Meet our GuidesCapt. Rick Hilliardfrom New Smyrna Beach, F

Born and raised in New Smyrna beach, I have been fishing these native waters for most of my life. Saltwater fishing is my oldest passion. Having fished all around the world, both conventional and fly, I consistently prefer sight casting redfish in Mosquito lagoon. I don’t think there is a more exciting fish to hunt. I am also passionate about hospitality and having fun. Above all else, I want to create a tailor made fishing experience for each and every person that sets foot on my boat. As far as credentials, I have my 25 ton Master captain endorsement through the USCG. Thanks for visiting and I look forward to fishing with you soon!
