Captain
Matt Paylor

Member since November 2018 Beaufort, United States
Background
I come from a family of commercial fishermen. Born and raised on the water, naturally, I became addicted to the saltwater environment. I love the challenge of fishing. It is very rewarding when a game plan for targeting certain species of fish is perfectly executed.
Techniques
I have spent countless times fishing with gill nets, cast nets, gigs, and rods. My preferred method is rod and reel. This method can be enjoyed while by myself or with a group of friends.

Early Birds Get the Worm!

March 29, 2019

The a.m. trout bite has been picking up with the spring weather pattern in effect. False Albacore tuna briefly showed up a couple weeks ago, then disappeared. Water temps are rising, so good chance of them showing back up… Read Full Report →


Limit of speckled trout and red drum

December 07, 2018

Caught dozens of speckled trout Friday. Quite a few shorts but finally found some keepers. Also a nice slot red and a black drum. Largest spec was just over 21 inches! Read Full Report →
