Welcome to Offshore Innovations.
"Excellence"- Is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think possible...
"Innovation"- The best way to predict the future...is to create it...by acting on a good idea...and not just having one...
Offshore Innovations’ was born of necessity. Necessity to find better methods and equipment, to do the things we do. To make inferior products superior, to make the gear we use everyday catch more fish, to eliminate unnecessary gear failure, and to land bigger fish safer and faster. All of Offshore Innovations’ products are prototyped and tested by some of the finest fishermen in the country. Each and every product we sell has unique features that set us above and beyond the competition, not because we are good businessmen, but because we are true fishermen.
We are proud of our products and the developments we have made, and will continue in our quest of creating the finest Big Game tackle available. Offshore Innovations is not only a business but a lifelong passion to be the best we can be. Our goals are to bring quality, consistency, and price to each and every big game fisherman worldwide and always be in the pursuit of “Excellence and Innovation”.
Capt. Kevin Glynn
Kevin was a native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, and grew up fishing the waters around Cape Cod and New England. From the time Kevin was 12 yrs. old, he spent the majority of his summers living in Falmouth, MA working as a mate on locally based sport fishing charter boats. Kevin earned his 100 ton captains license at the age of 18 yrs. He earned bachelor degrees in Marine Affairs and Fisheries Management from the University of Rhode Island in 1999. Kevin then set his sights on Florida and more year round employment fishing the waters of south Florida and the Bahamas. Taking the helm of a 61 Viking at the age of 23, he was thrust into the competitive world of big game tournament fishing. He has fished the waters from Gloucester, Ma. to the Caribbean. During his 14-year career he won and placed in a wide variety of major sport fishing events. Kevin thrived on the competitive nature of our sport and set goals above and beyond what some may think possible and determined to achieve them. In 2006, Kevin founded Offshore Innovations, a tackle company which creates and distributes cutting edge products which help to connect people to fish. His company has grown substantially over the past few years, and is known as one of the more reputable tackle entities in the sport fishing community. In 2014 Kevin passed away after a short battle with colon cancer. His wife Rachel decided to keep Offshore Innovations going with the intention of keeping Kevin's legacy alive and continuing to offer some of the best offshore fishing tackle in the industry.
