Pictured above in his 2nd consecutive championship in the "Extreme Bahamas" Tournament. Follow him on Instagram @pushinwaterkayakcharters . Brian was raised in the North West Suburbs of Chicago. His passion for fishing started at a young age catching Bluegill, Carp and Bass in neighborhood lakes and rivers. During his adolescence he made yearly trips to Minnesota in search of Walleye, Northen Pike, Crappie and Muskie. From age 13 to 18 he was making yearly trips to Florida fishing the beaches for Snook and Tarpon. Once Brian graduated college he decided he needed to make the move to the place where fishing could be a year-round activity. Since 2006 Brian has been kayak fishing the inshore, nearshore and offshore waters of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches. Since 2009 he has been fishing kayak tournaments all around Florida.

Growing up fishing the lakes , creeks and rivers of Victoria Texas it didn't take long for Robb to adjust to the salt life that Corpus Christi has to offer . Primarily fishing the Upper Laguna Madre Robb prefers wading the green waters of the Laguna. As a avid Kayaker Robb enjoys sightcasting to Reds in the marshes of Nueces Bay and gin-clear waters of Aransas , Copano and surrounding areas. Robb's passion for the saltwater has brought on another interest such as photography. Being in the right place at the right time to capture that specific moment on film is what he enjoys .

Current Laguna Costa ProStaff
"Born and raised in southeast Texas about 10 minutes from Galveston, I started out hunting the public back lakes and marshes along the gulf coast at the age of 7. I'll have to admit I wouldn't be the hunter I am today if it weren't for my father. Countless hours of watching and learning his ways of waterfowling, from learning how and when to call, to blind placement and decoy strategies. Over the years I've guided for a couple outfitters, I've been on hunts on private leases, but in all honesty nothing can beat the feeling of going out on public land, finding your birds and grinding out an awesome hunt. It's tough hunting and most of the time you walk out of there with nothing to show, but the days where you can't seem to fit another duck on the strap are the ones you remember for a life time. Put in work, hunt hard and pray to God the ducks fly." Instagram: @fuller_01
