Hi, my name is Captain Robert Horachek from Kingfisher Backcountry Charters, Inc. I have lived in the Keys most of my life and have been fishing since I was a kid. Over 20 years later, I established “Kingfisher Backcountry Charters, Inc.” which was named after my late uncle’s charter boat called “Kingfisher”. He was a great angler and charter captain who inspired me to NEVER give up. I’m hoping to make a new legacy in honor of him. So come and join me as we go after Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, and other flats/backcountry species throughout the Florida Keys! Experienced and non experienced anglers of all ages are welcome.

As a lifelong resident here in the Florida Keys, my experience on the water has been a journey with many achievements, including junior master angler in both the Key West fishing Tournament and the South Florida MET Tournament. Other notable catches were an 80lb Wahoo that I caught when I was 13 years old. The Wahoo was a former junior world record holder through the IGFA. My goal and mission statement is to provide the best professional guide service by achieving success out on the water with lasting memories and stories to be told.

About the Captain

Member since May 2015
I have over 20 years of experience fishing in the Florida Keys. I fished a lot offshore with my dad, uncle, and cousin for most of my life. I decided to start fishing inshore for the visual experience of sight fishing the flats for spooky fish. The Adrenaline rush is there kinda like seeing a 12 point buck walking into bow range or hitting a grand slam home home to put your baseball team ahead to win the game. To me

My son ,age 12, and I had a great time fishing. We were always catching or hooking something. When we weren’t, Rob adjusted tactics so that we were catching fish again. Would book with him again when back in the keys.

Fishing with Captain Bob Horachek was a pleasure.  He is a very knowledgeable charter captain.  He knows where to put you on fish.  Caught Bonefish and had numerous opportunities on tarpon!  He makes you feel very comfortable and at home.  Great day!  Dean Vervoort
