Captain Joe Gonzalez’s Funny Bones Charters specializes in light-tackle and fly-fishing charters targeting bonefish and permit on the flats of Miami’s Biscayne Bay and the Upper Keys. A seasoned veteran of the South Florida fishing circuit, Captain Joe is also a major player in local marine conservation.





The fishing

Captain Joe Gonzalez has been fishing the South Florida area since his childhood, and has guided fishermen from Biscayne Bay to the Florida Keys and Flamingo for the last 22 years.

Specializing in fly-fishing and light-tackle fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, redfish, snook, trout, shark, barracuda and more, Joe fishes out of a state-of-the-art Hell’s Bay Marquesa. This boat is known for its stealth and comfort, making it easier to sneak up on the fish in style.

In addition to his reputation as a foremost guide in the South Florida area, Joe is a key figure in local environmental initiatives, working closely with the University of Miami on their Bonefish Research Program. He has tagged and released more bonefish than any other angler since tagging began in 2001 – 1,324 fish in total (the only angler to pass the 1,000 mark), with 52 recaptures. He famously tagged the bonefish that proved the migratory patterns of bonefish from Florida to the Bahamas, a record migration of 187 miles.
