Hang around inshore and explore the productive Northeast Florida waters with Captain Joe! His 4-hour nearshore trips are a great way to get a taste of the exciting fishing Florida has to offer....Read More
On this 4-hour trip, you'll be exploring the first set of reefs off the coast of Jacksonville to chase after Barracuda, Blacktip Shark, Bonito, and King Mackerel. To target these exciting fish, you can do some trolling, bottom fishing, or drift fish using light to heavy tackle with live, artificial, and/or cut bait depending on the day. Just let Captain Joe know what you want to catch and he'll get you set up with the best method!
On the day of your trip, you will hop aboard Captain Joe's 28' LOA Pair Custom that can fit up to 5 anglers. Powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine, she'll get you to the nearshore waters in a jiffy! This vessel comes equipped with a Minnkota iPilot wireless trolling motor, Humminbird fish finding equipment, a live bait well, flybridge, outriggers, and an ice box to store your catches. If you’re looking to release your catch (hopefully after you’ve taken a photo) that’s absolutely fine. Otherwise, you’ll get to keep your catch and Captain Joe will clean it for you!
Captain Joe will provide everything needed for a successful day of fishing including bait, tackle, and fishing licenses. Rods and reels are carefully selected and maintained for peak performance. Rusty hooks and frayed leaders are not acceptable aboard Captain Joe's vessel!
Dedicated to providing you with an exciting and safe fishing experience in the waters of Jacksonville, Captain Joe will do everything in his power to put and keep you on the best bite in the area. Over the years he has spent time working the deck of offshore charters and commercial fishing for local snapper and grouper species. He has spent time working on private sport fishing boats and blue water trolling around Florida. All the while spending as much time as he can learning Jacksonville’s vast backwater fishing for Redfish, Flounder and Trout. His goal is to help your family and friends create memories that will last a lifetime!

This was great day on the water with captain Joe. He was great with my family and putting us on the fish. The second cast I caught a 8’ black tip shark and it was an awesome fight. He put my kids on great fishing spots my 7 year old ...Read More caught snapper, grouper and many other fish. My teenage girls also caught a lot of fish including 1 Bonita. It was a great trip and I would recommend this charter to anyone. Give this captain a chance to show your family or friends a great time on the water.

My son (14) and I were blown away with Joe and his knowledge of fishing. We not only had a great time, but were able to complete the “Grand Slam” of in-shore fishing, catching 5 different species of fish. We caught over 10 fish all together. Captain ...Read More Joe was patient with us as we aren’t super experienced fisherman and at same time he was just “one of the guys” in how easy it was to talk to him. I would highly recommend Captain Joe to novice fisherman all the way up to someone who is very experienced. We will definitely be back. Thanks!
