Captain Richard has never looked back since he first picked up a rod. A relative latecomer to fishing, he quickly discovered that he had a talent and decided to put his talent to good use. He began fishing in tournaments, and in 2018 he finished 3rd in the Bull Red Tournament. His biggest catches include an 80 lb Cobia and 150 lb Tarpon – the envy of all good anglers. Capt. Richard decided to start running charters in early 2016, and loves communicating with people and providing a personal experience on board every trip.
