About Captain Bob Cosby

Captain Bob Cosby is a retired USCGR Captain and has had a 50-ton Master's license since 1986. He is a Jacksonville native and has fished the local waters since he was a small child with his grandparents from bridges, piers, and in the surf.

In his free time he enjoys fly fishing the spring creeks of Montana; fly fishing for Pacific salmon and trout in Alaska, and/or for Atlantic salmon in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He has owned several offshore boats and has caught marlin, sailfish, wahoo, tuna, and large sharks. However, he enjoys fishing the local inshore and nearshore saltwaters of Northeast Florida the most!
