Captain Bob Hovey

Bob grew up fishing off the southeast coast of Florida and the Florida Keys, where he developed a true love for blue water fishing.  His love for the ocean led him to his career in the United States Coast Guard as a Rescue Swimmer.  As he traveled to different duty stations, he expanded his Coast Guard career; as well as, his knowledge in fishing all along the East coast.  His last duty station brought him to New Orleans, Louisiana where he discovered the fishing capital of the World- VENICE, Louisiana!  He has since retired and pursues his passion for offshore fishing.

“My soul and passion resides in off-shore fishing! I have seen breathtaking sunrises, caught some amazing fish, and created unforgettable memories. Nothing in this world makes me happier than sharing my passion with others!” – Captain Bob Hovey
