John has been fishing the waters of Cabo San Lucas since 1984 and was instrumental in expanding the the fleet over the past few years. Due to his passion and drive, the Donovan family became full time owners of RedRum in 2007 with John taking charge of overseeing the operation by spending more and more time in Cabo. While he recently took a step back from day to day operations (so he could spend more time with his grandchildren, fishing,) he is still involved in all aspects of the company, and still around to help create the welcoming family atmosphere that keeps clients coming back to fish with RedRum.
Ryan has been fishing in Cabo since 1999, when he first came down with his father John and some buddies from TCU, where he attended college. Ryan is in charge of marketing, management and business development here at RedRum. Over the years Ryan has figured out a thing or two about fishing in Los Cabos as well. Ryan spends 1 or 2 days a week out on the water with clients whether it be targeting a specific catch, providing instruction, or just to add some “gringo” to the experience. Ryan is also a competitive tournament angler, consistently reaching the podium at all the major Cabo tournaments. Ryan won 1st place a the WON Tuna Jackpot in 2008, catching the 3rd largest winning fish in tournament history with a 244lb Yellowfin. He also has a 3rd place finish in the WON in 2006. Ryan has also won the Tuna division of the Bisbee Offshore (notice a pattern?) While Tuna fishing is a passion here are a few more accomplishments.
-2nd place finish in the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament, 466lb Blue Marlin
-1st Place Wahoo Los Cabos Billfish Tournament
-1st Place Dorado Bisbee East Cape
