We truly had a fantastic fishing trip with Capt. Kevin! I had been a little unsure about our trip since it was the first time for our 5-year old son, 10-year old daughter, and myself; and it had been 20 years since my husband had been fishing. On top of that, two days before our trip it was extremely windy... More

Captain Kevin Johnsen works hard to make your trip special. We had an awesome day fishing. He will customize the trip to suit your needs. He will be my first call next time we come.

We highly recommend Capt. Kevin Johnsen. Every location he took us to we were catching fish left and right. He was also very knowledgable in the locations where we fished at and knew what type of fish were the areas.

This is what my husband continues to tell his friends! He also says he will call Captain Kevin the next time he visits Marathon. I wasn't with him, but saw the pics of several fish...too many to count. Capt. Kevin filleted six pounds for us to eat that night. Would have been more, but we were leaving the next day.... More

Great time. Very hardworking captain. Wasn't sure how our crew would do in the ocean side but he eased us out there with no sickness. Made sure we we had action every second he could. Highly recommend to anyone looking to catch fish.

My 14 yr old son and I wanted a day of fishing in the keys and Kevin was highly recommended by a family member who knows the local area. We are novice fisherman and wanted a guide to help us with the right bait, location and just do it all. Kevin did not disappoint! Our day started with some Snapper... More

Where do I begin....Captain Kevin took us out of his way to show us what the ocean had to offer and for these land lock youngster it was amazing! Not only did we get to go shark fishing (yes SHARK fishing) we got the chance to learn about the area and the weather thanks to the storm that came out... More

Captain Kevin is the BEST! We had a group of six on the boat, and he worked his butt off to show us a great time! He definitely knows what he's doing and had super valuable information -- not to mention just being a cool dude. By the end of the day, we had caught a total of 29 fish!... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to tell others of your experience with me! Fewer of my customers choose to give back to me despite a very high percentage of my first time customers coming from this site. I appreciate the review and hope to get you back on the water for another adventure! Kevin More
