HammerTime Saltwater Adventures welcomes you aboard! Join Captain Paul, who’s been fishing for 45 years, 25 of which he’s been guiding other people. He started at the Great Lakes, where he grew up, and moved to Florida for its diversity and amazing year-round opportunities. Being a former educator, Capt. Paul loves to teach people new tactics and methods while creating lifelong memories along the way.

It all starts on a 24’ Key West boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This bay boat is perfect for the local waters and offers a safe and reliable ride no matter where you go. She’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and reaches the maximum speed of 35 knots. The boat features navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a wireless trolling engine. Boat safety, organization, and a tidy deck are your captain’s priority.

It’s hard to point a finger on just one specialty of Capt. Pau. You could say he specializes in variety, as he does his best to stay knowledgeable with various species and techniques. He works hard to put you on fish and you can catch all kinds of species on this trip. Some of them are Redfish, Snook, Barracuda, Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish, and many more.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. The captain lets you keep the catch and he’ll also clean it free of charge. You only need to pack your snacks, drinks, and sun protection.

HammerTime Saltwater Adventures ensures a great time on the water for the whole family or group of friends. You just need to pick a date, confirm it, and show up on time.

Member since December 2020
I grew up in PA near the Great Lakes. I have had a passion for fishing since my childhood when my dad used to take my brothers and me. I was an educator for 25 years and promoted fishing through clubs at the school where I taught, educating others on fishing comes naturally to me. Tournament fished for Muskies and Walleye up north and also targeted other species including Salmon, Steelhead, Perch, Bass, Pike, Trout, and more. Being involved with the fishing industry from my early twenties, I have made many connections through my own lure manufacturing business of 15 years. My passion for fishing ultimately brought me here to Englewood, FL where I reside today and have been guiding since 2015. The saltwater diversity intrigues me to the point of never getting enough! The mystery of never knowing what you might catch drives me every day and the client memories that come along with each and every catch are priceless.
