We went out twice this vacation with Captain Joey and Hank and had a fantastic time with both adventures!! Joey knows where to go to find the fish and makes sure you have plenty of action. We had a blast and were wore out from reeling in so many big fish. We can't wait to do it all again in... More

On a Labor Day weekend when there were way too many boats out, Joey took us to find big fish and lots of them. Caught 35-40 Snook, 4 or 5 in the slot. Most boats we saw had no action going on, but it was pretty much non-stop for our half day charter. Joey had a good feel for where... More

Just returned from an INCREDIBLE afternoon charter. Husband and son are die-hard fishermen. Daughter and I go for fun. EVERYONE was very happy...especially my daughter who outfished all of us. Beautiful sights....coastline homes, manatees, dolphins, bald eagle, plenty of herons and other shore birds. Caught snook (biggest 39", and 3 smaller), black nosed reef shark, spotted sea trout, lady fish,... More

Captain Joey and his dog Hank are fabulous! Enjoyed a morning of fishing - caught blue fish, lady's fish, puffer fish, flounder, and sea trout. Back at the pier he cleaned our fish. Highlight was seeing several bald eagles!! One swam right over us with a fish to feed his family. Look forward to fishing with him next time we... More

Captain Joey is the original Captain Joe's son. He has been fishing these waters his entire life, and is an experienced and hard working guide. His First Mate is Hank, a large friendly yellow Lab, who helps out when needed. Joey put us on a lot of fish and we had a great time, especially my ten year old grandson.... More

The guide Joey is very knowledgeable of the area. The boat and gear are in good shape. We limited very quickly on grouper, and then we were catching red snapper. This week was warming after a storm and we had some sun, high of 68F. Joey's dog Hank is friendly, and didn't hear a peep through the afternoon. I could... More

When you spend a lot of money and also time on a boat, you want to be with a guide who makes it fun and comfortable. Joey is great with young children and families and is also incredibly knowledgeable and adept with serious fishermen. We have fished for tarpon, snook, redfish, sea trout, grouper, sharks and more with Joey over... More

We've fished with Capt. Joey many times and every time he's put us on fish and shown us a great day! Some of the biggest snook we've ever caught. Plus a great guy to spend athe day with!

I've fished with Captain Joe for nearly a decade and taking many friends and family on his charters. We never fail to have a great time and in over a 100 plus charters we've caught an unbelievable amount and variety of fish. From large tarpon and shark, bull redfish, snook to kid friendly charters of lady fish, mackerel and sea... More
