WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE REST? I can catch Tarpon almost all year long. Besides that, I go out of my way each and every day to make sure we have the best baits that I can possibly catch. I put in the extra time to find them. I do not just take you out at any time of the day. I research the tide and take you out when the fish should be biting best. I run further and longer than most guides will. I am not out here to fish the mouth of the river with shrimp for lady fish and snapper. I want each and everyone of my guests to catch a trophy a fish. Once stepping aboard my boat the potential to catch a trophy fish is there. I am here for you and want to accommodate my guests in anyway that I possibly can.
I am out here because I love fishing! I want to share and teach my passion I have for the art of fishing. In the process I want to become friends, and develop long term relationships with my clients. I want to make your trip as memorable as possible and keep you coming back year after year!

Captain Josh C
I am a 4th generation native to Fort Myers, Florida. I grew up fishing the Caloosahatchee and surrounding waters of South West Florida. I started my salt water career in 1996 fishing with my dad and his buddies. I started guiding professionally in 2010. I am jack of all trades and master at catching Giant tarpon and big snook. I live to tarpon fish and I am one of the best. Please come join me and allow me to share my love and passion of fishing with you. I am here to show you the best possible time and give you a trip to remember for a lifetime.

Rules & Guidelines
WHAT TO BRING ON-BOARD
- Sunglasses: A good pair of polarized glasses is a key component out here on the water. If you have some bring them so you can see what I see. I personally where Costa del Mar and Smith optics.
- Food and Drink: Please bring ample food and snacks for you and your party. We can always stop at a local waterfront restaurant if you would like to eat on the water. I usually have water and ice aboard, however it doesn’t hurt to bring a few extras and I recommend it. Florida can be extremely hot and you can never have enough water.
- Sunscreen and a Towel: to clean off your hands after applying sunscreen, wipe fish slime off after taking pictures and or to sit on in the morning incase I forget mine or if the seats are soggy from rain the previous night
- A Tote bag, small back pack to carry your food and drinks on board, sunscreen, extra clothes, rain gear, ect. One that is compressible and easy to store. Storage is limited
- Cooler: If you plan on keeping your catch I recommend bringing your own cooler for the drive home. Yeti hoppers work great for this. Please leave big bulky coolers in your vehicle. I do not like the deck cluttered plus it is a tripping hazard. I want everyone to be as safe as possible.
WHAT NOT TO BRING ON-BOARD
- NO BANANAS, I repeat NO BANANAS they are SUPER bad luck.
- NO Spray sunscreen please: It leaves a slippery residue on the floor, gunnles and seats. Not only that it discolors cushions, and is safety hazard for myself and you
- Coolers: There is no room to store big bulky coolers. The boat has 2 large YETI coolers for your use. Little lunch box size, yeti hoppers ect. is fine.
- NO Black soled shoes please! Crocs, keens, black soled sneakers are the worst for my boat. Please. No shoes is best if the before mentioned is all you have, wear white bottom shoes or non marking soles. Sperry topsider, Columbia, olokai, pelagic, Huk gear makes great boat shoes and are awesome investments if you are a beach goer or boater.
- NO Styrofoam coolers, they never survive a trip and always lose their lids
Please note there is a 50% nonrefundable deposit included with your booking.
