Adventures Around the World.

FishQuest’s mission is provide a “one-stop shop” of quality sportfishing adventures around the globe, developing lifelong relationships with our clients, while respecting the people and places we visit.

Our team combines over 100 years of professional angling travel experience, and a worldwide network of carefully selected lodges, guides and deepwater fleets. FishQuest!'s field staff continually monitors our fishing destinations - and scouts for new ones.

We help you plan your trip and organize your travel arrangements. We tell you what tackle to bring and what to leave home. While we can't control the weather, we'll give you a good idea how to dress for wherever you're headed.

The FishQuest! Team

Gary Schumacher is FishQuest!'s co-founding partner and owner. He was the producer of, which links home-based "virtual adventurers" with live expeditions around the globe via the World Wide Web. He also wrote and directed “Freedom is not Free: The Story of the Korean War”. Gary fishes with any type tackle whenever he can. His office is loaded with photos of times spent fishing with his family and others. He is a member of IGFA and The Billfish Foundation.
Gary says a wise mentor once counseled him, "Develop a deeper appreciation for the creation. Get outdoors…The earth is the Lords’ and everything in it”. My father encouraged being on the water or near it…fish live in some pretty incredible places.

Angling Allies

FishQuest has strategic partnerships with lodges and other fishing operations spread across six continents. Our fishing destination lineup is considered the most far-reaching in the world.

We have arranged travel for numerous television shows, most recently for ESPN’s Bassmaster’s Adventure Classic and Trevor Gowdy’s Quest for the One on Outdoor Life Network. We have consulted the Georgia Aquarium on travel logistics for collecting exotic fish from Asia and South America, and have assisted Marty Arostegui in his quest for more than 200 IGFA world records.

Our Mission Fishin’ project helps provide for educational, medical and other needs to several remote Indian villages in the Amazon.

While our clients include a host of celebrities, professional athletes and corporate leaders, most of them are just regular guys -- and sometime gals -- who just love to fish. Regardless, we try to treat each and every one of our clients as a VIP.
