“Fishng with Captain Doug Kelly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I fished with Captain Doug last Thursday. We had a great morning. He made the whole trip relaxed fun. I said I just wanted to bend the pole, and have fun and thats exactly what Doug arranged. Light tackle, plenty of fish capped off by catching cero mackeral exploding on top water plugs. He knows where to go, what to do in a relaxed professional manner.

“Lobstermania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I had to write another review after my 2nd experience with Capt. Doug. Looking for something "different" to do, he suggested going out and snorkeling for lobster. I jumped at the opportunity, thinking that even swimming in the pristine Marathon waters would be worth the trip and if we grabbed a lobster or 2 it would be icing on the cake.

Boy was I wrong! Capt. Doug "hooked it up" again putting us on spot after spot crawling with keeper lobster, far away from other boats, proving he knows what others simply don't. After just 3-4 hrs, we had 16 on the boat, witnessed beautiful wildlife (sea turtles, fish, coral). It was an unforgettable experience and once again Doug proved why he is the best there is.

“Great time fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Doug is the perfect person to go fishing with. He will customize the trip based on what you are seeking. My wife and I had such a great time catching fish to cook for dinner later that night. We would highly recommend him for any type of fishing excursion.

“Our unbelievable day out with Doug”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We set out for the day with high hopes of filling the coolers with fish for dinner and that's exactly what we did. We started out with a commitment of a 3/4 day and the fishing was so good we pushed it to a full day. We started the day fishing shipwrecks and caught large gag grouper, mutton and vermillion snappers and some extremely hard fighting amberjacks. Then we finished the rest of our day on the reef flipping yellowtail and lane snappers into the boat Captain Doug fillet all of our fish for us at the end of the day and sent us home with more than 5 gallon bags full of our epic catch will definitely choose captain Doug for our fishing expeditions in the keys again and again.
