With a saddened heart I learned of the passing of Richard Hightower! Richard and his family are mainstays in the fishing business and especially the Long Range industry. I was lucky to have fished alongside Richard on his Newell trips and received numerous side glances because I favored Trinidad’s! Richard I will never forget the 10 day that John Grabowski ran and we caught Wahoo until we had loaded the boat.

Here’s to your 100lb Hoo in Heaven! Until we meet again my friend!
Dale

Richard will be missed by all. Enjoyed being is friend, his salty advise, and sharing coffee with him. He had such a passion for SD long range fishing. Great memories. I remember him dumping someone’s hook over board, since they were the wrong brand, then giving him twice as many Hayabusa hook. He was generous will all the swag and raffles

I’ll miss his chats, his advise and his laugh.

My sympathy to all his family and friends. We all miss you Richard.

Rest In Peace brother. I always looked forward to fishing his trips, he had such a passion for wahoo fishing it was infectious. Truly a class act, my prayers go out to his family.

Richard was a good guy. When I worked as a retail buyer and he would come in for a meeting it would consist of 20 minutes of getting business done and an hour of talking fishing. I regret that I never had the opportunity to share the rail with him.
