About the Captain

Paul Roydhouse
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
Member since March 2015
I am a 3rd generation fisherman in Fort Lauderdale. I started in 1967 as a mate on one of the local drift boats. I fished with my dad who also worked the boat and taught me how to fish. When I was old enough, I began working as a mate on the sportfishing boats. As years past, I got my captain's license. I took a private sportfishing captain's job for about 8 years where the owner of the boat and I fished the Bahamas Billfish Championship tournaments, all through the Bahamas, Caribbean and south Florida. In 1994, I took out a $30,000 loan to buy a charter boat and start my own business, me and my sons. A couple years later, we bought a drift boat, the Catch My Drift and we've been drift fishing off the coast of Fort Lauderdale every day since. The Catch My Drift is Fort Lauderdale's largest and only air-conditioned drift boat. We run 3 trips every day and nobody fishes more than we do. There are several captains of the boat... me, my son Rod and my other son Andy, Stu and Billy.

This trip was perfect for our young family. The price was right for an afternoon boat ride and fishin experience. Th directions and posting to get us to the dock was great and parking was within 50 feet of the checkin spot. The boat and equipment were very nice. The crew was friendly and accommodating to us and our young kids to set us up, train and help with our beginner fishing expertise. The boat ride in at sunset was really pretty and whole family had a great time! Thanks Catch My Drift!!

I went fishing on the catch my drift last week. I did a night fishing trip. It was a blast! The crew were spectacular.  Very knowledgeable and good with all ages!  The bathrooms were clean and there was a lot of room to move around on the boat.  I caught 6 yellowtail snappers myself and when we got back the crew fillet them for me.  I had a great time and would recommend this trip and company to anyone!
