After 15 years in the charter fishing business and a lifetime as a fisherman, Capt. Rick Bennett, better known as the Rod-Man, is retiring from the day to day activities as a charter boat captain. The Rod-Man however is not retiring from the business of fishing.

Capt. Rick will operate his business in two different areas. First, he will offer an “ON YOUR BOAT” Guided Fishing Trip. This is a great option for those that have a boat and want to learn and enhance their own fishing experience. Capt. Rick will show you the when, the where and the how. From rod and reel selection to terminal tackle to bait, Capt. Rick has the know how.

Second, Capt. Rick will continue building his custom fishing rods. A custom rod builder for over 25 years, the Rod-Man has crafted thousands of high quality fishing rods. From a 2 wt. fly rod to a 130 pound class bluewater rod, he has built them all. He is also available to teach you how to build your own rods. Please visit Build Your Own Custom Fishing Rod.
