Joe Wilson

Member since September 2015 Rockport, United States
Background
Captain Joe Wilson has been fishing since he learned how to walk. One day his dad put a rod and reel in his hand, and the rest is history! He’s been running charters out of Corpus Christi since 2009 and what he loves most about his job is meeting new people, teaching beginners how to fish, and putting smiles on customers’ faces. Before he began running charters, Capt. Joe was a competitive Bass circuit tournament angler. He’s also a military veteran and enjoys taking other former and current service members out on the water for a fun day of fishing. Next time you’re in the Port Aransas–Corpus Christi area, come fishing with Lil Joe’s Guide Service and get ready for the ultimate saltwater adventure!
