I've gone on a lot of charters, and I can truly say Kevin is one of the best I've ever gone out with. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great time and caught lots of fish. He's a stand up guy who knows the area well, and is a great fisherman. Don't hesitate and... More

We had an excellent time fishing for yellowtail snappers. Captain Kevin is an excellent fishing coach especially for inexperienced anglers. He is very patient and explains the fishing process in detail. He watches out for you lines and holler "you have a bite, reel, reel, reel, fast, fast, fast ..". before I could even feel anything. If not for his... More

Thanks so much for the trip! It is a pleasure getting my anglers "up to SPEED" with what it takes to catch the tastiest fish that swim. It is a fun process to watch when it works well! More

I have been fishing for years and I am always searching for someone who knows what they are doing. Kevin is an expert fisherman and took me to find one of my bucket list species- a hog fish. He is very knowledgeable, hard working and a very easy person to be with. I recommend him to anyone who wants a... More

It was an honor to help you check one off the list. I know you had many choices and made a long drive to fish with me. That, in itself, is a great compliment and shows your confidence in me! More

We fished with Kevin March 5th, 2013 and had a terrific experience. Our kids are ages 3, 6 and 7 and they all had a blast. Kevin was great with the kids and rolled with two of them feeling seasick and a surprise rain storm with ease. We probably caught 40 fish and could have caught a lot more if... More

We booked a trip Feb. 17th, 2014 for a party of 5 including 3 young boys. Cap't Kevin was excellent with the children and had us on fish all morning long. He sent us home with tons of fish for dinner and memories to last a lifetime.

I hired Captain Kevin for a half-day guided trip on my rented vessel the first day of my week-long vacation. It was a great investment! I learned a lot, he provided pertinent safety and navigation tips, we caught some nice fish, and he left me armed with more knowledge, techniques and places to try than I had time for. I... More

We had a fantastic time fishing with Kevin. Talk about an exhilarating and fun afternoon, pulling in fish faster than he could bait the reel! Kevin has what it takes to provide a great time! We are planning our next trip already!

With cpt Kevin Johnsen at the wheel you can't go wrong. I live in Scandinavia and sent requests to quite a few charter companies a couple of weeks before our vacation in the Keys. Kevin Johnsen responded blazingly fast and provided relevant information, a plan for the trip and even a back up plan. It all went like clockwork, we... More

We had a great time fishing with Kevin. We are experienced fresh water anglers but salt water fishing was new to our family. Kevin showed us everything we needed to know and we were quickly pulling fish in. We caught over 75 fish in the 4 hours that we were with Kevin. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge about fishing... More

Our family loved the four hour reef fishing trip with Captain Kevin. He was very knowledgable, and the boat was wonderful. This trip turned even my thirteen-year-old daughter into a fishing aficionado! Take this trip at the beginning of your vacation and you won't have to buy meat for the rest of the week.
