Marty Hughes


aka Marty

Basic Info: Kayakjak’s passion for fishing started as a youngster while fishing small freshwater ponds in Southern California and combing the area beaches with a surf rod.  Growing up as a military child often put him in new environments with unique fishing challenges.  He has lived in Nebraska since 1976, graduating from college with a teaching degree used to educate youth over the last 31 years.  He also holds a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration. 

Community Involvement:
Marty is very active in helping the youth of his community with various programs including a before-school program called “Early Birds” and other various activities including a State Championship Archery team, youth football, basketball, and fishing in the local school’s program. As Nebraska’s only kayak fishing guide, Kayakjak works hard to provide his clients with a “unique” fishing and learning experience.  

Fishing Experience:
Marty joined the team with 42 years of angling experience.  He has fished from a kayak for the past 15 years in Southwest Nebraska lakes and ponds.  His outfitter, Kayakjak, is the only full fishing guide service in Nebraska.
