Get onto the water with Slobby Joe Charters and ready yourself for some of the most exciting inshore action you could ask for. Explore Tampa Bay’s endless flats and backwaters to target a who’s who of inshore favorites!
With Captain “Slobby” Joe, you’ll get way more than just great fishing. He aims to give everyone he guides the full Tampa experience, learning about the local waters, and getting truly immersed in this unique corner of America.
Captain Joe’s 23’ Ranger bay boat is a purpose-built shallow-water explorer, designed to make her way deftly through the murky sandbanks and backwaters which Tampa Bay is best known for.
Combine her shallow draft with her silent trolling motor, and you have yourself the ultimate weapon in your hunt for the big Bull Reds and super-sized Snook which lurk in wait for some tasty bait or realistic lure to be cast their way.
Head out into the bay, and the vessel still holds her own, with high-tech electronics able to pinpoint the most active spots in the area. Troll for Spanish Mackerel, or wrestle some giant Jack’s onto the boat for pure angling pleasure.
Whatever you target, you can do so with confidence, knowing you are using nothing but the best fishing tackle to tackle nothing but the best fish!
The real X-factor with Slobby Joe Charters is the captain himself. Despite his name, Captain Joe is anything but a slob, jumping to every challenge with an energy that can only ever come from true passion from the sport.
He is a man determined to make a name for himself and to build his reputation as one of the most dedicated and welcoming captains operating in this highly-competitive fishing paradise. So climb aboard and see for yourself why his clients keep coming back time after time!
