About Your Guide

Growing up in a fishing family under his grandfather Captain Joe Sr., his father, Captain Joe Jr., and Captain John himself used to spend the summers fishing the Long Island sound, the northeast canyons, and winters out of Pompano Beach, Fl and the Bahamas. Captain John started fishing professionally at age fourteen and had his first charter boat at eighteen. He owned and operated the 43' charter boat "Bolo" out of Hillsboro Inlet by twenty. After six years and over 1000 charters, he took a sabbatical to follow the tournament circuit to fish exotic spots all over the world. Now, Captain John is back, and he's here to offer you and your friends a fantastic sportfishing experience. The entire crew of the Ringmaster strives for excellence as your ultimate sportfishing charter.

Captain John and Chris did a fantastic job keeping the kids engaged in fishing fun the whole time! And Rusty was such a treat! The day was gorgeous.
