Captain Rick started fishing Bass tournaments at the young age of 10. He is incredibly passionate about fishing and loves being on the water to enjoy the natural views of nature.
He became a fisherman because he loves to teach and help beginners learn, and because he loves helping people from all walks of life catch fish!
In his spare time, Captain Rick fishes local tournaments for Sailfish and other pelagic fish species, and he has placed against some of the best talent in the world.
Hop on board with Captain Rick and prepare for an action-packed day of offshore fishing in the Atlantic! Riviera Beach provides easy access to the productive inshore and offshore waters that Florida is known for. On this half, 3/4 or full-day trip, Captain Rick will take you a few miles off the West coast of Florida where you'll be going after some exciting Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Wahoo. You'll be targeting these fish using methods such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling and jigging. Whether you want to fish with a rod in your hand, sit back and wait for a reel to start screaming, or do whatever your favorite species has been biting recently, Captain Rick will have you covered! Captain Rick fishes aboard a 28' Contender center console with a guest capacity of five. The boat can make 50 knots, which means no time is wasted traveling from the dock to areas you want to fish! She comes with all the necessary safety features and up-to-date electronics, including navigational aids and fish finders. There’s a restroom on board, a well for live bait, and a cooler for drinks. There will be a first mate on board in addition to Captain Rick to help you fish and show you how to use equipment that may be new to you. At the end of the cruise, the mate will clean and filet your tasty catches for you to take home! Captain Rick will provide all fishing rods, reels, tackle, lures, live bait, and other necessities. He'll even get you the required fishing licenses. All you need to bring is any food or drinks you might want. Captain Rick encourages family charters and his trips are child friendly. These trips fit up to 5 guests, so bring along some good company and get ready to catch some fish! Read More
Ricky took care of everything. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a great experience. Two sailfish, kingfish and a few that cut the line before we could get them off the bottom. The experience was worth every penny.
The captain’s driving skills are very good, and he will stop to avoid bumps before there are big waves. The catch was good too, we caught a big Mahi for my dinner.
Captain Rick was the best he was patient and kind took us out went slow for the first part of the morning and he moved us into a better spot and then we start catching the afternoon turned into beautiful worked out well caught fish I would recommend Captain Rick thank you again Captain Rick for all your work you did for us hard work make sure that we went home with fish …
Outstanding experience, pulled out 7 Sailfish. Highly recommend using them for your deep sea fishing adventures
I requested to target Dolphin, even though it is low season. Capt. Rick put us on a weed line that was unusual for this time of year, and we put 3 keeper Dolphin and 5 tuna in the box. Let several other Dolphin go to grow bigger for next time. Had a wonderful time with the Capt. and he was wonderful with my kids. Spent a little time at the end chasing barracuda (landed a big one!) to excite the kids. Can’t wait til next time. …
Right from the get-go Rick asked me what kind I targeted and I told him that I was looking for a sailfish. From there on Rick and Max worked hard to catch one. After 30 minutes we had a first bite and I reeled it in a beautiful sailfish. Shortly after we had a second sailfish bite, but I lost that one unfortunately. Rick took his time to explain everything in detail and made sure I understand everything what was going on. From the beginning those guys made me feel like a friend and it was fun as hell being out on the water with them. Unfortunately my better half got seasick immediately after the trip started and was struggling badly, so we went back in after 2 hours. Nevertheless it was a trip to remember, an awesome experience and I caught my very first sailfish thanks to these guys. Special thanks to 1st Mate Max! …
I needed some blue water therapy before the holiday season and made a quick one day trip to Florida to fish with Capt. Rick. The weather didn’t cooperate and a front kept us from going offshore because the seas were 7-9. Rick kept us inshore and we fished all day around the inlet, landing a few barracudas and lost a few fish too. The boat (Contender) was clean and a nice set up to fight fish. The gear was in great shape and Rick clearly takes care of it. I can’t wait to get back down to south Florida to fish with Rick again in February! …
