Captain
Rick Trussell

Member since July 2017 Ponce Inlet, United States
Background
Originally from Maryland, I fished in Ocean City for many years, going 72 miles out to the Baltimore and Washington canyons. My father bought me my first 14' tri-hull with a 25 HP Johnson engine when I was 14 years old. We fished the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay with that boat, which I actually brought with me down to Florida in 1994. I have fished and been on the water my entire life.
Techniques
I prefer to troll. I like to have 4 or less on the boat, I use 2 outriggers and 2 downriggers, and a shotgun line at all times. I do some drift fishing but usually never set an anchor.
