    This was our 2nd trip with Rodeo Joe & it did not disappoint! He is so patient & answered ALL of our boys questions. We caught lots of fish and several of them right off the bat! It was such a fun, memorable, & very enjoyable experience that we look forward to doing again on our next visit! Thank you Joe!

    Unique experience for the whole family!

    Our whole family enjoyed everything about this fishing trip. We have 2 sons (16 and 9) and both of them shared that this was their favorite part of the vacation. First, we were very pleased to know that the whole boat was just for us. We went to catch the bait first, and to 2 areas before getting to the bay area where we catch a lot of fish. In total we caught around 15-20 fish, but some of them were not eatable and we released them. At the end, we had a total of 9 Spanish Makels. Captain Joe filleted them and we went to a nearby restaurant were they cooked it for us. The whole day was perfect! Thanks Captain Joe!

    Nailed it!!!

    Captain Joe was awesome! I have been wanting my kids to love fishing as much as I do, but at 12 & 14, let’s just say they haven’t developed the patience for it yet! After they both landed 22+ lb Redfish, they are hooked!! Thank you so much Captain nailed it! Awesome Trip!

    6 yr old grandson

    Took my 6 yr old grandson for his first fishing trip. We had smooth water and of course he caught all 14 fish which was plenty in the short timespan we had available. Capt. Joe was super as he was very attentive to catching something quick so the excitement didn’t fade. I was surprised to see my grandson throwing out the chum with delight and the look on his face with his first fish landed was worth every penny. We then took home some mackerel filets, broiled them, ate it all. Super trip!
