Specializing in Light tackle and fly fishing charters

30 Plus Years of Guiding Experience.

For 30 plus years, I’ve been guiding in my home waters of Southeast Florida. I specialize in light tackle and fly fishing charters in Biscayne Bay, The Florida Keys, and Everglades National Park. In Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys, I predominantly pursue bonefish, permit, and tarpon, but if you want to chase after tailing redfish, and snook, tucked in some the most remote places, then my knowlege of Everglades National Park is what you’re after. However, where we go, you can be sure that we are going to have lots of fun.




Gorgeous Locations!

Funny Bone Charters with Captain Joe Gonzalez offers a fun fishing experience on the waters of Miami’s Biscayne Bay, the Upper Keys or Flamingo – Everglades National Park. Capt. Joe specializes in flyfishing and light tackle fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, redfish, snook, trout, shark, barracuda and more.


We invite you to experience the flats, estuaries and ecosystem of this wonderful state while we share with you the beauty of Florida’s coast.


Wherever we go, prepare to have serious fun!


Bonefish are speedy and will make you drag sing. Indeed they are hard to see, but I’ll put you on them.

The permit is probably the most elusive of any the fish that can be pursued on the flats, but I’ve landed many on my boat.

This ferocious beast will test what an angler is made of. Let me help you make the right presentation and maneuvers to land a silver king.

Snook are plentiful in the Southeast of Florida. Join me as we search for monster snook.

Sight fishing for reds is a whole lot of fun. We have plenty of  in them on the flats in Flamingo National Park.
