“What a blast!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

What a fantastic day. And it was just a half day. We have been coming to Marco for a long time and it's a bummer that we just found Capt. Joe. He's excellent! Very cool and super knowledgeable. Fortunately the weather was great and we cruised right out and my wife had a big drum fish on the line in minutes. Then I snagged one and we eventually hauled it in. It actually made a thumping sound of a drum. Later we had more luck by getting some snapper, mackerel, grouper and some triple tail that Joe said was great eating fish. It was all great eating. Joe filleted it all right there at the dock. Then We went to Snook Inn and they cooked it up. Best fish we ever had.
So when in Marco, call Capt Joe and go.

“Unreel Fishing Charters-AWESOME”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

July 31,2012: took my family charter fishing with Capt Joe and Unreel Fishing Charters. What can I say....we had a blast. Capt Joe and his first mate Mike were awesome. They put us on fish right away and we caught between 60-80 grouper within the 4 hrs. We kept about 6-8 grouper, enought for about 4-5 full meals! My wife even caught a 4 1/2 foot black tip shark!, that was fun to video. Capt Joe played some sweet tunes to keep everyone pumped up. All and all we have a great day and would recomend to all. Looking forward to going out again with Capt Joe and Unreel Charters.

“Fishing wisdom with a personality”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Captain Joe is the best! He knows the waters and his trade and puts you in the right spot to catch what you a looking for.We went out half day in July and the my son Ryan ,his friend Will and I caught over 60 Grouper. He has a easy going fun personality and plays great tunes. I have been out with him on three separate occasions and he always delivers!!

“Unreel is a great description for this trip”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We were looking for some fishing action while down by Marco Island and did not want to get shut out. A close friend recommended Capt. Joe Cacaro whom he evidently knew as a great Captain for many years. My friend was right. Aside from being nice and helpful (again, we really only cared about catching fish so he could have been an old salty dog for all we cared) Captain Joe really knows his stuff. He takes fishing to a whole other level, bringing a really smart and experienced approach. He should call it catching instead of fishing. Even my wife enjoyed it - and when Mama's happy, everyone's happy (primarily because we can go again). Anyway, to say we were happy with the trip would be putting it mildly. We highly recommend Captain Joe! Thanks Captain!!
