Fishing is Captain Joel's passion in life. He just loves getting the fish in the cooler and putting smiles on customers' faces. The best thing for Capt. Joel about running charters is seeing the excitement when they hook into something big. He's been fishing his whole life, and has even caught a 600 lb Goliath Grouper. With such success, it's no wonder he was able to turn his passion into a full-time job! He's sure to get the big fish on the boat for you.
