About Us

The way most people experience fishing charters is typically getting handed a rod, and then being told to crank without having the experience of hooking or being part of the action. At Living Waters Outdoor, we do things differently. Our goal is to help you be a part of as much action as possible, and experience catching as many fish as possible. Our dedicated and talented team works with you in this one-of-a-kind, hands on experience, helping you improve your jigging and popping skills in real-life scenarios. Living Waters Guide Service is a reflection of how much I love the ocean and all the types of fishing North Carolina offers. Our primary goal for your charter is to make it as memorable as possible, based on your unique set of needs.

Rick Croson

Captain

Captain Rick started the Living Waters brand as primarily a charter fishing company, however, he’s expanded the brand to also include other unique charter fishing experiences such as an exclusive lodge and instructional sessions. Captain Rick grew up on the Outerbanks in Kill Devil Hills, where he got spoiled being able to chase red drum in the surf, speckled trout in the sound, and yellowfin tuna offshore–sometimes on the same day! He was fortunate to be able to learn from some of the best captains and mates in the world, and is honored to pass on his passion and skills to the guests who attend the charters of Living Waters Outdoor. Captain Rick specializes in hands on light tackle, big fish methods. He focuses on helping his guests improve their popping and jigging in real-life offshore situations, leading to his guests catching more fish overall.

Powell Holding

First Mate

Powell grew up in a fishing family on coastal North Carolina, and has been blessed to fish with the experts such as his father, grandfather, and Captain Rick throughout his childhood. He’s fished in ponds for bass, the Atlantic for all sorts of pelagics, and even the Pacific for giant blue marlin. Powell is a committed mate to Captain Rick, exercising all the skills he’s learned over the years on the Living Waters I. His passion for fishing truly shines through as he supports the guests on the boat during each charter.
