Captain Josh took what could have been an average day and made it one of our best. The wind was up but Josh found us the fish. Josh was was very easy to get along with and good with his instructions.
This was our second trip With Captain Josh and he did not fail to put us on the fish. We fished the back waters for what ever was biting, we moved from spot to spot to stay on a catch. Josh is easy to talk to and loves to give you helping tips. I would recommend Josh for a day on the water. …
Even though it was a windy day with less than favorable conditions we had a great time back country fishing. Caught 4 different species and learned a few things about the echo system. Captain Josh is very knowledgeable! I will for sure be calling Captain Josh again!! Thanks again for the great day!! …
Josh is one of the best captains I have ever fished with in 25 years. He knows the water and the area better than anyone and we had a blast. The wind was blowing between 25-35 mph and Josh still found some awesome fish for us! Can’t wait to get back on the water soon! …
Josh was an experienced skillful captain and knew where the fish were! He was most helpful and Was also a good steward of the environment
I wanted a fun, action packed fishing trip for my 18 year old daughter and I. Captain Josh delivered and then some. Caught a ton of fish the whole trip and missed a ton more (Sorry Capt :-) Our snappers were expertly cleaned and packaged. An hour or so later we had our fish prepared Key Largo style at Sharkey’s thanks to the Captain’s recommendation. Top 5 fish dish we ever ate. Don’t hesitate to fish with Josh, outstanding experience from start to finish. …
We had a fantastic day, fish were tough to come by due to a cold front, but Captain Josh found us some. We had bottle nose dolphins literally right next to the boat and numerous shark species right next to the boat. Captain Josh has a wealth of knowledge and about the ecosystem of Florida Bay and Everglades national park. My 15 year old son and I had a great day being out on the water with Captain Josh and I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a great day on the water, not only fishing but the total experience especially if you’ve never been flats fishing in south Florida. Thanks again Captain Josh and we will definitely be contacting you next time were in South FL!! …
