About the Captain

I believe 90% of the experience, is within the guide. My job as a guide is to instruct. My passion is to teach. Nothing brings me greater joy than being able to share what I love with others. As a guide, there are a lot of variables, many things we cannot control - the weather, tides, availability of bait. But the few things I can, are the ones that really matter. I love people, dogs, kids, and fish. Not necessarily in that order. Talk to anyone that knows me, and your likely to find that I am very easy to get along with. I grew up in a small town, so naturally I do have the Southern Charm/Hospitality. I DID NOT take Rosetta Stone Southern Edition. Yes. I do talk funny. I grew up in a rural town in Kentucky with 3000 people, on the banks of the Cumberland River. Have been fishing since I could walk. My first experience on an airplane took me (and dropped me) for 4 months in the Alaskan bush, where i worked as a fly fishing guide. I spent 3 1/2 years in the Everglades as a guide.

Great time! Captain Joshua was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and knew where to find the fish. We caught fish from the moment we started to fish. We learned a lot about different fish and caught snapper, blow fish, Spanish Mackeral, Cobea, shark and had a Baracuda on the line. We highly recommended fishing with Captain Joshua. We will certainly charter with him again.

We booked a last second trip on a whim and took 3 children with. The boys had a great time. Hit the first fish before the second line was in. Got chased by dolphins which kids loved and learned a little about fishing and Florida. Josh is good with kids and adults. Very personable and communicates well with all ages. Definitely going to book again. Caught snapper, flounder, Angel fish, puffer and all sorts of others. Hook some Goliath grouper but weren’t able to land them. Give him a full recommendation

My 9 yr old twins and I signed up for the Half Day Trip. Our first spot was a nearby estuary where pompano had been biting. We had frequent snapper catches, but no keepers. After about 30 min, Capt. Josh offered to take us to the nearby wreckage/reef. There, we were catching snappers, Spanish mackerel, and Jack Crevalle. We finally ended at a secluded area farther out. Capt. Josh dropped a couple of the big lines to give us a chance at some cobia and sharks.

This was our first salt-water fishing experience and it was exactly what I was looking for. Capt. Josh was attentive to my boy’s needs, from baiting and rigging their lines to boat speed. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the area wildlife. After the trip, he even took us out for another 30 min to get close with the dolphins which actually was the highlight for one of my boys. 

I highly recommend Fish Southwest FL and am looking forward to fish with Capt. Josh again.
