At Huk Gear, we have a high standard for our fishing apparel. We create some of the finest long-sleeve fishing shirts, jackets, bibs, and fishing masks available, and everything we make is built with the angler in mind.
As a leader in the fishing apparel industry, we are proud to team up with some of the best anglers and fishing enthusiasts in the country. Our partnerships include leading bass anglers like Kevin VanDam and commercial fisherman like Wicked Tuna’s Dave Marciano.
We also partner up with some of the finest charter companies in the country, including Tenacity Guide Service, a two-person team that provides fishing excursions for numerous species throughout southwest Florida.
Tenacity Guide Service is headed by Captain Bo Johnson, a Florida native with years of experience stalking fish throughout Pine Island, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Boca Grande, and Charlotte Harbor. He spends hundreds of days every year on the water, and has been featured in multiple television shows and magazines. Captain Bo has helped his clients catch a wide variety of species, but he is best known as an expert shark guide. People from all over the country have had the chance to pull up a trophy shark thanks to Captain Bo.
Captain Bo’s first mate is Deidra Bridger, a Missouri native who fell in love with Florida’s saltwater fishing. She is an expert angler and outdoor enthusiast, helping Bo run the boat, prepare rods, catch bait, and more. She also helps clients capture the memory of their trips, taking pictures and even creating and editing videos and photos that can be shared for years.
Tenacity Guide Service excels at helping clients catch a wide variety of fish. They have helped people catch trophy tarpon, one of the most energetic and powerful fish in the water. They are also one of the top guide services for shark fishing, an activity that every angler should get to experience in their lifetimes. They can provide fishing adventures for goliath grouper, barracuda, and more, and have even chartered famous athletes like NFL star JJ Watt.
They can also provide family-friendly fishing adventures in the flats and shallows of southwest Florida. Fishing in the backcountry with Tenacity, anglers can catch redfish, permit, cobia, and more. These fish can be caught on a fly rod or on light tackle, making for one of the most interesting and exciting fishing trips around.
Tenacity Guide Service has a well-earned reputation as one of the top charters in the country, and we are proud to be affiliated with these passionate anglers.

You often hear the phrase there is nothing more important than a friend but like many other clichés of life especially at today’s pace, many of these old time sayings are said without really understanding their meaning. As I look back at the past five decades of my life spent in blue water and at my hunting career which has taken me all over the globe, I lift both hands in front of me and start counting off the friends which I could call at any time day or night for help; those who would put their life in jeopardy to save mine, or for that matter those who I can count on in the absolute worst of situations.
America (and much of the globe) seems to have an obsession with billfish, but few species are as popular as the Atlantic blue marlin. Not that there is anything wrong with black marlin, sailfish, swordfish, or striped marlin; it’s just that the blue marlin, which is the largest of the billfish group, has captured the hearts and passions of anglers for centuries.
If you want to join the ranks of anglers who’ve pulled up a blue marlin, you have your work cut out for you. But with the right techniques, you can add this world-class trophy to your list.
