Kids fishing with Rodeo Joe
about 13 days ago
Joe was excellent with the kids and made sure we had an awesome time. We would book with him again. The southern resorts was not our favorite. The email didn’t mention anything about where to go and they didn’t answer or return our call. They also did not seem to have a location on harbor walk. Joe answered and guided us where to go so all went well.
Kids fishing with Captain Joe

This was the best activity we did the entire week. Captain Joe is a quiet man but a wonderful person and fisherman. He was very calm and did not force our child to look at the fish he had caught that had teeth. If we visit again we will definitely book this again. Thank you Captain Joe and God bless you and your family.

We booked with Capt. Joe because we were looking for a fun charter boat experience for kids and we couldn't be more happy with it! We caught 5 mackerel and 1 speckled trout and maybe 30 large ladyfish. It was a blast! Capt Joe knows where to go to catch fish. It was non-stop action and our 5 year old son had the time of his life. Capt Joe fillet all the fish we caught and had an awesome fish dinner that night. We highly recommend booking with Capt Joe. We can't wait To go again next year!
