of a second nature to me. At the age of 7, I would catch sun fish behind my parents house, and take them on my bike two miles up the road to the pickerel and bass pond to live-line them. At 11, I was captain of my first boat, a wooden Delano skiff, and I would fish for striped bass.
I hand-lined my first blue fin tuna out of a 14-foot sears aluminum skiff out at Stellwagon Bank. After that moment, the quest for giant tuna fishing along the East Coast consumed my life, and took me on many adventures. In 1987, I took a boat from Green Harbor, Massachusetts to Key West, Florida, and fell in love with the place. The fishing Key West offers is awesome– simple as that.
Over the last two decades, family and lobstering have been a major focus in my fishing career. Lobstering has opened a sustainable business avenue for me, while fishing for tuna and charters maintained their ebbs and flows.
Three years ago I fished my 22-footer out of Marathon Key and Key West. The 2015 season I fished with several friends in the Keys. All of my current charters are done on my off my 27-foot Conch, with brand new twin 200 yamahas. The new boat is called the Ridla Too. We will be fishing out of Yacht Clubs Of America where you gain access to all of the Yacht Club’s amenities for the day, that includes a beautiful pool, private beach, world class restaurant that will cook your catch, showers, and a gym.
Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!
