Great time fishing with Joel, very informative and fun to hang out with. Recommend using him for a fun-filled day of catching a variety of fish and spend a day in the Gulf. Joel makes the trip enjoyable and he helps answer any questions throughout the trip.I plan on fishing again with him when I return to Florida to visit... More

Captain Joel was a great guide! He took our group of five out the day after Thanksgiving. We caught several kinds of fish including two groupers while trolling then cleaned and bagged all our fish back at his dock. Highly recommended

Joel took 4 of us out grouper fishing for the day. First spot we caught several grouper, snapper, and grunt fish. My older son then snagged a sting ray! We took a couple photos, then Joel cut it loose... they are tricky suckers. Our big catch of the day was approximately a 250# nurse shark. Awesome! We had a full... More

Captain Joel fought mother nature all day. Winds and current we not our friends but we still managed to get over 25 fish in 4 hours. Spending the day with my Dad and brother on Father's Day along with Captain Joel was priceless. AAA+++++

My friend and I fished with Capt. Joel on a Wednesday morning. It was a 4 hour trip into the Gulf of Mexico. The weather and sea conditions were absolutely perfect, and no doubt, this added to our enjoyment and success on the water. Capt. Joel took us to one location about 15-20 miles off-shore and we never left it... More

Captain Joel works hard to provide his passengers with a complete day or half-day fishing. He has knowledge of the waters in our area. You will be treated well and most likely catch what you are after.
