Gold Reserve Charters Capt. Kevin Brown. I have been fishing the Florida Keys for over 20 years. I offer many different kinds of fishing. And will custom taller a fishing trip to your likings. I have a very nice 41 foot custom built sport fish for offshore fishing. Also I offer affordable evening family shark and tarpon trips. I also have an 18 foot Hewes flats boat to take you into the backcountry and everglades.

We took our family of 4 children out for an evening of fishing. At first we thought Captain Kevin was joking when he said we were out to catch sharks. Boy, did he deliver. Each of our kids wrangled in a shark or two. Captain...More

We planned the "4 to 7 pm family time." It was a great way to spend the afternoon. Our daughters had a fun reeling in the big game fish! We caught and released 7 nurse sharks, 3 tarpon, 1 barracuda and 1 mutton snapper. Captain...More

Don't waste your time or money. We dropped a grand for 3/4 day and caught two fish. Really?? I've been a guide and also chartered a ton of boats. This by far was the worst experience ever. When we got to the reef and asked...More

Capt' Kevin and mates Sammy and Cole made our two trips this past week the best. Got us on the fish immediately, was patient with newbies, and was well worth the money. Do NOT hesitate to book with these guys.
