Captain Ken Hejducek, Captain and Owner of My Joyce III

Montauk Shark Tournament

Captain Ken Hejducek will give one hundred and ten percent to ensure your day on the water in Montauk is both productive and memorable. As a United States Coast Guard Licensed professional Captain Kenny’s number one priority is your safety and comfort. Fishing became a love of Kenny’s when he was a small child of five fishing with his Dad and both Grandfathers  in City Island, Jamaica Bay and the Rockaways.   With over 40 years of fishing experience in Long Islands local and offshore waters Capt. Ken is an experienced angler in all areas of fishing catching all species from Striped Bass, Fluke, Sea Bass, Porgy, and Blackfish to Tuna and Shark. After many years of fishing in Montauk on his boat, with the Viking Fleet and other friends Kenny finally moved to Montauk full time.


The My Joyce III is available to be chartered for all Shark Tournaments as well as Tuna Fishing in the Canyon’s. Over the years Kenny has won many tournaments including the 2013 Star Island Shark Tournament, The Hudson Anglers Tournament in 2010 and the Woodcliff NY Shark Tournament in 2008. For many years Capt. Ken fished for Giant Tuna up on the Cape but now prefers to stay at home in Montauk for the Fall Striped Bass run.


For Kenny chartering is a passion and each trip brings a new opportunity to make memories and share his love of fishing and Montauk with the people on the boat.  . You can call Captain Ken anytime and he will customize a trip for you. Together with his first mate Capt. Ken will go above and beyond to show you a great day, catch plenty of fish and have a bunch of laughs. This is what keeps customers coming back year after year.
