Meet The Team & Testers
Official Team - Dennis Verreet
Dennis Verreet is a professional German lure fisherman who has traveled all around the world catching huge fish from the shore. He is probably best known for his three huge Yellowfin Tuna he caught off the rocks, weighing 73, 94 and 104 kg. Dennis used to get sea sick on boats, thats why he fished off the rocks pretty much his whole life, just to discover about 5 years ago that he is totally fine on boats. That’s when he bought a boat in Australia where he lives now and started fishing the east coast of Australia on the Great Barrier Reef to catch pretty much everything big that pulls some line. He still returns to the rocks every now and then to target big game fish. Dennis: ” I just love a good challenge! It is so much harder and way more rewarding to land a big fish from the rocks than out of a boat!”
Official Team - Ryan Morie
Ryan Morie was born in Jupiter Florida and grew up fishing his local waters in any way he could.
In his high school years he was nicknamed "Juno Ryan" from his time spent fishing the Juno Beach Fishing Pier. During this time he developed a passion for catching fish such as cobia, permit, kingfish, and snook.
Shortly before commissioning into the United States Marine Corps, Ryan started making fishing videos for YouTube. While serving on active duty he continued to create fishing videos during his free time. These videos documented multiple new fisheries such as Virginia Beach, Okinawa Japan, and Beaufort South Carolina.
Since transitioning from active duty, Ryan has taken on the challenge of being a content creator full time. He fishes, films, and edits content for YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Tiktok. His current content documents many different fisheries and techniques, from his local inlets in Eastern Florida, to international fisheries such as Panamá.
Check him out on YouTube for quality entertainment or information on his current fishing endeavors."

Official Tester - Louisiana Bluewater Charter
Captain Bob Hovey
USA - Venice, Louisiana www.labluewater.com
I grew up a Florida boy fishing the Southeast Coast of Florida and the Keys. During my 16 year career as a Rescue Swimmer in the United States Coast Guard, I had the opportunity to move to many coastal cities and learn a new fishery and technique in each area. I have fished cobalt blue water off of every state along the East Coast and down along the Gulf. I have guided blue fin tuna trips off Cape Cod and fished sailfish tournaments down in Miami and the Keys.
Due to military demands, I found myself in Venice, Louisiana six years ago and discovered it is truly one of the top fishing destinations in the United States. Venice, LA has one of the greatest fisheries I have ever seen. My expertise and soul resides in offshore fishing. I have seen some breath taking sunrises, caught some unbelievable fish, and created memories I will never forget. Nothing makes me happier than sharing my passion with others!
