Depending on the fish you decide to target, you’ll be able to try out a variety of fishing techniques such as trolling, bottom fishing, live baiting, and fly fishing.

All other fishing tackle will also be provided by the captain, you’ll be equipped with world-class Shimano and Penn gear as well as an assortment of artificial lures. Live bait will either be caught at the beginning of the trip or just ahead of it, either way, it’s included in the price.

You’ll also have a cooler with ice and bottled water that you can also use for any other food and drinks you chose to bring. Other than that, don’t forget your sunglasses and sun protection.

Captain Ricky grew up on the water and has been tied to it in one way or another his whole life. He's been fishing the Treasure Coast since he was a youngster, getting familiar with the behavior of local fish and learning the best fishing spots to target them at. He went on to get his Captain's License in 2014 and he started sharing his vast knowledge with guests ever since. Regardless of the species you're looking to target he'll know where to find it. If it swims in these waters, captain Ricky has caught it numerous times.
