Joe Cassaro

Member since July 2016 Marco Island, United States
Background
I have been fishing in Florida backwaters and offshore for 30 years, and still love every minute being out introducing this incredible water Wonderland to my guests. I have a passion for going out and hunting down Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout and Sharks. Whether you're looking to target the trophy fish of a lifetime or a family trip to go out and have fun catching fish, looking at dolphins and picking shells off the remote beaches of the ten thousand islands, I can bring you out for a great memorable trip. Thank you for considering me as your guide.
Techniques
I use a wide variety of techniques that i have perfected through 30 years of practice and studying fish behavior. My favorite style of fishing on charters is live bait. whether it be netting smaller fish for bait or getting shrimp from the marina live bait is the easiest way for my guests to be successful in bringing fish to the boat. For my own personal pleasure i prefer to Fly Fishing or fish using top water plugs and other artificial baits. whether you prefer live bait, artificials or Fly Fishing just let me know and i will be able to set you up for success. Thank you for considering me in being your guide.
