C.A. Richardson


  • Born: Charleston, SC in 1965
  • Hometown: St. Petersburg, FL
  • Boat: Marquesa
  • Fishing Hole: Anywhere on Florida's West Coast
  • Lure: Top water plug (Mirrolure)

Born in Charleston, SC in 1965, C.A.'s family relocated to St. Petersburg, FL in 1967 where he honed his angling skills on the beaches, piers, and inshore flats of Tampa Bay. C.A. is seasoned professional angler who's competed from North Carolina all away around to Texas, including the Caribbean. In 2001, he started his popular "Flats Class" inshore fishing school to compliment his Flats Class Charter business. This popular fishing school travels around the southeast educating anglers through C.A.'s unique power-point presentation and features many regional inshore pros. In 2007, Flats Class TV debuted on the national outdoor networks and was an instant hit with anglers eager to learn inshore fishing techniques from the pros! He has gained the reputation over the years as "the inshore guide" to hire when it comes to fishing artificial baits. C.A. spends 200+ days a year stalking shallow water game fish with his clients and filming Flats Class TV.

"I've fished dozens of flats skiffs in my professional career, some good and some not so good. Eventually, it all boils down quality and performance for serious anglers and that's exactly what the Hell's Bay Marquesa delivers. My Hell's Bay Marquesa provides me with truly unmatched performance… from its smooth, dry ride, to its ability to negotiate super skinny water without making a sound. Come experience the Hell's Bay difference like I did… I promise flats fishing will never be the same! "
-Capt. C.A. Richardson, Host & Founder of FCTV
