Captain Bob Ingles, owner/operator of the Queen of Hearts, will be running the boat to view the surfers.
Capt. Bob has operated charter boats out of the harbor for over 25 years, longer than anyone else currently running, and operated or decked on boats for over 35 years. He is also well accustomed to shooting the breakers: he grew up on boards and boats in Southern California, fished for striped bass by backing 50 and 60 foot boats in the breakers along the beaches between San Francisco and Pacifica back in the 70s and 80s, and makes his living now primarily fishing shallow water along the San Mateo coastline. Her captain (my husband) is Bob Ingles. Bob has run more trips out of Half Moon Bay over the past 25 years than anyone else currently running and noone knows the San Mateo coastline and reefs better. He is one of the few captains in the Bay Area and the only captain currently running out of Half Moon Bay who ran striped bass trips along the beach where they back the boats into the surfline, closer to shore than the surfers themselves, and shoot the breakers, backing down or gunning ahead to meet the oncoming waves properly.

Please take a minute to send a letter in support of Bob Ingles, captain of the Queen of Hearts, for California's recreational appointment to the Pacific Fishery Management Council.
I am writing to support the nomination of Robert C. Ingles to replace Don Hansen on the Pacific Fishery Management Council. Bob has been an integral part of the PFMC family since 2002 as a member of the Groundfish Advisory Subpanel since 2004. He will bring a balanced viewpoint to the Council. We believe it is critical to maintain the representation of the recreational charter fishing industry on the PFMC. Charter fishing vessels not only provide fishing opportunity to those who cannot afford their own boats, but they provide safe and efficient transportation for whale-watchers, birding trips, and other types of eco-tours. Bob has been a member of the board of directors for the Golden Gate Fishermen's Association, a steady and engaged member of the west coast groundfish management advisors, and has experience with both commercial and recreational fisheries in Southern and Northern California. His fishing boat, The Queen of Hearts, is one of the most popular operations out of Half Moon Bay. Thousands of California's recreational anglers have looked to Captain Bob when they needed safe conveyance, successful fishing and whalewatching for over 20 years. His on-the-water experience will be critical to west coast fishery management. We trust Bob to guide us on the important decisions facing the Council in the future.
