Capt Paul Dampier is a Native that has navigated and fished Florida’s lakes, ponds, and canals most of his life. He has a strong passion for fishing, and he is well-versed in the different kinds of lures and baits that are best to use on different species, particularly for Bass fishing.

Paul grew up fishing with his dad on Lake Okeechobee for specks (crappie to our northern friends) and trophy bass. Upon his dad’s passing, his older brother continued to teach Paul and build upon his love for the outdoors and fishing. Through this, he has gained extensive knowledge of what the fish eat, their seasonal patterns, and how they react to Florida’s ever-changing weather.

Aside from his love for the sport, he looks forward to teaching his guests and sharing his fishing knowledge. For him watching beginners hook into their first fish and the old timers get their PB’s something to look forward to. He enjoys spending time with all levels of fishermen and helping them with tackle selection, fishing techniques, and strategy while making the whole experience fun and memorable.

He will bring you to explore the diverse fisheries on one of these lakes: Lake Okeechobee, Headwaters/Fellsmere Reservoir, Stickmarsh/Farm 13, and Lake Kenansville. You’ll also get a chance to learn various fishing techniques or practice and improve your angling skills as you go Bass fishing. So hit me, and let’s go fishing!
