Captain Joey Sposato
Captain Joey Sposato is a 6th generation Floridian from Tallahassee, Florida. His love for The Forgotten Coast began as a child while enjoying the white sand beaches and fishing with his family. In college, the past time turned into a full blown addiction. From Fly Fishing small ponds to going offshore for grouper, it was all consuming. Now he spends his time chasing the Silver King and Redfish in his poling skiff. He has fished all over Florida but chooses to make these pristine waters his home. There is no greater excitement than seeing a tarpon grab your fly in shallow, crystal clear water. Come visit The Forgotten Coast with Captain Joey and see what this beautiful stretch of coastline has to offer. Capt Joey will be guiding out of a 2000 Hell's Bay Guide. It floats shallow, takes swell, and can pretty much handle whatever the northern gulf can throw at it.
