Went fishing on Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Kevin was a good guy , put my son and myself on fish right off first anchor. Never stopped with baiting and getting lines ready. Never caught big fish but none the less we caught a lot of grey snapper “tacos”.For my 11 year old son it was a thrill of a life time to go fishing and I too enjoyed myself .

Thanks Kevin
Definitely would recommend him

Me and my son had a great time fishing. Captain Kevin was great, putting us on the fish and always keeping bait on the hooks. He is very friendly and great with my son who is 10 years old. My son told me next time we’re going back to captain Kevin for sure.  Thanks for the great time captain Kevin

Kevin works hard putting you on the fish and was successful. We caught Cobia, Sea Trout, Flounder, several varieties of reef fish which are perfect for fish tacos. We also caught 2 sharks and they tested my skills to the max. Overall it was a great day. Kevin is very personable and really loves what he does.

Kevin took my son, 2 of his friends and me out on a Saturday morning, and the experience was fantastic.  Captain Kevin taught us great techniques, provided all equipment, and made the entire trip an experience the boys won’t forget.

Went nearshore with Capt Kevin and had a great time. The bite was off, and Kevin worked very hard to put us on fish. He extended our time, and did everything he could to make the trip a success. He’s a very hard worker, and was right there with baits and removing fish.

Captain Kevin was such a pleasure to have as a Charter Captain. He worked with our group to ensure that we had a great time and controlled all the controllables when it came to taking out a group. He genuinely cared about our experience and made sure we caught some great fish to eat. Kevin is a great communicator and called the day before to ensure we were all set and ready to go for the next day. I’ve gone on several other charters before and he was by far the best prepared and most personable.. Thanks Captain Kevin and have a great year, we hope to be able to book with you next year.

We enjoyed the trip. Kevin is a hard-working and enjoyable person to fish with. We caught an array of fish including Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, redfish and an assortment of snapper and other reef fish. I would recommned Kevin ro anyone;  he knows where the fish are and has all the top tackle needed for each type of fish.

We had a great time fishing with Captain Kevin, although, we were hoping to catch more fish to take home. The best catch was a sting ray and a shark. We also caught snapper, flounder and a lot of little fish that we could not keep. It was a great time!
