Get to Know

Judah Paul Sports Fishing is not only a life-long dream come true for
Captain Steve, it’s also a homage to his son, Judah Paul. Sadly, it took
losing Judah Paul to a sudden death for Captain Steve and his family
to realize life is too precious to live with what-if’s. They honor Judah
Paul by not only naming the company and the boat after him, but also
by living each day to the fullest, chasing their dreams, and fishing
every chance they get.

About the Captain

Captain Steve Helton has been fishing for over 40 years. Twenty of
those years he’s spent piloting ocean-going boats. He has a
reputation for knowing where the fish are. In fact, he holds Humboldt
Bay’s unofficial record for most sport species caught in one day.
Captain Steve is a U.S. Coast Guard Master, holds a Merchant Marine
Captain’s license, and is CPR and first aid certified. He fishes the
beautiful west coast from Fort Bragg, California to Newport Beach,
Oregon. Encouraging and helpful, his enthusiasm for fishing and his
stretch of ocean is contagious.

About the gear

We don’t skimp on gear. It’s all high quality and easy to use. We carry
both Daiwa Saltist 2-speed and single speed reels on Penn and
Okuma rods. We use Cannon electric downriggers with responsive
up/down push buttons. We keep a full range of tackle on hand to
ensure we’re ready for any fishing circumstance. The Judah Paul even
has a well for live bait fishing. We are good to go!
