I truly love my job simply because I get to meet wonderful people such as this group who never stopped giggling

I have been fishing successfully with Captain Rob for years.  Through this we have even become friends.  He is one of, if not the hardest working fisherman I know. i have personally caught every species of fish that I wanted to catch with Rob.  Rob is great with all demographics of people from young to old.  It is my belief that there is not other person in the Gulf of Mexico that loves to fish as much as Rob.  He never seems like he is actually having to work.  I am confident that this is why he is so good at what he does….he does it for the love of it!

What a terrific experience we had with Capt. Hacker.  He put us on the fish and we caught them.  Capt. Hacker was extremely professional and the boat performed great.  Clean and set up well with the proper gear for our day.  Capt. Hacker was also very prepared for anything that happened…we experienced a huge rain storm about an hour into our trip.  Our captain had rain gear and worked the entire time to satisfy our needs.  We kept fishing and he made a point to completely satisfy our craving for deep sea fishing.  We will return again to his craft for another fun filled experience in the future.  I highly recommend this boat!  5 stars in our book!

Captain Rob was a great guy. Really made the trip enjoyable for my family who had not been offshore before. Wish we could have got into some bigger fish, but that’s fishing. Great experience overall. Recommended.
