THE CAPTAIN 

CAPTAIN BIOGRAPHY

CAPTAIN PAUL FISICARO

My name is Capt. Paul Fisicaro and I have been guiding in the Florida Keys for 26 years. I was born and raised in the Bronx New York where my passion for fishing first started at age 4. My father is the one who showed me what fishing was all about and that's all it took. Whether it was fishing for stripers and bluefish off the jetties of the L.I. Sound or fishing off a 14 ft. skiff in the bay for flounder or fluke, I couldn't be happier. Now I'm in the Florida Keys and doing what I love most. When I came to live in the Keys, I found that catching bonefish, tarpon and permit to be one of the most thrilling times I had ever experienced. Once I had experienced that thrill, I decided to do it for a living and to show other anglers one of the most enjoyable aspects of fishing. The expression I see on their faces, makes it all worth while.

Whether you are a novice or seasoned angler, it is always wonderful to see the excitement that people show. The expressions on your faces when you hook up to a bonefish that screams off 200 yards of line in one run or a gill rattling jump by a 100 lb. tarpon is priceless.

I specialize in fly fishing and light tackle and offer the best quality fishing tackle available. I have been fly fishing since I was 11 years old and tie my own flies that are proven patterns that catch fish.
