    Captain Joe was very nice and my 7 yr old son had a good time. Perfect setting for 1 on 1 attention. We would recommend to any family looking for a good fishing trip.

    Happy grandson

    Everything went well left on time and got started fishing in a timely manner Captain Joe worked hard at finding us fish. We caught 13 or 14 fish mostly ladyfish and catfish, would have gave it five if we could’ve landed at least one bigger fish but that’s just fishing

    Fishing with Kids

    This is the second year our grandchildren have enjoyed an outing with Captain Joe. They can't wait to go again next year. The two-hour trip is just right for younger children. Captain Joe and his "first mate"in the office were wonderful to work with. Thank you for giving our grandkids a fun memory.

    Bay fishing trip

    We enjoyed our trip. I wish we would have went for the larger fish earlier in the trip but I understand that this was geared towards children and smaller fish with more frequent catches. With all of us being adults and knowing what I know now, I may have booked a different package that was more for adults. Overall the captain was great and the trip was fun.

    OK

    This was a fun trip for the kids. The guide was enjoyable. My younger son (5) was not much into it, but my daughter (12)liked it. We only caught one fish, a redfish, but that seemed to be enough for her.
