In short fishing with Capt. Paul was not fishing at all. It was Catching! Hooking, fighting, and landing pure chrome fighting power. Paul had gear down on the track before the sun was up and we hit our first double header of the day (we had three!), as the sun broke over the tree tops. Majestic! The fun didn’t stop until we limited out on chrome Chinook in 2.5 hours. Fighting these mighty fish side by side with my dad, who taught me to fish as soon as I could hold a rod, is something I’ll cherish forever. To hear my dad say “well that’s off the bucket list” with the glee of a boy was priceless. All the Chinook we landed were between 20-30 pounds, and after Paul cleaned them for us and brought us to the packers, we ended up with 52 pounds of beautiful red fillets. That’s about 1k$ worth of fish! We decided that was enough for us even though the offer to continue to fish for coho or halibut was on offer. Paul was a great guide and has 20 years of fishing experience on the west coast. He was fun, kind, knowledgeable, and entertaining. A good teacher and a fast friend. Would I recommend Paul and Castaway Charters? Hell Yes!!! And you can bet I’ll be back.
