Paul Johnson

Member since August 2015 Islamorada, United States
Background
Capt. Paul grew up fishing in the area, spending most of his childhood on the reef fishing for Snapper. All he wants to do is share his passion for fishing with other people, which is why he's now been in the charter business for 36 years. Many happy customers and successful trips later, he still can't get enough of watching his customers reeling in a huge Mahi or Marlin.
