Big Pine Key, United States

Background
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
Techniques
My passion is flats fishing for Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit. But I like to after Redfish and Snook wherever I can find them. I have passion for saltwater fly fishing because I feel like it's very challenging and it's more competitive. 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. There is excitement and frustration but the competitiveness is what drives me.

Went fishing on Thursday, January 19, 2017

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
