My children and I had never before been offshore fishing until we chartered with Gold Reserve, so you can understand our apprehension. To say the least, we were not disappointed. Captain Kevin and first mate Mike introduced themselves before boarding and I reiterated what we wanted to fish per our phone conversation in March. He explained we will be going 20 miles out to catch mahi's, to remain patient and we will catch them. Once we were over our first school, Mike had the rod's prepped and ready for us. As we each pulled one in, Mike unhooked our catch and handed us another baited rod. All the while, Captain is giving orders from his perch. Talk about a symphony! It was magically as we caught mahi after mahi while watching and listening to both Kevin and Mike work in unison. Working with computers, I know efficiency and this was wonderful. We understood we were the guest aboard his boat and when we did something against ship rules, they let us know. That's how you learn. I had no problem with it and we learned a lot and eventually were allowed to lend a hand on deck and reel and unreel the rigs. My son caught a 40 pound slammer and my daughter a 20 pdr. Not bad! All totaled, we caught 25 mahi's. Our expectations were exceeded: we learned a lot, caught more than anticipated and had fun all the while. Thank you Captain Kevin and First Mate Mike! We'll be back.
Kyle, Nick and Sky.

If you are going to Islamorada to charter a fishing boat, I highly recommend Captain Kevin Brown and Gold Reserve Charters! His experience and equipment will have you catching fish all day! He will do everything to make sure you get the fish you want to catch and make the most of your trip! You cannot go wrong with this charter!

Had a great time with friends fishing for tuna and Mahi. We all caught fish including two dolphin over 25 pounds. The captain and mate gave great tips and cleaned the fish for us upon docking. Would definitely return.
