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. Captain Kenny fished for giant Tuna up on the Cape for many years before deciding to start his own business in Montauk. The company he runs and operates – My Joyce Fishing Charters – takes part in many tournaments. 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!
