From the backwaters of the Ten Thousand Islands of Florida to the Highlands of Scotland, Captain Rob Modys has lived a somewhat nomadic life, traveling and fishing in spots most people only dream about visiting. Bridge to Paradise, Stories of Fishing, Travel and Life, is a compilation of his adventures on the water and on the road, along with the struggles, and sometimes tragedies of everyday life. Modys has been writing short stories, logging fishing trips and keeping a journal for the past 25 years and has finally put a good many of those stories in one place, Bridge to Paradise. 

What I Know About Fishing Southwest Florida

Price Includes Shipping


What I Know About Fishing Southwest Florida is a straight-forward vault of information on how to improve one’s successes at catching the major inshore species from the Ten Thousand Islands through Charlotte Harbor. Derived from decades of fishing these waters as a guide and angling educator, Captain Rob Modys digs deep into the sciences, revealing how weather, tides, moon phases and other external factors influence the movements and feeding patterns of tarpon, snook, redfish, sea trout, permit and others. The respective top artificial lures, natural baits and terminal rigs are covered, obtained from Modys’ time on the water. The science slant alone is well worth the cost of the book. Add in everything else on scoring Southwest Florida’s key inshore species along with a smattering of stories and humor, and this book will prove hard to put down. George Poveromo

Taking a kid fishing is important. It teaches them lifelong lessons about the great outdoors, conservation and sportsmanship. It introduces them to an abundance of wildlife, fascinating adventures, and an enduring community of fishing friends. It solidifies a bond between parent and child that can’t be underestimated. While on a fishing trip there are no outside distractions from the internet, video games, and movies. It’s a time for conversation and bonding between you, the child, and the great outdoors. Captain Rob Modys tells you how.
