This very experienced Captain is a 3rd generation fishing captain in his family. Captain Joel is on the water 300 days per year and he loves every minute of it. He is native to Florida and has traveled the world over for fish. He used to be a child psychologist for 20 years and had focused on childhood grief issues and grief counselling. Our captain is also a co-creator of two published kids books. Captain Joel loves acquainting his guests with the most epic fish which he believes are exactly where he is from - the Gulf of Mexico.
