 Captain Paul Hobby
Your new favorite fishing guide!

Sanibel Island and Fort Myers fishing charters and guide service covers all types of flats fishing from fly casting to 100 lb. tarpon to silently poling 8-inch deep water for redfish. Fishing the inshore waters of Pine Island Sound and the surrounding area can be extremely rewarding. This area encompasses Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island.  As your guide I, Captain Paul Hobby, have the knowledge and experience necessary as a Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Island fishing guide for over 20 years, to make it happen. I am a full-time fishing guide in the Sanibel Island, Captiva 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 Fort Myers – 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.

If you haven’t fished with me before, please check out my reviews. But if we have fished before, then I would greatly appreciate a review. Reviews can be made on Google+ or Yelp.

If you promise to leave a  review, I’ll try extra hard on our fishing tour. Might even take you to my secret spot.

Fishing Charter

Because of the extremely shallow waters we often fish on, I use a boat that is specially designed for a shallow draft and it has a Redfish

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.
