E74 – Captain Kevin Wartberg on Tournament Fishing and Being Humble

Inshore Interviews Podcast


This Inshore Interviews veteran joins us 73 episodes later to share what he has learned.

Kevin was the very first guest on Inshore Interviews, where he shared how he got into inshore fishing and some of his favorite tackle, such as the K-Dub Rig.

Since then he has come a long way as an inshore angler. He has learned new techniques, new tackle and got into redfish tournaments and charter fishing.

Last year me and Kevin fished the Louisiana Saltwater Series together.

The Series took us from Delacroix, to Venice and all the way to Big Lake.

I know that fishing across Louisiana, under pressure, in different waters has made me a phenomenally better angler. It’s the exact same for Kevin!

We learned what tackle works best and which techniques are most effective. We even picked up new skill sets along the way, which has made us more lethal in all conditions.

Kevin continued tournament fishing this year with Kris Robert Team Titos in the Redfish Series. Kris Robert was my guest in Episode 34.

[thrive_text_block color=”blue” headline=””]Sadly, I opted out of tournaments so I could focus on building the Blog and better serving my following.[/thrive_text_block]

Tournament fishing isn’t the only thing Kevin has going on. He has since earned his captain’s license and now runs Elite Fishing Adventures, an inshore fishing charter based in Hopedale, Louisiana.

Captain Kevin has enjoyed success as a charter captain, but also enjoyed dropping knowledge bombs in this episode.
