Howie Strech is a San Diego based kayak angler and one of the masterminds behind Hobie Fishing.

Howie’s home waters have seen record setting seasons with high numbers of tuna flooding the California coast. A dedication to the craft sets his pre-dawn wake up call and charts his course to the open sea beyond. With over 20 miles logged on the paddles in an average day, he knows all too well that everything tastes better when you’ve put in the blood, sweat, and sore muscles for it.
