Everglades National Park, 40001 Main Park Rd, Key Largo, Florida 33037
These trips leave the dock at sunrise and return around 11:00 a.m. Half-Days are popular but Captain Paul has discovered that most clients would prefer a full day experience. Getting to Flamingo can be a bit of a drive and with all the effort it takes to get there, it's nice to spend a full day taking in all the Everglades has to offer. For this reason, Captain Paul encourages his clients to book 8-hour trips for the best experience and most fishing time. However, if you are pressed for a time a Half-Day usually offers enough time to get on a good bite.

My name is Paul Manoogian I was born in 1993 in Miami Florida the year after Hurricane Andrew. My Grandfather started fishing Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, and Marco Island for Snook back in the 50's and there are logs in his journals of me catching fish on the boat in 1997. So I've been fishing since I was 4 years old. In 2006 my dad passed away and left me with a deep passion for the outdoors. In 2014 my grandpa passed away and that's when I decided to buy his skiff instead of letting it get sold. After buying the boat I started fishing Flamingo and Biscayne Bay often. After a few trips a mentor from my church who's father was involved in the miami met tournaments and who grew up fishing in the keys mentioned that I was very good and that I should pursue getting my Captains License. I worked hard for 4 years averaging 150 days a year on the water with no clients just to get my hours and learn the fishery. In 2018 I got my Captains license and started Legacy charters fishing. I used the word legacy because I wanted to share the legacy of fishing passed down to me from my dad and grandpa. I've been guiding professionally since 2018 and hope to win some big tournaments some day but my real passion is conservation and spending time in nature. Trolling for snook was my grandpas specialty so I have a lot of background with that style of fishing. I also picked up fly fishing and currently am focused on fishing the No Motor Zones in Everglades National Park out of my canoe. These are some of the things I do that might be different than some other guides in the area.
