    Fab Fishing

    Rodeo Joe was fantastic - committed to finding fish and making for great times (and photo ops). We will be back!

    Not good

    The Captain said maybe two sentences that weren't initiated by us. We caught no fish....none, not a bite! I know that is the way it goes sometimes. I was expecting a more fun atmosphere. It was very quiet and boring!!! Money wasted!

    Loved our fishing trip

    Our family had a blast with our fishing trip with Captain Rodeo Joe. Our 4&7 yr old enjoyed helping grab the bait from the live well, reeling in the fish, & posing for pictures. It was our first time to take them fishing and we would love to go again next time we are in Destin. Captain Joe was professional, knowledgeable, and patient with the kiddos. We caught quite a few catfish, blue fish, and even a stingray. We didn't keep anything, but still really enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Not the best experience!

    Didn't seem to care if we caught a fish. Took us to spots knowing the fish wasn't biting. Caught one big fish at time to leave. Our son was bored and so were we. Captain Joe was nice but didn't seem to care.

    Super fun kid fishing trip

    We had a great time on this trip. Captain Joe was very attentive and made sure the kids caught fish. We took our 7 & 5 year old and the 2 hour trip was perfect. The kids loved reeling the fish in. Captain Joe kept the hooks baited and quickly got the fish off the hook so we were fishing and not waiting. I would recommend this fishing trip to folks with young children.

    Kids fishing trip

    Great trip both daughters caught nice redfish. 5 year old grandson caught all the fish he could stand on his own kids reel. Looking forward to going out with rodeo next visit. Great fishing trip. I never thought I would go on a trip and have everyone on the trip leave so happy and not keep any fish. Our fish were tooooo big to keep but the memories will last a life time !!!!' Thanks again captain!!

    Fantastic Fishing!

    My wife and 2 grandchildren and I had a fantastic fishing trip with Captain Joe! He picked us up at the dock and quick trip across the water to our spot and the fishing was on! Everyone in our party caught the biggest fish of their life! I would recommend this charter to anyone.

    Kids and Parents loved it!

    Capt Joe was awesome. Kids (4 year olds) were still talking about it days later. He makes certain that they'll catch something. Mom and Dad thoroughly enjoyed themselves as well.
