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!

Went out about 27 miles to marathon hump and caught about 50 fish...no joke! A little choppy on the water, but overall would highly recommend.

Our group of five (3 women/2 men) fished with Kevin yesterday 3/3. We had a blast! We caught lots of fish (more or less non stop action) and numerous species. Kevin is a fun guy and works hard to make the trip memorable. The boat and equipment are first rate. Our trip was better than we expected and if we... More

Captain Kevin Johnsen - Thanks again for making our trip one of the best EVER. We ate our catch over 2 days, and really feasted on the tasty variety of snapper, pompano and hogfish. My wife caught a 20-25lb Jack Crevalle that was the biggest fish she's ever hauled in. Incredible experience! My wife and I both appreciated your dedication... More

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.
