I booked two days with Captain Paul on his center console boat, one full day for reef/wreck and one 3/4 for Tarpon in the harbor. He is docked at Garrison Bight Marina. Reef/wreck fishing day was consistent action all day with live bait fishing and a little bit of lure jigging, we boated grouper, snapper, amberjack, kingfish, and barracuda. Went back to hotel a little bit sore from all the action (the way it is supposed to be!), with a very nice snapper fillet for dinner, and 4 snapper fillets for back home, great day overall!
Second day was 3/4 day for Tarpon in the harbor and channels. We hooked and fought two Tarpon, one at 75 lbs and one at 100 lbs, and this was after peak Tarpon season, so I was very pleased overall with the 3/4 day as well.
Captain Paul was an absolute blast to have as a Captain, a fun guy, very personable, and had great knowledge of the areas he was fishing in as well as the fishing techniques. He also took the time to explain the more advanced concepts of the fishing methods he was using to a fishing addict like myself, and his easygoing manner made for some very fun times on the boat.
Definitely bring sunscreen, protective sun clothing, water, and camera. Also be sure to bring food for fuel to fight the fish! The boat is fairly new and a smooth ride. I am planning on using Captain Paul from here on out at Key West, every time!
