Florida Keys Reel Adventures

Florida Keys Reel Adventures

Capt. Kevin Johnsen is a licensed USGC Master Captain, avid diver and 30 plus year resident of Marathon and the middle Keys. Growing up on the unspoiled beaches and waters of the Florida Keys, he developed the attraction and life long bond to the ocean. After a 10 year hiatus in the suburbs of Chicago, the ocean called him back to the Keys to be reunited with liquid paradise. His adventures started small, spearfishing with friends from a small boat on the weekends and rod and reel fishing when the water temperatures fell below "warm". Soon the weekend adventures became unbelievable local fish stories until photo and video documentation was required to back up the claims. Word of mouth spread through friends of friends and it became clear that it was time to build a business to share these experiences with others who shared the love for the water, but had limited time and budgets. Capt. Kevin has held a variety of jobs on the water from traveling marine service engineer, watersports guide, kayak guide and boat rentals to commercial lobster and yellowtail fishing.

Main Attraction Fishing Charters

Main Attraction Fishing Charters

We have confidence that our new customers will appreciate the hard work and effort that The Main Attraction Fishing Team does for them, especially on the days the bite is slower. Customers and anglers should realize that while Florida Keys fishing is some of the best in the world every day is different. Our repeat customers realize this fact. Some days you catch lots of fish and other days the bite is slower. We work very hard and try different things to find what is working on any given day but will also advise you if we believe the bite is off due to conditions. You have the option to call the trip early and come in early and pay only for the time we have fished. Main Attraction like "CATCHING NOT FISHING". You should listen to the advice of your Captain as many times we can fish for different species than the original species targeted and still have a good day. But, if The Main Attraction Fishing Team is "skunked", our "Full Day" fish guarantee goes into effect.
