All I have to say is call him and book a day! No matter what you want to do on the water, from fishing to pleasure cruise, he's your guy! You won't be disappointed!

We had never been fishing with Kevin before. He came highly recommended from a friend. And we were NOT disappointed. He definitely knows where the fish are. We caught about 100 fish. Hogfish, porgi, yellowfin, yellow tail, etc. Too many to name. When you're in Marathon and want to catch fish, be sure to see Kevin. You won't be sorry.

What a great time on Florida Bay. Kevin was so patient with me and we caught some fish before the storm moved in. I knew it would be iffy, as this is so dependent on the weather and current. I really needed the boat and water to relieve the stress today. Lazy Days cooked the fresh fish.

Fishing was awesome. Went out in rough conditions and the 23' center console Cat handled like a champ. Feels like a 29', tons of room. Capt Kevin got us on the fish and kept us well informed with bite changes and how toos. Changed like 6 locations and kept the bite coming. All and all 100% gpa for Capt Kevin.... More

Very good with my kids. They love fishing with Capt. Kevin. We catch the most interesting variety of fish every trip. This trip for my son's birthday the main catch of the day was shark! They just thought that was cool.

We had an awesome experience with Kevin! He was patient and clearly focused on giving us the best experience possible! He has earned all five stars! We are both novice fishermen and yet Kevin made us "look good" - teaching us too "hook-set" and reel 'em in... We caught so many species in a very short time, and, he was... More

Ben, you booked this trip through another website, not mine, and threw money away. You paid the price and encouraged me to run this trip in conditions that I kept you completely updated on and my description was "borderline at best." We had 32 emails of discussions and updates between us. You talked me through this whole idea of how... More
