Captain Joe is the owner and operator of Game On, a 32’ Kevlacat powered by twin 300HP Suzuki engines, with a maximum passenger capacity of 10 anglers per trip. The boat comes outfitted with a variety of navigational electronics including GPS, radar, Fishfinder and 3 radios (27mhz, HF and VHF). On-board facilities include an enclosed toilet as well as a kitchen equipped with stove and a running water in the sink.

Captain Joe and his deckhand specialize in a variety of fishing techniques, including bottom fishing, light tackle and deep sea fishing, especially for the likes of Bluefin Tuna. The crew utilizes a variety of quality fishing gear, mainly Shimano and Okuma rods, reels and gimbals, along with a few Daiwa electric reels, capable of reaching depths of up to 700 meters. Of course, if you’ve got a favorite fishing rod, you’re welcome to bring your own gear along.
