The boat that you will be fishing from is a center console vessel just under 18 feet in length, and can accommodate 1 to 2 anglers, plus the Captain. 4, 6 and 8 hour trips are available for your and your party’s consideration.

Spinning rods, reels and lures (as well as both live and artificial bait) are all included in the price. Fly fishing tackle is also available, complete with a selection of flies. Fishing licenses for all anglers on board are provided by the captain. There’s an ice box on board for the day’s catch, and cleaning and filleting the fish after the trip is done at no additional cost.

This fishing trip was the “bucket list” of my quest to catch a Florida redfish. Captain Paul Hobby was extremely efficient and pleasent as he guided me on the various techniques of the art of landing a redfish! His equiptment and boat were top notch and very clean. This is the third time that I have fished with Paul and we will continue to use his guiding/fishing service while on future Florida trips.

Hello Vicky,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our fishing day together. It was an enjoyable day and the time went by very quickly as it usually does when you’re having fun and the weather is cooperating. I have included a few pictures that I took with my camera while you were fishing and catching.
Take care and thank you again for fishing with me.
Paul
