Been fishing since I can remember, I love the water, boats, fishing. My environmental science background helps me understand fish patterns and the system better. I became a fisherman because there is no better job in the world.

Without a doubt Capt. Joe can put you on the bite. My son and I spent Christmas Eve catching and releasing at least a dozen different species. 3 or 4 passes at the pier and the bait well was full and we were good for the day. Capt. Joe knows his craft and where the fish are. Extremely friendly and easy going. He’s happy when you’re happy. He’ll be seeing us again real soon.

Captain Eskay stayed in touch prior to our charter, and proved to be one of the most knowledgeable guides I’ve ever patronized.  One example:  when we went to get bait, the other guides were castnetting haphazardly around the Fort Desoto pier; Captain Eskay in crept quietly, listening and looking for signs of baitfish, and in two casts he had completely filled the livewell.  As we were leaving, the other guides quickly headed for the spot he had used - the ultimate compliment.  Captain Eskay asked questions about what I would like to catch, and immediately took me all the way across the Skyway bridge to a group of mangrove islands where I caught three snook and a nice speckled trout.  He treated me with great respect and wanted nothing more than my success.  He’s a great captain, and a damned good man.

Thanks Ralph, I had a great time and you were one of the most interesting customers with all of your life accomplishments. If anyone else is reading this Ralph has his name on Mars and is an extremely accomplished gentleman. It was an honor to meet you and get to spend some time with you.  Happy birthday again and hope I hope I get to see you again.
