Background
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!
Techniques
I do trolling and bottom fishing, and occasional sight fishing, I impress many captains, mates and clients with my ability to hold the boat over a spot for long periods of time. my large amount of fishing spots, I never run out of places to fish
