Gold Reserve Charters Capt. Kevin Brown. I have been fishing the Florida Keys for over 20 years. I offer many different kinds of fishing. And will custom taller a fishing trip to your likings. I have a very nice 41 foot custom built sport fish for offshore fishing. Also I offer affordable evening family shark and tarpon trips. I also have an 18 foot Hewes flats boat to take you into the backcountry and everglades.
