    This is the shortest trip we offer - a chance to enjoy the Gulf but not too long or too far from shore, usually less than 13 miles. You will be trolling, bottom fishing or shark fishing. There is not much time to do a combination trip, but we could try! Contact the captain to discuss longer trip options (6 and 8 hour trips are usually more productive).

Captain Ken always loved fishing. He was born in South Florida and grew up on the water. When Ken was a teenager, he would often go out to sea at night on a boat that he built from scrap. He would go alone and fish without having to worry about anything. During his career as a tool dealer and a mechanic, he bought and reconditioned a great number of boats. And finally, in 1999 he decided to make a living at it. His first boat was the ‘Hooker Up’ 29’ Aquasport. Two years later, Ken joined a large fleet on Destin and worked part-time as a mate and mechanic, which eventually turned him into a full-time captain for the fleet. In 2005, Ken founded Just B Cause Charters, which has proven to be a great success. Captain Ken has run over 2500 fishing charters. The numbers speak for themselves!
