Fished with Capt. Kevin back in March during what many said was the busiest couple of weeks they had ever seen. from our perspective it most certainly was the busiest we had ever seen it. After our original charter had some transmission problems prior to our scheduled trip, the Capt. made a phone call for help to a friend, Capt.... More

I had the opportunity to fish with Kevin twice this week. The first trip was with my wife, daughter (13) and her friend. Kevin did a great job with the kids and geared the trip toward making certain there was plenty of action. We caught a nice variety of yellowtail and hogfish. Kevin was great with the kids. Day two...

Highly reccommended. This was our second time to book Captain Kevin Johnsen to fish with the whole family. We drove down from Islamorada for him because we didn't want to take any chances with our day out in the water. We knew that he would deliver a great time. He is personable, professional, customer service orientated and very knowledgeable about... More

Capt. Kevin runs a tight ship. Remember, he wants you to catch fish, tell your friends and come back. He uses all his tricks to make it happen! This is a professional charter captain who takes this very seriously. He is a student of the seas and if you listen to the cues he is giving you, practice what he... More

One of the greatest challenges planning a vacation is finding a good fishing charter. You need to look no farther. I love to fish, but I am not an expert angler and we had my wife, mother, son and girlfriend along. Kevin put us on the fish immediately and we caught 60 + fish in the first 90 minutes and... More

I called Kevin out of the blue to request a few hours on the water for fishing after reading his reviews, and they are spot on. He squeezed us in the next day. Kevin knows what he's doing and it appears the fish are working for him. Dropped two lines in and within 30 secs my son and I were... More

What a blast! Kevin took out our group of adults and kids, including a small toddler, and he was amazing. He's great with the kids and really made sure they had a fabulous time. Seriously, even my two year old caught fish in droves! Boat and equipment were both excellent, and we felt very well taken care of. We've also... More

Captain Kevin goes out of his way to deliver an outstanding fishing experience. We went offshore for tuna and were not disappointed... Caught over 30, including some big ones. Then we headed for the reefs for hogfish, snapper, grouper, and more. Great trip!
