Captain Bob hooked up with two fantastic captains in 2018 after acquiring two elusive Halibut charter permits. He bought them as an excuse to buy the "Ravyness", then "Tuff Stuff," thinking he could tag along and get to fish when he wasn't remodeling apartments into Lodge Studios or working for Alaskan Mental Health – great decision! They have caught tons of fish and seem to have improved the mental health of many an angler – the captain himself included.
