Hawkins began the first Caps store in a recession and develop the idea of a store that not only sold bait and tackle but also tackled the difficulties of recruiting kids more interested in video gaming than the pursuit of fish and game.

Captain Bob's Outdoors seeks to keep families together, one fish at a time. For your next fishing or hunting trip in Clarence, NY, stop by Captain Bob's Outdoors for your fishing and hunting equipment needs! Let our experts help you today - visit Captain Bob's Outdoors.
