Captain Ken’s Fishing Expeditions

Captain Ken’s Fishing Expeditions invites you for a good time on the waters of St. Marys, Georgia. This area consists of very nutrient rich water-beds where many shallow water fish like to spend their days. You can target a Redfish or a Sheepshead while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

You will fish with Captain Ken Olson who was featured on the TV show The Nuts and Bolts of Fishing that showed Captain Cefus McRae and Captain Ken having a great time catching all kinds of fish. Captain Ken obtained his fishing license in Florida, where he also started his business, before moving to St. Marys.

He is a lovable person who in turn loves to take new guests out on the water and show them how to catch many tasty species. You will target Sheepshead, Black Seabass, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Whiting, Black Drum, and Flounder.

You will fish aboard 19-foot Century center console, which is powered by a 150HP Yamaha engine and has a capacity for 3 guests. The boat is equipped with life jackets for safety and a fishfinder and GPS for locating the best fishing spots.

Captain Ken’s Fishing Expeditions provides the fishing gear and the live baits, as well as a fishing license. The boat contains a live well for the baits and an icebox for your catch.

Once your trip is over, Captain Ken will clean and fillet your catch, so make sure to bring a cooler in order to transport your fish home safely. Capt. Ken works hard to put you on the fish and show you a good time with no yelling - just fun!

Captain Kenneth moved to South West Florida back in the 1990's starting his flats and backcountry fishing business. Since then, he has obtained a Captain's license and has not looked back. He relocated to Saint Mary's in Georgia in 2008 where he learned even more about fishing knowledge. He loves taking his guests on fun trips where tasty fish can be caught.
