Clearwater FL, United States

Captain Paul Hajash owns and operates Reel Florida Adventures, offering daily 4, 6 and 8-hour trips from the Clearwater area. The trips usually begin early in the morning, although afternoon charters can also be organized for those anglers limited by their morning schedules.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 20’ backcountry 201 Proguide flats center console vessel, powered by a single Mercury engine. The boat’s equipped with a trolling motor and features a standard set of navigational and fishing electronics, including GPS, radio and Fishfinder. It can accommodate fishing parties of up to 3 people. Captain Paul utilizes a variety of fishing gear aboard his vessel, from notable brands such as St. Croix,  Sage, Abel, Quantum, G-Loomis, Redbone and Shimano.

Captain Paul specializes in light tackle and fly fishing for Redfish, Snook, Spotted Sea Trout, as well as many other inshore game fish frequenting the waterways from Clearwater to Tarpon Springs. Other than fishing, these trips also often allow you to experience some of Florida’s resident wildlife species, such as Manatees, Porpoise, Sharks, Blue Heron, Ibis, Pelicans, Ospreys and many more. Clearwater is also home to the famous Winter, the bottlenose dolphin, and dolphin sightings are a regular occurrence on many trips.

Captain Paul supplies his guests with all the necessary fishing gear, along with both live bait and lures. All parties aboard need to possess a fishing license, which are covered by the Captain at no additional charge. If you don’t want to keep your catch, you’re welcome to practice catch and release on your trip. Otherwise, Capt. Paul is happy to clean and bag your catch after the trip, as long as the fish can be kept according to state regulations.

About the Captain

I grew up in the Clearwater, Tampa Bay area and have fished the waters from Clearwater north to Tarpon Springs for 45 years. My earliest fishing memories are watching my father castnet for mullet in western Tampa bay near Allen's Creek back in the mid 60's. As a teenager I would wade fish the Dunedin Causeway and Honeymoon Island area just north of Clearwater. Sand Key, just south of Clearwater Beach was also a favorite place of mine to fish in the early 70's. Several of my local guide buddies weren't even born yet.

Thank you Jason!  You and Sheena were a lot of fun to fish with.

The kids ( 9 and 11 year olds) had a great time with Capt. Paul.  We hooked into some sea trout, a few cat fish, Spanish mackerel and even a snook.  The kids caught their share of fish, and Capt. Paul let the kids net the minnows from the live well too!

Thanks Will.  I would like to compliment you on your children.  They were great on the boat and very well behaved!

Captain Paul took my wife and I out on a full day trip and we had a great time.  He took us to more spots than we could count on both hands and put us on the fish over and over, even during a slow fishing time in the area.  He was also knowledgeable about the local area and shared stories during down time.  He quietly offered my wife a bathroom break mid-day and got a dolphin to swim in the boat wake, which made her day.  We both caught fish, brought home enough to cook for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves.
