Growing up on the waters of Naples and Marco Island since 1969, Captain Joe, has been fishing the waters around Florida since he was a child. At the age of 7 he discovered that fishing was one of the greatest things on earth. At 13 Captain Joe got his first boat and has been saltwater fishing ever since.Of course, like all great fisherman, Captain Joe has not limited his fishing experiences to the Florida Waters.

Obtaining his Captains licenses from the U.S.Coast Guard in December 1996 Captain Joe has been guiding and chartering the waters off of Naples and Marco Island for 10 years. His extensive experience and knowledge in the area has allowed him to find the most exclusive spots to fish.

Captain Jeremy A Kiley
Captain Jeremy A Kiley is at home when he’s on the water. Whether it’s fishing offshore for grouper or pelagics, drifting along the flats riddled with oyster bars, or simply island hopping for seashells. His love for nature and water began at the age of three on lakes, rivers, and streams in Georgia. Having family in central Florida he naturally took to the beach, bay, and offshore life every summer while out of school. In his early twenties he decided to make the paradise coast his permanent home. He started out as a mate for the company and soon progressed into our primary captain. He lives and breaths for fishing and boating while keeping a conservative mind for nature and safety of all persons aboard the vessel. He works hard to get you to your destination and back safely and comfortably.
We fish in several areas of the Gulf of Mexico from North Naples to Marco Island. We follow the fish as they move thru the area, we do not go to the same spot every day. This allows us to land
fish on every trip and not over fish the area. Backwater-flats fishing is done the same way we follow the fish in and around the islands.
We would like to thank our sponsors who keep Team Connie Jean fishing!
