Fly + Light Tackle Fishing Charters

Hunt and catch Redfish, Trout, Snook and Tarpon in Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach

Captain Rick Hilliard

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! 


The Experience

Hunting Redfish in the shallows on fly or light tackle is one of the most exciting experiences in fishing. This is my passion. My goal is to put you into a position where you can spot, cast at and catch a fish, all while watching the process. If hunting isn’t your thing, I also love targeting trout, snook, and tarpon in the back country and around structure. You will experience some of the coolest and most unique wildlife/scenery that Florida has to offer.
