    This is a must if you have kids

    I would recommend anyone with kids to go out with Capt. Joe. We had an amazing time and he put us on the fish. We can’t wait to come back next year so we can fish with Capt. Joe again.

    Cloudy Catch

    Captain Joe didn’t give up when we were not catching anything. He kept moving to a new location until finally the fish started hitting! My boys were thrilled when they caught a puffer fish, red snapper, ruby lip and a remora. Joe was patient and calm which is great for kids! It was a cloudy, cool day, but a great day for fishing! The 2 hours went really fast!!! Next time we may do a longer trip! Thanks Joe!

    Great for small kids!

    Captain Joe was very helpful and put on us on fish for kids to catch. Our kids are 4 & 7 years old and 2 hour trip was perfect. Also, we had a dolphlin visit within a few yards of boat. Joe did everything and let us relax while kids & dad were fishing.

    Great experience!

    Whenever you go out fishing you never know how it’s gonna go. Lucky for us capt.Joe put us on the fish right away. My 8 year old had a 15 lb redfish on the line on the first cast and it only got better from there. Capt.Joe was very nice and was really good with helping the kids learn how to reel in and net big fish, he even got them to hold them which I was shocked by. We ended up catching 8 really good sized fish. The largest being about 40+ lbs which was almost as big as the boy reeling it in! We all had a great vacation in Destin but this will be the memory that lasts for sure. I would definitely recommend this trip!
