captain_1Captain Randal Yates is a Florida native with over 20 years experience fishing here in South Florida as well as around the world. Growing up fishing the local waters off Palm Beach has given him a wealth of local knowledge that has consistently allowed him to be one of the top captains in the area. Captain Randal has run both private and charter boat operations for many years and has had the opportunity to fish some of the World’s best fishing grounds. He has spent years chasing Sailfish and Marlin in exotic locations such as the Bahamas, Bermuda, Madeira, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Mexico, and Panama to name a few. For the last few years, he has concentrated on fishing the Mid Atlantic canyons in the summer season with great success and many days of double digit White Marlin and Sailfish catches.

Whether fishing off the coast of Palm Beach or the canyons of the Mid Atlantic, his experience, coupled with his love of fishing, is guaranteed to make your trip a memorable one. With multiple tournament wins worldwide, experience fishing in the local waters and a friendly easygoing personality, a fishing trip with Captain Randal and the crew of the Miss Annie is one that is sure to be full of action and fun.
