Captain
Rick Barberi

Member since February 2016 Pensacola Beach, United States
Background
Captain Rick has been fishing since before he can remember. He's a native to the area so grew up on these waters, learning everything there is to know about inshore and offshore fishing. He loves seeing that rod bend, and especially enjoys going after offshore species. If he had to choose one type of fishing for the rest of his life, it would be dragging teasers and pitch-baiting Marlin.
