Football & Fishing!!

“Trip with my sons included football game & awesome morning of Inshore fishing with Captain Brad! Even in the bad temps we were reeling them in! My 21-yr. old claimed it to be the experience he has always dreamed of. Thanks Brad!

Fishing in Marathon

We spent 3 days fishing with Captain Brad and could not have asked for a better guide!! My father who is 83 and who has some physical limitations, was fishing with my daughter and I. Brad was fantastic with my Dad. He was very patient and helpful and gave us all an exceptional trip! We caught a ton of fish and laughed and enjoyed ourselves all day long. I would recommend Brad to anyone who wants a guide who is an expert and who wants to have a fantastic fishing trip!

Trip of a lifetime

“I booked a trip for 3 days with “Captain Brad" My father, my son, and myself. Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to do this, and ending with Captain Brad was another blessing. We thoroughly enjoyed his company, his hospitality, and his ability to put us on the fish. We all 3 caught our personal best. Thanks Captain Brad. If I get the chance to do something like this again, you're the ones I'll call.
- Victor Wyant

Great fun!

- James Smith

Great Overall Experience

Have been to Marathon Beach, I love the beach. My husband wanted to go fishing, we were told was a good referral. The experience was all round fantastic, next year it's not only the beaches...but we're already planning another fishing trip.
- Sherly Smith

Only PRO Guide Service I will go with...

This was about my 14th fishing trip to Florida. I have fished East coast Cape Canaveral several times, even the Lagoon south of Daytona. I can honestly say that this was the best fishing trip that I have ever been on. I have caught large fish in the past or caught quantity fish on trips but never have I been on a trip where both occurred...
- Doug Jones

Amazing Inshore Trip

Can't say enough about how everything went, very pleased with the entire process...we will do it again!
- James Scott

Great time on the water!

- Josh Williams

Great Service & fun

Took a inshore fishing trip with the family, what a great experience from the beginning to the end will be back next year!
- Sammy Smith

Captian Brad was amazing

Great experience, was not cheap but this outfit was exactly what I was looking for. I found them on Google and then on Tripadvisor. Captain Brad called me the day before the trip, told him we were bringing our daughters 5 and 7. He recommend I meet him about 15 minutes from where I was staying. He had a great boat that fit everyone and once we got to his fishing hole it was non stop until 12pm. We caught over 30 fish it was amazing. Captain Brad was all over the boat taking a fish off here, helping one of the kids reel in fish after fish, was changing wacky worms on all our bait. Next year when we come back we are 100% booking Brad again.

Capt Brad put us on some monster fish, be careful of the lightening storms, they roll in fast. But awesome trip, will do it again.
- Greg Lena

Inshore fishing

Captain Brad was great. Even though the fishing was slow the time of year I went. He knew where to find the fish.
- Robert Novell

Fishing with Captain Brad was amazing!

Capt Brad immediately put us on large bass. The capt is also a class act! Trip of a lifetime! You need to fish with Brent.
- Mark Martella

Fun Day on the water!

Captain Steve had us on the water a few minutes early and had us hooked up within the first 15 minutes of lines in (4# 11 oz). Post full moon made the bite sporadic but we caught (and lost) several fish. The Captain was enthusiastic and attentive.. never a dull moment with stories and quips... just like you would expect from an experienced fisherman!

Amazing Fishing

Despite the weather, fishing was amazing. Capt. Steve took me out and we caught a lot of big beautiful large mouth bass.
- Eddier731

Amazing Fishing Charter

Every year I have a business conference in Daytona and this year was one for the books. We had a long break one of the conference days and a buddy of mine and I went on a fishing charter out of Marathon Beach and it was an unbelievable trip. We caught multiple sea trout and the Captain was awesome. Marathon is a beautiful place to visit and see from a boat. This is a highly recommended trip for all parties.
- Bryan S

Capt Brent is awesome!

Great day fishing with Capt. will definitely request him next time out!! Caught a load of fish with both artificial and live-bait!
- Lawrence L

Fishing with Capt Brad

Wow, great fun and experience! Capt Brad put us on big fish and we had such a good time. Newly wed wife caught her first 4 fish! Caught 11 fish each, Will definitely use Capt Brad again next time we are in Florida.
- Poet60jg

Great time with the family!

What a great experience we had dealing with NSFC from the time we booked online it went smooth as ice. We met Captain Steve at the boat ramp, which was easy to find. We caught Redfish, Trout and several other species of fish. Capt Steve information and knowledge of the area was incredible and made the trip that much better. We would highly recommend these folks, they are first class!
- Tom L

Great captain and experience!

Very nice and experienced Captain! Took us to best fishing areas and tour of islands. Highly recommend!
- Melissa T

Captain Brad is Amazing!!

We went fishing with Captain Brad and he put on top of the biggest bass we had ever seen! One after another until our arms were sore (a great fishing problem to have, lol!) My 13 year old boy had the time of his life and the 3 days in the Disney parks were nothing to him compared to our day fishing with Captain Brad. It was his favorite day! Thanks Ever so much for creating everlasting memories and next time we are in Florida, we will be calling!! Kind Regards,
- Robert Glen

Fantastic Experience!

Was a all around great trip friendly service. I booked the trip online, after the Capt. called to review what I wanted to experience and catch. He then took us to great fishing spots and we caught 24 fish he was a joy to be around while we were having fun.
- Timothy Cunning

Gary Carpenter

I normally visit my son at UF, I was spending some time with my family and wanted to show my son and 2 grandchildren what fishing is really like in Florida. We booked online and scheduled us for a four hour outing with Captain who has a larger boat that would accommodate me and my brood. Captain was very accommodating and proved to have a wealth of local knowledge. Will do it again on the next visit!
- My son, two grandsons and I

Charter Fishin Review

Earlier this month a friend and I chartered Capt Brad for some fishing. Even though the weather was cold, we caught a number of fish. Capt Brad knew where the hot spots were and made the trip memorable. I will use Brad in the future and gladly recommend him to others.

Fishing in Marathon

This trip was a blast! We caught many large mouth Bass on our day. The weather was nice on the water, and we caught so many fish.
- Emily M

Great day on the water.

Went out with Capt Brad. Not a great day weather wise, but not bad. Little windy, some rain. 2 of us we each caught 2 large Redfish. Brad was great and educational. Will come back for sure.
- Mike M

A good day on the Lagoon

Spent the day with Capt Chris hunting Snook & Redfish on the Indian Lagoon. Despite some brutal windy conditions, Chris put us on fish right away. Although we did not catch as many fish as we wanted (who does?), Chris was professional, friendly and informative.
- GlenLivet

What a trip!!!

Great time fishing caught lots of fun and learned a lot what a time with jokes and the giant fish were lots of fun hope to do it again sometime.

Big Bass

We spent two days fishing, 1 for Largemouth Bass and 1 Inshore fishing with Captain Brad. The experience was more than promised. The guide was experienced, courteous, a great teacher and a gentleman. Although he apologized for the slow fishing, we boated nearly fifty fish in two days. We will be back next season. He made the planning and execution very easy.
- David L


Our guide was very amazing! He was very informative and taught my fiance some new tricks for when he goes fishing solo. Would def. recommend!
- Courtney H

3/4th Day with Captain Brad

We had an amazing time with Captain Brad today. We caught over a dozen fish and had tons of fun on the boat. The captain is very knowledgeable of the area and we were glad we got to enjoy our catch that night. Can’t wait to do another trip!
- Marc Cohen

Awesome day

1st time to visit FL, so we booked a 6 hr morning fishing trip. Went out, it was a fun day to fish. Overall we had a fun time and caught a lot of fish and released them. We will book again. The Munloon from Monroe, LA.
- Jim Munloon

Deep Sea fishing

I had a awesome day fishing on the waters of Marathon Beach Florida. He was great getting me on to Big Fish and showing me the way to catch then. I had a incredible day, many fish. When ever I get to Florida in the future I plan using him again.
- jsaldrich5

Capt. Brad is the best

We could not have asked for more. It was one of the best fishing days of my life. My son and I caught 69 fish. Capt. Brad was passionate, accommodating and knowledgeable. He is a great guy and I would use no one other than Capt. Brad, from this point forward, as a fishing guide in Marathon Florida.
- HoneyBadger1231

December Trip

Always want to catch Redfish and Sheep-head, finally did so. Capt Brad was awesome. We caught some big Redfish and lost some big fish. Brad is very passionate and wants you to catch fish.
- Jack S

Great Afternoon Trip

We booked a 6 hour afternoon trip with Captain Brad during our short Florida Spring Break Trip. (April 4, 2018) We had an absolute blast with Captain Brad. My wife and 10 year old son, both caught their personal bests on our trip. Little man boated a solid 10 pound Redfish, with Mom coming in a close second with a 9 pounder. Guessing we caught 20 in total for the afternoon. We will definitely be back!
- Scott Stephens


I would like to take the time to tell all father's and fisherman of the trip that they should take there son's or themselves on if only once. The central Florida fishing is the best if your looking for quality and quantity, it so good that my friend and I decided awhile back that we will make this a annual trip. Anyway I want to tell you of the greatest guide you will ever meet, Capt Brad Kayholm. Now I will say if you don't request him as your guide your experience may not be as good as mine, this guide are the best I have ever been around and are a lot of fun and have your interest at heart. I strongly urge you to call for the best trip you will ever have in your life and don't put it off. Thanks Rick Preston
- Rick Preston

Excellent trip

I booked this trip while visiting Orlando to break up the insanity of visiting the theme parks. My guide Capt Brad could not have been better. He was clearly a very experienced angler and had us on top of decent sized fish almost immediately. My only regret is not booking a full day trip! My one piece of advice if you’re looking to land a large number of fish is to go with the longer day! We were pulling in one fish after another.
- Alex k

PA Fish Finders

Our guide Brad had lots of information about the area we fished in and found us many small and large size fish to catch. Great morning of fishing. We even caught our first Snook fish ever. We will definitely call again on our next Florida trip to find more fish. Thanks again!
- cottonconstruction

Such a great time...

Capt Brad was awesome. I fish year round in NJ, and it was good to get a lesson from this guy. He is a master of his craft and had us laughing the entire time. I would recommend him to anyone.
- PopGuzman

Captain Brad is the Best!

- sprice7766

Great trip caught more fish and my personal best one

Capt Brent was great. Put us on a bass hot spot about 20 minutes from the ramp. Caught 30 + bass 3 to 6 # in 3 hours. Learned a lot from Capt Brad, you can believe what he tells you. Was on vacation and did a spontaneous fishing trip booked only two days in advanced. Highly recommend!

American Hero

My first time fishing in honor of Colonel (Retired) John C. Johnson, a genuine war hero who loves fishing. We were blessed with Captain Steve as our guide. He could not have made the nostalgic reunion any more special. Thank you!

Full day fishing with Charter Captain

Had a great time on the charter. Captain and his first mate were very helpful seeing it was my wife first time ever deep sea fishing. She is ready to go again which like music to my ears. Thanks for making it easy and so enjoyable. See you soon!
- Ricardo Z

What a great time!

- Steve Adams

3 year olds reaction priceless

Took a 4hr family fishing trip this morning inshore. Caught these two monster Redfish. My 8,5, and 3 year olds had a fantastic trip. Captain new his stuff, took us out and had us catching fish in the first few minutes. Would definitely recommend this charter if in the Marathon area.
- Robert Aholt

Fun time for sure!

The water, wind and fishing was so fantastic. Lots of fun and the fish we cooked that night was delicious. Recommend for sure.
- Joseph Lam


We booked 2 fishing trips... emailed with Lori months before the planned trip - she was super patient and super helpful. When we finally arrived the weather was not in our favor, we were in Orlando for a week and it was rain and thunderstorms every day! not ideal for fishing..... Lori and the Captains were amazing - both captains called us everyday with an update on the weather and did their best to re schedule the trips, the were very patient and very kind...... we ended up doing the trips - my husband was very pleased, caught many fish, Captain Brad was awesome, very knowledgeable, very friendly and very professional I highly recommend!!!!
- amalia v

Can't Wait to do it again!

When Tarpon fishing last year with these guys, just made my reservation for next May. Can't wait, it's so much fun...see everyone in Marathon!
