Text Box: Captain Rick has worked his way up the ladder of charter fishermen, having first started as a part-time mate some twenty years ago.  Now, after teaching middle school  for 44 years, the captain is retiring from the traditional classroom environment and turning his love for teaching and fishing into a fulltime practice with RLCharters, where not only will Capt. Rick take you to where the fish are plenty, he can teach you how to catch them, too.   
With his love for Tangier Island Capt. Rick delights in trips that incorporate a morning of fishing on his 32’ Blackfin Sport Fisherman followed by a pleasant sightseeing tour and lunch on the island. Then it’s back on the water to complete the afternoon with more fishing.  
A longtime member of the Virginia Charter Boat Association, Capt. Rick has served as Treasurer for nearly a decade.  He is also a member of the National Association of Charterboat Operators, and has recently been appointed to the Virginia Marine Resource Commission’s Finfish Management Advisory Council.  
He supports all efforts to maintain & strengthen natural resources and habitats.
