Took a buddy for a 1/2 day and what fun. Joey knows where to find the fish, how to speak their language and get them on your hook. Plus he is funny and a real fun character to spend time with.

Went out on the boat with Joey this morning and it was one of the best fishing experiences I've ever had! Definitely worth the trip down from Ohio for! He's incredibly knowledgeable and knows exactly where to go to catch some monsters!!

Our first time out with Joey and we had a blast. Caught Redfish, Jack and Snook. One Snook was over 40"! Joey is a great guide and extremely helpful. He did an awesome job with our 10 year old.
