Paul is known for his congenial personality, and the cheerful attention he gives each customer. "Fishing is supposed to be fun, and I make sure we take care of that part first, every day," says Paul.

A native Mississippi — born in Ocean Springs — Paul grew up fishing offshore, and in southern estuaries at a young age. His earliest memory is a family trip made to Dauphin Island where he caught his first fish and says it was an absolute joy.

He began tournament fishing at 18, mostly offshore, and did well, but never lost a love for near shore fishing, and inshore salt marshes. He says "the biggest gratification in fishing (aside form the natural beauty of it all), is the simple fact that we get to bring home dinner, we eat what we catch."

Paul says his dad, a costal environmental engineer, is the one he credits with giving him a great love for the great outdoors. "He took me with him on dive trips at a very young age, where we would check on the coastal reef program across Mississippi, I guess it's always been with me. I'm glad it has stayed with me."

Other than fishing, Paul is an avid snorkeler and diver, and he enjoys nature in all forms — whether that's hiking in the Himalaya, snorkeling off the coast of Bali, or guiding fishing trips at the foot of the Mississippi River Delta — Captain Paul remains in awe, with gratitude for the world around us.

Venice, Louisiana offers some of the finest inshore fishing in the world.

Capt. Paul targets Redfish, triple tail, trout, and snapper. This is a year round fishery. Conditions are almost always ideal. Says Paul, "offshore may be blowing, and boats can't go out, but we can take csutomers inshore more than ninety percent of the time." Fall months are particulary great, winter months can be rewarding, and everyone knows about the productive fishery down here in spring and summer.

When asked why you should choose a trip with Captain Paul, he says: "I promise 100% to provide you with a can do attitude, and cheerful outlook on each and every day. We're going out to catch fish, but first we're going out to make friends and have fun … if I take care of that first part, we'll make the second one happen because good mates make for good fish trips, and that helps us put them in the boat."
