Joseph will have all the gear you need ready and waiting on board when you arrive. The boat can accommodate up to six passengers and children are welcome.

My father and grandfather were avid outdoorsmen who shared their love for the outdoors with their children. Living close to both fresh and salt water has made me a more experienced Captain. I now have my own outdoor fishing show locally and on ABC. Check us out on YouTube: Father and Son Outdoors TV.
