30 Years of Experience

Captain Joe has been fishing the waters of coastal North Carolina his entire life, a Crystal Coast native with over 30 years experience he has traveled the Eastern seaboard as a professional waterman and USCG licensed master working in commercial and recreational fishing most of his life. His knowledge for the species he pursues is never quenched. Always striving for the higher mark and increasing his skill set, in search of the wildest and most alive moments that can be sought after. 

Whether it be light tackle or fly, near coastal or in the marsh, from the boat or wadefishing the beach or pristine grass flats, he’ll put you on the fish and an experience of a lifetime. The sizzling heat of your fly reel being peeled to the backing by a Fall False Albacore near Cape Lookout. Perhaps a freight train run of Trophy Redfish in the Pamlico Sound. With two boats to meet your needs, a 23' C-Hawk and a 16' Hewes Flats Skiff, from the backwaters and bays to the Cape Lookout Shoals and near shore reefs. Whatever your choice of quarry, Capt. Joe will hook you up.

 

Captain Joe’s family has been in the tidewater region since the beginning of the Virginia Colony, his great Grandfather was a registered guide on the Pamlico River guiding thrill seeking anglers to their challenge of the world class Red Drum fishery in the early 1900’s . Captain Joe carries on his family heritage and a lifertime of vast local knowledge steeped in his knowledge of coastal folk lore and incorporates that into your customized fishing experience you'll want again and again for years to come.
