Episode 85: Capt. Ray Rosher – Sailfish, Marlin, & Tuna
I am always intrigued by the big blue water world and pelagic species that swim there and perhaps it’s because I am not an avid offshore guy. Sure, I know about the standard tactics, rigging, and the general vicinity on where to fish, but when you speak to someone as in tune as Ray is – the typical fish talk quickly escalates to something much more fascinating. On today’s podcast, Ray conducts a master class on very interesting topics from bait handling to hook up ratios and everything in between.
If you live in South Florida and enjoy offshore fishing, there is a good chance you have heard of Capt. Ray Rosher. Ray is a third generation Miami Fisherman that has spent more than 40 years as a full time fishing charter captain. He and his crew have attained more than 30 tournament wins and continue to be a leading force in the sailfish circuit. Rosher operates out of the famous “Miss Britt I” & “Miss Britt II” which are 34 and 43 foot Sportfishers. He also owns R & R Tackle which is a manufacturer of quality saltwater fishing products including bait rigs, jigs, mahi lures, wahoo lures, deep drop rigs, bait pens, and dehookers. With all of his accomplishments on and off the water, he will be recognized by the IGFA in October to receive the Tommy Gifford Award cementing him into the Captains and Crew Hall of Fame.
When he is not on the water fishing, he loves spending quality time with his family. Hunting, air boating, and frogging are among his other passions because of the tranquilly and solitude. Ray is a straight shooter who has no ego and tells it how it is. He is a wonderful teacher, captain, leader, and a better family man. We hope you all enjoy his story…
