Captain
Joey Shogren

Member since July 2017 Cape Coral, United States
Background
Having grown up in Southwest Florida, I developed a passion for fishing at a young age. As a child, I began fishing in the ponds around my home. At 5 years old, my grandfather introduced me to saltwater fishing. As a teenager, I started fishing in local tournaments and started to develop my knowledge of the surrounding waters. From there my passion grew to become my livelihood.
Techniques
Specializing in back bay, inshore and nearshore fishing, I use light tackle and live bait. My boat allows me to get to areas other boats cannot reach. I have a vast knowledge of the fish and what time of year they are best caught.
