Had them for dinner that night. Delicious! Saw bald eagles, dolphins, many other sea birds. Hooked and landed a 80... More

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
