Capt. Paul Kim grew up in Colorado and started fly fishing at an early age. He moved to Western Washington 22 years ago and fell in love with the saltwater and the opportunities that the beautiful PNW has to offer. His first trip to Neah Bay was all that it took for him to have a passion to want to pursue fin fish, crab and shellfish. In 2020 he was appointed by WDFW director Suswind as a crab and spot prawn advisor. He holds a 25 ton master endorsement from the USCG and is a member of the CAPS (Charter Boat Association of Puget Sound). Capt. Paul runs a fishing charter based out of Shilshole Marina in the Ballard neighborhood. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, travel, photography, skiing, and spending time with his wife and two sons.
