Captain Paul has been fishing professionally for over 40 years as a licensed captain. He went on a fishing charter one day and realized that he wanted to do this for a living. Catching big fish is the premium pleasure and he enjoys sharing this experience with all customers on his boat. He particularly likes having kids on trips, as they are fun to teach, and he hopes to get them hooked on fishing. ‘’We don’t fish we catch!” is his motto, and he promises to do his best to live by it on your trip.
