"Capt. Paul" is a transplanted inshore and offshore fisherman from New Jersey. He relocated to Port St Lucie five years ago after having vacationed in that area for over 25 years. His northern pursuit of sea bass, fluke, bluefish, and striped bass on the inshore scene to yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, mako and thresher sharks in the northern canyons was replaced by targeting the fantastic surf fishing opportunities that are available along the Treasure Coast. Permit, pompano, whiting, croaker, snook, tarpon, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and jack crevalle are just some of the species that he personally targets and guides his surf fishing charters to along this stretch of southeast Florida. A Bass Pro Shop associate, Paul is also a member of the Penn Pro Staff and affiliated with the area’s biggest bait and tackle shop on Hutchinson Island - the Snook Nook in Jensen Beach.
He conducts How-To Seminars at Bass Pro Shops on a regular schedule. Capt. Paul also conducts other off-site seminars for civic groups and fishing clubs from Fort Pierce to West Palm Beach. You can hear Paul's South Florida Surf Fishing Report on Saturday morning on 94.3/WZZR. As far as print and online, you can read his Surf Fishing Reports on a regular basis in all of the TC Palm publications, Stuart News, St. Lucie News, St. Lucie Tribune, Indian River Press, and on TCPalm.com, in the fishing report columns that are headed by the widely known and respected outdoor sports writer, Ed Killer. Paul spends an average of four to five days a week on the beach along the Treasure Coast guiding and personally fishing for the multitude of fish that are available along this great section of the Florida coast. One of the best aspects of surf fishing is that it is the perfect sport for everyone from children to grandparents." Anyone can do it and it’s as much fun watching my grandson and granddaughters reel in a 12-inch whiting as it is watching a charter customer land his first pompano or snook", says Paul.
