Captain Bob is a Florida native, born and raised in Dunedin, Florida which is located in Pinellas County.

This includes Honeymoon Island area, Clearwater, upper Tampa Bay, and around the surrounding area. It didn't take long to realize fishing came naturally to him, and he would do it for a living.

Captain Bob also fishes Boca Grande for tarpon the ultimate trophy catch. Captain Bob has won countless tournaments in North Pinellas, all the way to Boca Grande. He has been on several radio and television shows, and is well respected among his colleagues, friends... who are fellow Captains.
