Capt. Richard has been fishing since he was 10 years old, and it's fair to say that angling is one of his biggest passions. He likes to say that he was born into it, so it was only natural that he'd find a way to turn this passion into his full-time job! He runs Xtreme Off The Beach Charters, which introduce anglers to fishing from a whole new perspective – rather than heading out on a boat, all adventures take place from various shorelines all over Florida and Georgia. Capt. Richard's charter started out as a land-based fishing team that participated in different Red Drum and Shark tournaments off the beach. He saw how popular this type of fishing was, not just with hardcore fishermen, but also with families and budding anglers. Now, he works alongside 9 other guides to provide incredible, unique adventures across two states – and even better, they're suitable for the whole family! Anglers of all ages and skill levels are warmly welcomed to try out this incredible style of fishing.
