Background
My name is Captain Rick Carl, I am a USCG licensed captain who was born and raised in the west Miami area and whose second home is Florida Bay. Growing up in the heart of the Everglades has been a blessing and an adventure, to say the least. Flats fishing for Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, and Trout is a passion for me and it is a pleasure to share it with different anglers every day. I have been fishing Flamingo Everglades National Park, Miami, Key Largo, and Islamorada for over 30 years, and for me, every trip is a new adventure. Flats and backcountry fishing is a unique way not only to fish but to experience the true nature of Florida Bay and the Florida Keys.
