Kissing Fish On Boat

Meet Your Captain

Retired USCGR Captain Bob Cosby loves the ocean and loves bringing people out to experience it with him. A Jacksonville native, he has fished the local waters since he was a small child, creating memories with his grandparents as he tried to catch big ones from bridges, piers, and in the surf. This passion followed him into his adult life when, in 1986, he earned his 50-ton Master’s license.

In his free time, Captain Bob enjoys fly fishing in Montana, Alaska, and even Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He has owned several offshore boats throughout his life and has spent a considerable amount of time catching marlin, sailfish, wahoo, tuna, Atlantic salmon, Pacific Salmon, trout, and large sharks. At the end of the day, however, there is nothing he enjoys more than fishing the local inshore and nearshore saltwater of Northeast Florida!
