It’s a widely known fact that a parent is a child’s greatest influence, painting broad strokes that shape a child’s future. Captain Kenneth Brown is no exception, practically growing up on a charter boat skippered by his father and avid painter, Billy Brown. He would spend 10 summers as his father’s first mate, garnering solid lessons of the sea, fishing, and the importance of the waterman’s impact on the livelihood of Outer Banks. During his college years, Captain Kenneth wanted to try his hand at Gulf Stream fishing, serving as first mate for Outer Banks favorite son Omie Tillet, as well as others, learning the charter business from some of the masters. He proudly sails out each morning alongside his mentors and touts the teamwork between all of the vessels as one of the many keys to his success. Captain Kenneth has become a respected captain in his own right and takes great pride in giving his anglers the opportunity for a most productive yet memorable experience. With so many of his groups returning year after year to fish with Captain Kenneth, his available days tend to book quickly. Whether you aim to collect a few billfish flags, put meat in the box, or a trophy on the wall, Captain Kenneth and the crew of the “Trophy Hunter” will work hard to help you achieve your goals for the day.
