My brother and I took a 4 hr trip for redfish and sea trout. Fishing was slow and catching was slower yet. We did catch enough for a couple of meals. Captain Kevin had good equipment, a clean comfortable boat and gave us 100% effort. Beautiful weather too.

Captain Kevin was fantastic! He put us on the fish right away and even played music while in route to our first stop and return trip to the Marina. He was on time, friendly, and knowledgeable of his profession. He took care of cleaning our catch and even gave us a bag of ice for the fish. He is top knotch and I highly recommend!!

Had a Great time fishing with Captain Kevin!! It was late December with temperatures in the mid to upper 60’s Fishing this time of year can be spotty at best but Kevin knew where to find fish. We fished for 3-4 hours and caught almost 2 limits of Black Drum and several Trout (to small to keep) but still fun to catch. This was a father and son trip worth every penny!!! Thanks again to Captain Kevin!!!!

The fish did not cooperate as well as we would have liked but it was not from a lack of trying on Captain Kevin’s part. He worked diligently to put us on the fish and we could see them, on scanner and in the water, but they simply were not actively feeding. That’s why it’s called fishing and not catching! Still had a blast and will be doing it again.

Fish did not cooperate and Kevin worked very hard to put us on some fish. We will book with Kevin again for 7 hour trip. He has a great boat a good personality and his wife owns a great pizza restaurant on the island. I don’t think you can go wrong by booking with him. Thanks a great time Kevin. Roger and Greg

Our trip was excellent! Capt. Kevin is a great guide, very knowledgeable, and pleasant to be around. My sons and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip and limiting out is always a bonus!

Great fishing action and quality fish. Half hour boat ride but Kevin knew where he was going and we caught fish immediately. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND Captain Kevin.

Dylan S.

Fishing

It was a tough day of fishing (cold and windy), but Captain Kevin did everything he could to ensure we caught some fish. He was very knowledgeable of the area, the different fish, and the times they were biting best. We were a larger group of beginners with a couple kids. He was very patient with us and was able to get my daughter her first big catch. I would highly recommend his guide service to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing day of fishing.
