About Capt Petrucco Charter Fishing
I am a fishing charter captain in the Florida Keys. I fish in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Bay, Everglades National Park, John Pennekamp reef, and the Atlantic Ocean in Key Largo, Tavernier, and Islamorada Florida. I am fully licensed and insured. I have been fishing the Florida Keys waters since 2002. I have the knowledge and specialized techniques that consistently put more fish in the box. I have been fishing professionally in many different rivers, lakes and oceans all across North America from Alaska and Northern Canada to the Great Lakes and Atlantic Ocean. I have guided Fly fishermen for trout, salmon and char in Alaska and the tributaries of all of the Great Lakes in Michigan and Canada. I have guided in the Canadian shield lakes in northern Ontario. I have run charter boats in Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, and Lake Michigan. All of this experience comes to play every trip out as conditions are constantly changing. I have a big tank of experience to draw from. Most importantly, fishing is not just a job for me, it is my PASSION!

Captain Joe is the “ Fish Whisperer” . A group of us chartered him this past Monday night for some snapper fishing and totally crushed those poor Mangrove Snappers. Nobody does it better in my opinion then he does. Thanks again Capt Joe.

Tremendous charter, we caught so many King Mackerel and Jack Crevalle. Our arms were so sore that we had a hard time eating brkfst with a fork.

Very highly recommended. This was our third year in a row going out with Captain Joe, and it's always proves to be the highlight of our vacation. We always catch a great variety of fish throughout the day, and it is just a very fun experience all the way around. Captain Joe is very professional, and works extremely hard all day long to assure we are having the best trip. We feel safe and comfortable while we're out with him, and we are confident that we are going to have a good time. My husband fishes all the time and I hardly ever fish, and Captain Joe meets us were we are so that we both have an awesome time. He is a good, patient teacher, and we enjoy gaining fishing skills and learning about the variety of fish out there.

Wow, what a day with Captain Joe. He moved us around to all his hot spots, he's tenacious! Boom, it paid off with a Tarpon field day. We had 3 monsters on at the same time. My 18 year old had the time of his life fighting a 100 pounder. Don't think twice, book him. Thanks again, Cap!

Captain Joe is a straight forward professional who provided us with a great day of fishing. Joe was very helpful and allowed us to catch a bunch of snappers and have a great day overall. What you see is what you get with Captain Joe who we highly recommend!!
