I fished a half day and a full day with Joey. On the half day trip we went yellowtail snapper fishing and my wife came along. Joey was more then helpful chumming and baiting our hooks and helping my wife. He wasn't afraid to keep trying to find a good spot even on a half day trip. We found the spot and caught plenty. On the full day trip it was just me. After getting plenty of live bait, when others were having trouble getting live bait, we ventured out to the Islamorada Hump. We trolled up two tunas but then the fishing died. We went and anchored up on a wreck and caught six king mackerel, 4 blue runners, and a 15 pound mutton snapper. And the best part about fishing with Joey is that he allows you to handle the rods. You hook them, you reel them to the boat, and Joey lands them. He also understands the conservation aspect of fishing in that if you are not going to eat them, throw them back to live another day. Joey is a hard working, easy-going, knowledgeable captain. Joey's favorite saying is "it's all good". I highly recommend anyone looking for a charter boat captain, who will put the time and effort into providing you a great time, to give Joey a call.

Fished on the Fearless w/Cap Joe for the first time last week (2/3/13) and had a blast. We opted for some Yellowtailing and Kite fishing and got some nice dinner and a few large kings. Had a terrific time and a lot of laughs in between getting bitten off several times by sharks. I really enjoyed the walkaround feature of the this boat and it was much closer to my price range for an all day charter. I will definitely be back for another go round with this boat Captain.

Unlike most charters where everything is done for you, and you sit in the boat all day waiting to fight a rod with a fish already hooked, Capt Joe will show you what you need to know to rig up, bait up, and hook those fish yourself! He finds the fish, gets them biting and keeps you on them all day long. Hes a hell of a fisherman, and he captains and mates by himself. He really makes it look easy. If you are like me and like to go on charters that allow you to do more "work" yourself, then this is the charter for you. I cannot say enough about Capt. Joe and his operation. He brought us an extra 25 miles offshore and as it turned out we were the only ones catching that day. He really takes this game seriously, and will be sure to not let you down. He finds a way, instructs well, and has a blast while doing it. This trip will surely put a smile on your face! Check it out!!

Capt. Joe took us about 15 miles offshore. He quickly spotted a school of mahi mahi and we had several poles hooked immediately! As soon as that school left, he had us in another one in no time. We were pulling in fish left and right. It was amazing how quickly Capt. Joe could unhook and bait up our poles even with a wounded finger! Inbetween brushing the deck and keeping things clean! All in all we caught about 20 fish. Unfortunately, the 2-4 foot seas were too much for our 10 year old daughter or we would have caught much more. Capt. Joe was very compassionate to her not feeling well. He was really great with both of our children. We highly recommend Fearless Fishing and can't wait to do another trip with Capt. Joe!

We went out with Joe on Sunday, and it was super windy. The waves were 4-6 ft. But, we caught some serious fish! We caught a bunch of Snapper, a Grouper (had to throw it back because it wasn't season, but it was definitely big enough), almost caught a Dolphin fish, and a huge AJ. When Joe brought us back, he was fileting the fish, and a couple of guides walked by and were impressed with the size of our fish. They said they'd never seen Yellowtail that big before, and the AJ was impressive too. Anyway, wouldn't want to go back out in that kind of weather, but I guarantee if/when we go back to Islamorada, we will be booking Joe!
