About the Captain

Joshua Roberts
Fort Myers Beach, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
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.

Capt. Josh did a great job putting us on fish. He did everything right. He is very knowledgeable, personable and energetic. We caught about 30 fish and we kept a few to eat. I will use Capt. Josh on my next Florida fishing trip.

The Captain worked hard, had good bait and tackle but the fish didn’t cooperate. That’s fishing. Captain Josh is knowledgeable and VERY good with children. We will fish with him again.
