Florida Headwaters is an amazing fishery

Joe Gruny
Capt Joe Gruny really knows his stuff, he took my wife and I for a 6 hour trip to Headwaters Lake in Fellsmere. The morning shiner bite was awesome where my wife caught several in the 5lb range. We fished artificial baits in the afternoon and the fishing was just as good. Amazing fishery and Capt Joe was great, knows the lake well and knew how to put us on them. He also introduced me to the legend Roland Martin to start the day off, very memorable experience

Caught fish each time

Joe Gruny
Went fishing with Capt Joe several times, Caught fish each time. I like fishing Lake Istokpoga and Lake June. Capt Joe has a really nice boat and equipment, which made it nice that we didn't have to bring our own.
