Kevin was excellent working with my 14 and 16 year old boys. When conditions did not look good for reef fishing, Kevin quickly adjusted the plan (including rods and reels) to successfully fish for Mutton Snapper around deep wrecks. We then went back to the reef and hit the mother load of yellow tail snapper. Great day!

Captain Kevin really knows how to create the perfect day of action on the water. A true keys experience like no other. Will be back again for sure.

First off- I can't imagine that there's a captain anywhere who will work as hard for you as Kevin Johnsen. We went out as a group of 5, with only one of us having any deep sea fishing experience. The day was gorgeous, but not the best for fishing (loads of scattered seaweed and very few seabirds). After a couple... More

My husband and I booked Captain Kevin for a night fishing trip in early June. I liked that he asked us what our goal was. Did we want to catch a big fish, or did we want dinner? Of course we wanted to catch a big fish, but we also wanted to be able to take some fish back home... More

Most of my family were experienced fishers expect for me, and he was patient enough to help me learn the technique and I was able to catch some yellow tail snappers myself! After we did... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kevin and our trips with him. We were lucky enough to book a trip with him 2 years ago, and it wound up making our trip. We came back this year in order to do 3 trips with him, and each one was incredible!! He's amazingly skillful and adapted each trip to our... More

We had been out with Kevin several years before and had a great time then... More
