Captain Bob Hovey

I grew up a Florida boy fishing the southeast coast of Florida and the Keys. During my 12 year career, I have fished cobalt blue water off of every state along the East Coast and down along the Gulf.  I have guided blue fin tuna trips off Cape Cod and fished sailfish tournaments down in Miami and the Keys.  

I found myself in Venice, Louisiana a few years ago and have discovered it is truly one of the top fishing destinations in the United States. The variety of fish you can catch in a single day is like no where else. I have been blue water fishing since I could skip school and Venice is hands down, where I belong. 

“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
