One of the best guides around. Truly great guy, and he will put you on the fish!

Had the best day with Joe. Took me out to a beautiful area to chase red drum. Local guy that can catch anything on top water plugs or crazy charlie flies. Has all the knowledge, technique and gear you could ever need. Can’t wait to come back for another round.
