Fish Memphis Guide Service

You’ll be anything but blue as you sail through Memphis and beyond with Fish Memphis Guide Service. Traverse up to 50 miles of the famed Mississippi River to put some Catfish on the table, while also having the chance to test your strength against some trophy-sized monsters.

Let Captain Danny Paccasassi take you to the most productive spots. His passion for fishing started at the age of 5 when he went on his first trip. A professional firefighter, he works his love around his work, and hopes to show each customer why he fell in love with the sport on these very waters.

Drift along the river aboard a 24’ SeaArk ProCat 240 dual console. This powerful boat was only built in 2016 and still oozes the sense of brand newness. Fitted with plenty of seats for up to 3 guests, you’ll be in comfort throughout as you reach speeds of 40 knots thanks to the 225 HP Suzuki engine.

Built with fishing in mind, she features a fishfinder and GPS to get you right on top of the fish, along with a livewell to keep your bait fresh. Capt. Danny has even installed a wireless trolling motor for you to use in the shallow waters. Creep up close to your prey without making a peep, before luring them in.

Using live and cut bait, you’ll attract the bite of all sizes. Flatheads, Blues, and even Channel Catfish can be found in these productive waters. You’ll drift down the river trying to catch the bite of smaller fish on light tackle, while using heavier tackle will enable you to fish the bottom of the river for monster-sized beauties.

With trips running in the morning, afternoon, and night, there’s no reason not to come aboard. Capt. Danny has you all taken care of, all you need to do is grab your fishing license – online or in a local Bass Pro shop. Bring some snacks and drinks aboard and store it in the cooler, and settle in for an incredible day’s fishing with Fish Memphis Guide Service.

About the Captain

Danny Paccasassi
Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Member since February 2019
Born and raised right here on the Mississippi River the picture shows it all. That’s me at 10 years old and fishing has been my passion since my first trip at the age of 5 on this river and I’m pretty good at it! It’s the reason why I chose a career to become a Memphis firefighter since my work schedule allows 20 days off each month to pursue fishing. You and your guest will have me as your sole captain on your private trip and we’ll practice safety and fun at all times. The trips and times are customizable by you so before you pick an exact day to go please confirm with me first.
