About Captain Joe

a man holding a fish in the waterCaptain Joe Cassaro, also known by his friends and around town as Joe Snook, has been sight fishing starting in Matlacha pass, Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor and the Everglades for over 30 years fishing for tarpon, snook, redfish, man eating sharks and all other fish that lurk in these waters. It has always been a childhood dream to become an inshore shallow water fishing captain. After 8 years of guiding full time, fishing still holds the energy and excitement he had guiding his first day. Fishing is his passion and guiding is his life, not a hobby or extra income, it is solely how he makes his living and has been running a growing successful guiding business since 2010. Every trip is to hunt down and catch as many and as big of fish he can put his clients on. The goal is to make the best and most memorable trip that his Anglers can have. This is a professional and legitimate run business- Capt. Joe keeps current on all of his licenses, insurance and safety equipment required by the law and the United States Coast Guard.
