Captain Abraham Rovansek

Captain Abe started fishing while he was still in college (and he is still a full-time student), and brings the fishing know-how to our operation. For a young man Abe has a long history of fishing in Alaska. Abe has been involved in seining, drift netting and set netting for salmon and jigging for Pacific Cod, Rockfish, and Lingcod, and has fished Kodiak, Bristol Bay, and Cook Inlet.


At Kodiak Rush, as Captain, Abe leads our fishing efforts, does the majority of navigation and driving of the Lila Aurora, especially when conditions are difficult, oversees maintenance of our equipment, and upkeep of our boat, skiffs, and nets, as well as communicating with our customers. When he is not fishing, Abe is enjoys baking bread, talking airplanes as he is a licensed pilot, studying ancient cultures, and traveling the world.
