Head out with Captain Kevin for an awesome inshore fishing experience in the rich waters of Florida's Nature Coast! This area has a huge variety of different fish species, from classics like Redfish, Black Drum, Snook, Flounder and Trout, to gamefish such as Tarpon, Cobia and Sharks. You name it, Captain Kevin will help you hook it!...Read More
To catch these fish, you will be mostly fishing the inshore bays and flats of Crystal River to Homosassa. These flats are a perfect place to practice sightcasting to tailing Reds, so bring your A-game. There is nothing more rewarding than spotting, stalking, and making a perfect cast to an unsuspecting fish, and the rush of that hook set is an experience you won't soon forget. Captain Kevin is great at teaching new fishermen these techniques, so whether you're a seasoned veteran looking for a personal best or a beginner looking to learn the ropes, Captain Kevin will work his hardest to make sure you have the best possible experience out on the water!
You'll fish from the deck of his 24' Aeon bay boat—an ideal vessel for these waters. She's powered by an ultra-reliable 300 HP Mercury Verado 4-stroke outboard, so you'll be on fish in absolutely no time at all. She also features a raised tower that allows Capt. Kevin to spot Tripletail hanging out near the crab buoys, or trophy Snook along mangrove shorelines. You'll be using Florida Fishing Products spinning reels and Bulls Bay rods on your trip, but you're more than welcome to bring any of your own gear, if you like. Otherwise, all you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, and Captain Kevin will take care of the rest!

Complete customer satisfaction is my goal and I will strive to accomplish that on each and every trip."

We had a great experience with Captain Kevin. It was our first time out on the Gulf and we had never saltwater fished before. While my son and I are into fishing my wife and two daughters are not, but they had a great time. Captain Kevin was great at ...Read More putting us on spots that allowed us to catch a lot of fish. The full day went by very quickly. He was also great with the tackle and keeping us fishing. It was no small task to keep five of us fishing. While we didn’t land a shark we did have one on for a bit which was a blast. He was very patient, had a great sense of humor, and never lost his patience with us even when I did :-). We also got to see a bunch of dolphins. We just ate our fish and it was delicious. I highly recommend Captain Kevin, especially for a family trip since he was so family-friendly. We hope to go fishing with him again.
