I welcome all experience levels , whether you are a tournament fisherman or a first time bass fisherman I will work to make your day on the water a great one. Fishing is my second passion , family is my first. I have taught my wife, daughter ,sons and granddaughters all how to fish. I would enjoy helping to teach yours.

Many people wonder why they should use a guide, it's simple. Children of all ages like feeling as though they are included in the family’s plans and activities, a fishing trip with a professional fishing guide is a great way to teach lifelong skills, to instill some responsibility in children while having fun. Children will not remember their best day of TV, but they will never forget their best day of fishing while on family vacation.

Rick played college football at Bowling Green State University and commissioned as a second lieutenant in the US Army. After twenty five years of active duty service Rick and his family moved to Naples, FL where he has been guiding since 2011.
Rick has fished all over the country while in the military. When he is not fishing he is very active with the local fishing clubs and at the professional level with the FLW Costa / BFL series and the American Bass Angler Southern Division.
Rick is literally on the water every week preparing for a fishing guide or professional tournament.

The main lakes that I focus on are Lake Okeechobee, Golden Gate Canal System, Lake Trafford and the Everglades.
Rick’s favorite guide trip is located in Marco Island. Think – beautiful scenery, beaches, dolphins and plenty of fish!
Growing up around a professional guide gave me the aspirations to become a professional captain myself. When I was 21 years old, I joined the Coast Guard to learn more about the water and to serve my nation. After 6 years of active duty and guiding whenever I could, I gained a lot of wisdom and experience to help push me forward in my career.
I am experienced in fishing on Lake Okeechobee or the Everglades for Largemouth Bass. As well, I service from Stuart to Palm Beach for inshore fishing. Hop on board my 20ft Action Craft and let’s get you on that fish of a lifetime. If you are looking to catch saltwater species or freshwater species, I am your Captain. I look forward to seeing you on the water next time!
