An avid bike-racer since age 12, Rick Fidanzato became skipper of ABC Bicycles at the young age of 23. In the 10 years since, Rick has opened another store and once helped a patron craft an ultra-high bike that put the rider’s seat well above the rooftops of passing cars. During the rare free moment, Rick tinkers with his '60 Cadillac and keeps plenty of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Rolling Stones mixed into his stores' eclectic playlist.
In sports, home-field advantage gives your team the upper hand. In fishing, it's actually not much different. Born and raised in St. Pete, Pocket Change's Captain Anthony knows exactly where to fish and all the ideal conditions for success on the water. During his group outings?which include tackle, bait, and lures for everyone?he leads the way as anglers haul in snook, redfish, trout, and other fish. They do so from the company's 16-foot custom skiff or its 18-foot bayboat, scouring local grass flats and reefs for their scaly targets. Afterward, Pocket Change also provides filet packaging so anglers can take their catch home to eat or to show their parents how much they continue to achieve in life.
