Rick Thompson

Captain Rick specializes in run and gun style multiple species fish hunts, with a current record of 11 species in a single 6-hour outing. With professional fishing reaching back to his service as an Ambassador of Chesapeake Bay Conservation, Captain Rick volunteers with several state and local groups geared towards preservation of our fisheries. Captain Rick now calls Myrtle Grove Marina (Port Sulphur, LA) home, and shares his love of the Salt Life (both spin and fly fishing) with clients of all skill levels.


When did you first get involved with Salt Life?
After learning that long sleeved fishing gear was not just a fad (in 2012), I tried several brands and quickly became a proponent of Salt Life. Once family obligation pulled me (kicking and screaming) from chasing Rockfish on the Chesapeake, I headed home to New Orleans, LA with saltwater on the brain. In September of 2020 I was given an opportunity to join the Salt Life Team, and no thought was required. Now I spend over 250 days a year running from the wake and working to “Get’em Out of the Water!”
