We had a fabulous time with Captain Ron and Nina. They kept our three teenagers entertained, taught us how to ocean fish, and let us snorkel on the beautiful water. Highly recommended.

It's been a couple of years since I chartered with the Blue Eyed Trader and every time it gets better. Captain Ron and Nina are expert fisherman (and fisherwoman, Nina you're awesome.) We headed out late morning and were on the fish within five minutes of anchoring and chumming. SNAPPERS GALORE! After we approached our limit, we tried another place... More

We have fished with Captain Ron several times and we return every year to Key West just to fishing with Ron and Nina. Captain Ron will make absolutely sure you catch fish and have fun doing it. Young or old you will LOVE fishing with captain Ron.

We had a great day on the water yesterday with Captain Ron and Nina. We caught several small dolphin before landing an awesome 25 pounder!! Our luck continued as my son brought in an impressive black grouper and our friend landed a beautiful amberjack. Thanks so much for such a memorable day!!
