Capt. Ricky Congero
Ricky holds a US Coast Guard Master 100-ton license and is a commercially insured Captain.
As a youngster, he was raised fishing and hunting by his grandfather. Thanks to his grandfather’s love for the outdoors, it quickly became Ricky’s passion and he grew up fishing local ponds, lakes, and rivers.
At the age of 13, Ricky attended a Bassmaster University seminar to learn from tournament anglers and he was officially hooked on tournament bass fishing. He began fishing in a local bass fishing club.
After developing a passion for local tournament club fishing, he began fishing Bassmaster and FLW Opens in 2015 which he continues to fish along with the local tournament trails.
“Endless long days on the water and exposure to different bodies of water all over the country have made me the angler I am today and I want to share that knowledge. After a day on the water with me, I want any level of fisherman to leave with memorable experiences: Florida’s wildlife, newly learned skills, and a fishing trip of a lifetime." - Capt. Ricky Congero
All gear is provided (rods, reels, lures, terminal tackle) but you are also welcome to bring your own. Waters and ice will be available. You are more than welcome to bring any snacks, food, or drinks. Professional grade photos will be emailed to you after your trip.
What To Bring
Snacks/lunch, polarized sunglasses, hat, SPF sun shirt, buff. Rain gear (weather permitting), though I highly suggest bringing a rain jacket regardless of how warm or sunny the weather forecast may be - summer thunderstorms can get uncomfortable when wet. During cold fronts it can get chilly in Florida; you can always take layers off mid-day when it warms up. Always come prepared - I have extra storage for your belongings.
What To Expect
I offer artificial, fly fishing, and live bait guided bass trips. You will find that I work hard and will do everything in my power to put you on fish. I am a passionate angler and love more than anything to see the joy of others experiencing Florida bass fishing. Leaving you with an unforgettable fishing trip is my priority.
