Capt. Joe is a 2nd generation Florida native.  Born and raised in East Orlando, he learned how to fish these area waters shortly after he learned to walk.  He is hard working and easygoing.  He started guiding professionally with a little, two-man John boat in 1996, and has worked his way up.  Some of our clients still remember that old camouflaged boat.

Capt. Joe's charters are laid back, no pressure and NO yelling.  Guiding expert to novice, he guarantees a great Lagoon experience.

When he's not on a charter, Capt. Joe enjoys spending time with his wife and children.  They can often be found exploring the lagoon or surfing at the beach.

Not only is Capt. Joe an amazing fisherman, he is also an extremely talented artist.  Check out his beautiful wood designs at
