Captain
Paul Manoogian

Member since February 2020 Homestead, United States
Background
My grandfather moved to Florida from Washington D.C. in the 1960s and fished the Keys and the Everglades for decades. When I was younger he would take me out of school to go fishing with him. I cherished every moment I got to spend with him. In 2014 he passed away and I was determined to keep the fishing legacy in the family. I worked hard to get my captain's license and spent as much time on the water as I could. Every time I travel to the Everglades I remember my grandfather and the memories we shared together. To me, fishing is more than just recreation or sport, it's a chance to reconnect with my dad and grandpa, revisiting memories of wonderful times spent together outdoors. My goal for everyone I fish with is that they would come away from the experience with more than just a big fish or nice story and cool pictures. My desire is that they make life-lasting memories with their families in one of the greatest places on earth; the Everglades.
Techniques
Some of the fishing techniques I use on a regular basis are, live baiting, jigging, plugging, trolling, poling, drifting, and anchoring. Half of my trips are spinning rod trips while the other half are with the fly rod.
