Dad has a blast deep sea fishing with his three sons
Dear Mixed Bag Captain & Crew,“My sons and I would like to thank you again for teaching us the ropes on our first Caribbean Sport Fishing trip. The live bait and light tackle was great, especially for my youngest child. It was a real treat to see them casting their own rods and pulling in fish after fish. The steady action was just what we were looking for (the Shark was just the icing on the cake).
Thanks for a wonderful experience”. – Sincerely, Mike, Mitchell, Baldwin & Ty
Offshore Adventures Founded out of a True Passion for Deep Sea Sport Fishing!
Experience some of the best sport fishing throughout the world in the Virgin Islands with Offshore Adventures.Captain Robert Richards has been fishing in the Virgin Islands for over 21 years now, and he has worked for and run some of the best Sport fishing operations in the Virgin Islands. Captain Robert and his wife Marni branched out on their own and are the Founders and operators of Offshore Adventures.
The gem of their operation is called the “Mixed Bag” a 2000 Luhrs 40 Open Express. Licensed for up to six passengers, she provides a full size bathroom, air conditioning, a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee maker, a CD player, fresh water and plenty of seating. The boat is equipped with the latest electronics, top of the line fishing equipment, and plenty of shaded areas for the spectators.
All this with a huge cockpit with plenty of room to fight big game fish!
The Mixed Bag is located at the Westin Resort & Villas on St. John. The open design of the Mixed Bag II boat puts the captain close to the Fishing Cockpit where the action is. Here he can tutor anglers as necessary or assist the crew on multiple hookups.
They say, “Catch a man a fish and you feed him for a day…, but teach the man how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime!”
All trips are custom designed to fit the schedule of the angler. The types of trips offered range from inshore to offshore. Inshore trips involve the use of Live Bait and light tackle. These trips are great for kids or the angler who just wants to walk away with a “mixed bag” of fish (not to mention a worn out arm). Inshore trips tend to yield King Fish, Snappers, Black fin Tuna, Shark and Barracuda.
Offshore trips allow the adventurous angler to experience the famous North and South Drops. A mixture of trolling and live baiting in these waters can yield the size fish most of us dream of catching. Most commonly caught are Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin. But the captain constantly searches for activity on the water… or in the sky.
The goal of Offshore Adventures is to deliver an excellent charter, please the guests, and CATCH FISH. Rob’s easy going personality makes him very popular with all levels of anglers. When asked by the charter guests .what are we going to catch? Rob’s answer is it’s a mixed bag out there, a little something for everyone..
His philosophy is don’t worry about the one that got away, worry about the next one that is going to bite. has made him a hit with both locals and visitors of the United States Virgin Islands.
