GZ Pro Team Capt. Teddy Hoogs

Born and raised in Kona, Teddy was brought up learning the trade from his well-established father, Peter Hoogs. Teddy has over 20 years in these calm Kona waters and is highly experienced in the tournament circuit with numerous wins to his credit. Despite his deep respect for the industry in the islands, his love of fishing has taken him throughout the world. His travels include the west coast of Africa, Portugal, and six black marlin seasons on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Teddy is no stranger to big fish; one notable catch is a 1389 lb. Black Marlin that he wired, which still reigns as the 4th largest in Australian history. 

His tournament success continues to impress; earning him InTheBite's Captain of the Year for 2019.  He has also recently captained his team to winning the Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series in back to back years 2018 and 2019.  Teddy is another humble captain not quick to boast on his many accomplishments in big game fishing; he prefers to let his fishing speak for itself, and speak it does. In the sportfishing world, there are few names that are as well respected as Teddy Hoogs.

Teddy can be found full-time now running the beautiful Bwana in Kona, Hawaii where he resides.
