We did a half day trip, and had a great time. I think we all caught more fish we had ever caught. Captain Kevin was a great host. I would recommend this charter to anyone, and will be coming back!

We had an extraordinary trip out with Captain Kevin!!  The fish were practically jumping in the boat. Great boat, great equipment, great Captain. If you have a couple 13 year olds with the itch to fish, this is definitely the tour. We even lit into a pretty good size shark. We will definitely come back to Capn Kevin

I will say we did catch a lot of small fish and fish we couldn’t keep due to out of season   Did have plenty of bait but no chum for reef fishing only tried 3 spots close to shore again no chum overall did catch fish I think it’s more suited for someone who wants to catch fish and release them I wanted dinner and we barely caught a snack so it’s up to you we didn’t even troll coming or going as I said earlier if you have a kid or two they will catch fish for me I took my Ararat out a lot further than this guy went not overly ecstatic just a little disappointed should’ve spent a little more and went out on a bigger boat in Islamorada

Thank you Norm for taking the time to leave a review. Yes, it is true that Hogfish and Grouper are out of season until May 1st.  and, I do use chum when it is necessary. However, when the fish are biting I may choose not to. This was a Patch Reef trip and Patch Reef fishing is done close to shore, any further out and we would be doing a different kind of fishing.  Had I known this was your preference I would have accommodated that request.  Since we fish on the inside of the reef, trolling isn’t recommended. My apologies that Just Ducky Charters did not live up to your expectations.

My family had a great day. Captain Kevin was very patient with my 10 year old daughter. We caught a lot of fish including a couple sharks that my 14 year old son had a blast reeling in. Would boon again. Thanks for a great day Kevin.

My wife and I did a trip with Capt Kevin and we had a blast. The boat was beautiful and just the right size for the two of us plus Capt. High quality Grady white boat meticulously maintained. A very short ride out and we fished 3-4 reef areas. Lots of smaller fish, but perfect for us as we were looking for the experience of catching a lot of fish vs catching a couple of big ones for dinner. Capt Kevin is the consummate professional, knows the waters like the back of his hand and we had great conversation while we fished. We caught grouper, grunts, yellow tail snappers and a few mangrove snappers, one large enough to bring to a local restaurant and have them cook for us for lunch. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend Kevin to host a great day for you.

We are a family of four including 18 and 21 year old sons who booked a 1/2 day charter with Capt Kevin during our New Year’s week trip to the Keys. Though the weather was windy and what the locals considered very cool and the water very choppy, Capt Kevin gave us a great trip and took us to two locations where all 4 of us caught many fish. He identified each species and told us about the meat. The highlight was my 21 year old being able to bring up to the side of the boat with the coaching of Capt Kevin a shark that was estimated at nearly 100 pounds. We didn’t have many keepers but he cleaned and packed them up for us under the watchful eyes of his 3 pet ducks. A fun trip for us all!

This was a fabulous fishing trip. Reservations and meeting at the dock could not have been easier. Kevin was very gracious, knowledgeable and patient with us. He even baited the hook for me all morning.  He knows just where to find the fish!!  You will not regret booking a trip with Kevin.

We had the most wonderful half-day fishing trip with Kevin. We originally intended to do some fishing and some snorkeling, but we had such a fun time fishing that we just kept fishing for the rest of the trip. We caught at least 12 species of fish, and had such an awesome time. It was a beautiful day, the water is gorgeous, the boat was very nice and Kevin was an awesome captain. We had such a great time and would absolutely do it again. We were wishing we could do this every weekend.  I would highly recommend Just Ducky Charters with Captain Kevin, and next time we’re in Florida we will definitely do this charter again.

I’ve never been fishing before and wasn’t too excited to go to be honest. I booked this trip for my husband’s birthday as he’s always told me about the fun he had fishing as a young lad. I’m really glad I booked this trip! Captain Kevin was friendly, knowledgeable and so patient. He knew all the best spots and we caught a lot of fish! So much fun. We’ll definitely be coming back soon with the kids.

My 52 year-old friend was looking forward to his first fishing excursion. Captain Kevin Mitchell’s familiarity with the Key Largo hot fishing spots along with his pleasant demeanor combined to make an impression so strong it has my friend wanting to return.
You come away more knowledgeable of the fish indigenous to the Upper Keys and informed of the regulations and restrictions anglers should know when fishing in the Keys. I definitely learned more.
Yes, I would recommend Captain Kevin Mitchell of Just Ducky Charters in a heartbeat. And so would my friend!

The weather was bad.  Capt. Kevin left it up to us if we wanted to reschedule.  WE made the decision to continue that day.  We were reef fishing so any good eating fish was ok with us.  The hoggish did not corporate but the yellow tail were in full swing.  I would recommend Capt. Kevin to all.  He was very professional and I never heard one foul word from him.  I had my wife and daughter with me and I’m very protective of them.  Capt Kevin put me right at ease.  Just wish I had more time and better weather..  Thanks again Capt. Kevin.  #FHPSTRONG

The captain worked hard to keep everyone, at all skill levels involved and having fun. This is a great boat for a family, who may not be hard core fisherman. I highly recommend it.”
