Captain Joe Smith
Joe has had a life-long love of the outdoors and is a dedicated conservationist. Growing up on the largest lake in New Jersey he has spent his entire life fishing different bodies of water for a variety of species. From tuna fishing off Sandy Hook, NJ to tournament fishing in the Great Lakes, Joe has spent his life on the water. For the last 15 years Joe’s focus has been fishing the offshore waters of Cape Canaveral and Florida’s Space Coast. He considers it one of the most dynamic and productive fishing grounds he has experienced. Joe has extablished himself as a top charter captain and one of the leading swordfisherman in the area.
In addition to a life of fishing, Captain Joe Smith owned and operated a successful heating and plumbing company. Further, Joe has served as a Volunteer Fire Fighter for over 25 years earning the rank of Captain. In 2007 he was selected to join the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Polar Winter Expedition as both Director of Heating & Plumbing Operations and acting Fire Chief. During this nine month expedition, Joe was responsible for the safety of 43 researchers and crew during the long and harsh Arctic winter.
Joe previously served on the Board of the Florida Sport Fishing Association and is active in many conservationist efforts. Both Saint Somewhere Charters and Captain Joe invite everyone to come and experience a great day of fishing.
