Captain
Joe Curtis

Member since August 2020 Jacksonville, United States
Background
Captain Joe will provide you with an exciting and safe fishing experience in the waters of Jacksonville. He'll do everything in his power to put and keep you on the best bite in the area. Captain Joe considers himself a jack of all trades. Over the years, he has spent time working the deck offshore either charter or commercial fishing for local Snapper and Grouper species. He's also worked on private sport fishing boats trolling the blue water around Florida, all the while spending as much time as he could learning Florida's vast backwater fishing for Redfish, Flounder, Trout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. His goal with fishing is to create you and your family and friends memories that will last a lifetime.
Techniques
With his background, Captain Joe feels very comfortable most places on the water. Whether that be in a couple of thousand feet bluewater trolling, anchored up Grouper and Snapper fishing, or in a couple of inches of water chasing Redfish.
