Rick Scharninghausen (Rattlin Rick)

Please help us raise money for our close friend and fellow fishermen.

As many of you know, Rick has been a huge influence and mentor to many of people through out the years. He has helped out his local community as well as many of the youth fishing teams and programs across the country by donating fishing baits from his small custom lure business known as Lockhart lures for fundraisers, etc.  I can personally say Rick has been a huge influence on me for the last 30+ years that I have known him. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need and still would to this day. He is a great person and I am honored to call him one of my brothers! 

Rick has recently had some pretty devastating news about his health again.  Most of you know Rick lost a leg years and years ago in a motorcycle accident which never slowed him down, he continued to do what he loved and that was fish and hunt! Due to unforeseen medical issues he lost his other leg a couple years ago. In recent weeks his health has taken a turn for the worst and is in need of some financial help. 

As many of you know Rick is a very strong willed person and doesn't ask for help from anyone, he would rather help someone then to receive help.  His only source of income is his small lures shop and with his current medical situation he is unable to sustain his business and income. He is in need of a few critical items to help with his day to day life for example a new wheel chair, ramp up to his shop and front door of his home, along with expenses back and forth to the doctors daily until he can heal and get back to his passion of lure building.

Please find it in your hearts to make a small donation to one heck of a man and mentor. He is in need and we need to pull together to help our fellow friend and brother!
