    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.

    Destin Fishing with Bous

    I took my 8 and 6 yr old son for a 4 hour fishing trip. Capt Joe was relaxed, knowledgeable and put us into saltwater fishing at every stop. We will be back.

    Rodeo Joe's child-friendly fishing charter

    I sent my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter (10) and grandson (8) on a three-hour bay fishing tour. They came back excited (all four had caught redfish)and bragging about the boat and its captain. Although expensive, it was money well spent for a first time adventure for the grandchildren.

    Rodeo Joe's Inshore Charter, Destin Florida

    We reserved a family fishing outing with Rodeo Joe. The excursion was awesome, and everyone had a great time. Rodeo Joe knows where some good spots are to drop anchor and fish, and he is very friendly and easy to talk to. A great experience!

    We had a good time but were disappointed when we showed up and realized it was NOT an offshore charter. We were all excited to experience offshore fishing but didn't get it. I wish I had been made aware of the difference when booking.
