Captain Paul HobbyLets go fishing!!!

KEEP CALM AND FISH!! Go on a fishing charter fishing the calm shallow waters surrounding Fort Myers and Sanibel Island area.
I am Capt Paul Hobby, a full time fishing guide in the Sanibel Island and Fort Myers, Florida area. I SPECIALIZE in fly fishing inshore and near shore waters as well as using spinning/light tackle (conventional) fishing tackle. My typical Sanibel Island fishing charter is 1 to 3 anglers fishing a 1/2, 3/4 or full day. All levels of fishing experience can be accommodated. This can range from a novice fisherman to someone experienced in sight casting to fish, or just wanting to gain some experience.
This is a “have fun” no pressure type of fishing. Most serious anglers put enough pressure on themselves and do not need any added pressure from their guide. If you bring me a “fat free” cupcake, I will never mention any blown cast or missed opportunities.

fishing charter We typically fish in water depths ranging from 7 inches to 8 feet. Since we are not fishing “offshore” , but rather inshore or near shore waters, the wind is rarely a factor especially considering the numerous mangrove islands that break up wind and waves. Therefore, there is never a worry about someone getting seasick or becoming uncomfortable.
Fishing Charter

Because of the extremely shallow waters we frequently fish on, I use a boat that is specially designed for a shallow draft and it has a zero “hull slap” type of design. That means if we are sight casting to fish, we can easily get into casting range and the fish never know we are there. That is a huge advantage over the typical boat because fish have become more wary with all the added fishing pressure over the recent years.

I have over 20 years of being a Fort Myers fishing charter guide and I am a 4th generation Floridian and native of Fort Myers.
