Growing up on a very large lake, I learned at the age of 5 that the water was my second home. Now, 45 years later, and after spending countless hours on several different bodies of water, I have targeted almost every Saltwater Fish on the East Coast.

Fished February 21, 2017. I wasn’t able to catch anything that was good to eat but captain Joe did everything he could to get me a fish in the boat. He was very professional and the boat was awesome. I would definitely book another trip with him in the future. I’d probably do the all day trip next time.

Had a fun time for sure Tried my best to get you something for the table The first two fished we never landed would have been great table fare for sure. I always recommend a full day. Looking forward to the next tome !

My wife and I and our 2 boys(14 &10;) scheduled an offshore charter with Capt. Joe for July 2nd. We showed up at the marina, not sure what to expect, as we have been on many charters and have had mixed results and mixed experiences. Both Capt. Joe and William were very informative and engaging. They made sure that all of us had a great time. On that day, we were 1 of 2 boats that had any real success. Capt. Joe made sure we were comfortable all day and put us on the fish. This was truly our best charter experience.

Sorry Mick
I spend near 300 days on the water each year on the water and there are times were this happens. I should have used better judgement and cancelled the trip.I really though I could but it together for you. Sorry I failed. I did however add a addition quest that day at no charge and refunded you back 100.00 The weather that day was not it saided was predicted.
