Captain Kenny has over 40 years of experience on the water. Kenny fell in love with fishing at an early age, fishing with his dad and grandfathers in City Island, Jamaica Bay, and the Rockaways. Kenny is an avid angler with a vast knowledge about various fish species from Striped Bass, Fluke, Seabass, Porgy, and Tautog to Sharks and Tuna.

Together with his first mate, Kenny will go above and beyond to make sure you have a fun day out, catch plenty of fish, and come back for more!
