Paul is very personable and loves meeting people. He can customize a trip to fit your needs all the while giving you an “authentic” fishing experience! You will be fishing out of an state of the art East Cape EVO or East Cape Caimen Skiff. We are one of the only guide services in the area that will run two different sized skiffs to suit the water depth and area of the fish in the back country and flats of Bull’s Bay, Turtle Bay, and the Pine Island Sound. We can also explore such Southwest Florida destinations as Bookelia, Captiva, Cayo Costa, Boca Grande and even trips to the Peace and Myakka Rivers for Tarpon, Bass, Snook and more. We’re up for anything- we might get out of the boat and wade fish, or hop on a paddle board to get back where no one else can reach to find our trophy fish.
Boca Guide Services will supply you with everything needed for your fly fishing experience: Saltwater fishing license, top-of-the-line fly fishing tackle including hand tied flies that are sure to be the latest technique of saltwater fly tying, cooler filled with ice-cold beverages, fuel, and a customer service driven attitude towards guiding. Did we mention, Paul ties all his own flies?
You need only bring a hat, sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, camera, snacks, and sandals, wading shoes may be necessary but can be provided. Be sure to check out our photo gallery of the beautiful fish of Boca Grande! Fish and wildlife photography is Paul’s latest passion.
