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.

Capt. Robert was outstanding. Very personable, informative, and attentive. He really knew where to find fish and worked hard on a hot July day to do so. We caught several tarpon as well as a bonefish and a permit.
Great fishing experience!
Recommend highly.

Capt Robert was excellent! He definitely put us on the fish. Mid July is a tough time but Capt Robert was amble to locate several schools of tarpon and then went and caught bonefish. Highly recommended!

Capt.Robert worked hard, was very informative & a good companion. Learned a lot from him & had a very good time.
He has a nice flats rig with a115 hp motor & quality tackle. He also takes good photos.

Thank you for the review Per. Enjoy the rest of your trip in Key West.

Great fishing experience….I’m use to just throwing the bait in the water and wait for a fish to come. Capt. Bob kept us baited up and pointed out the fish as they approached. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone that loves fishing.

Perfect day. Captain Bob took us to great spots. Caught a Baracudda on the first cast and we continued to catch fish all day. Captain also helped up bait our lines, take fish off hooks and shared his local knowledge of the waters. Definitely would come again. Nice Sea Trout in the pic!

Hello David,

I appreciate the review and I look forward to possibly fishing with you again soon!

Went fishing on Monday, March 20, 2017

What a great experience for our first time fishing on a charter.  Robert was very attentive to our want to catch fish and have none stop action versus waiting for the big one.  He got us on the fish and we had none stop action!  He was very informative.  We caught several different species, the most fun to catch was the permit!  He has a cooler on board for your beverages and snacks.
Thanks for a great time Robert!

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.

Thanks Rich next time you come back to the Keys we will see about adding that Bonefish to the list.

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
