Ron and Mina(sp) are awesome! We went out with our two teens daughters. We had a few seasick and had to adjust our fishing location, but they were great and found us a nice relaxing place to fish. We caught some great yellow snapper, shark and a few others. Enough snapper to make awesome fish tacos when we returned for... More

Thanks for the review and fishing with us. I hate when people get sick cause it's so great off shore but inshore can be fun too. Glad we were able to save the day and make the girls happy. Thanks for the fun day. More

Spent a beautiful day at sea with Ron and Nina. They took care of our every need. I highly recommend this trip. Snorkeling was amazing even better than Bahamas.

I'm glad you two had a good time on the blue eyed trader. Key west is a great place and needs to be seen from the water. Nina and I love to take care of our people and show how awesome the ocean can be. Please come see us again. Thanks. More

Ron and Nina are smart, friendly and safe! I booked a trip with my wife and my daughter and her BF (17 years old). The docking facilities/marina was clean and had a well stocked store for supplies. The boat was well laid out and took the seas very well. Every place we fished we caught a fish on first cast!... More

Had a great time aboard the Blue Eyed Trader for a 6 hour charter. We had an absolutely perfect day out on the water! Although we did not get to fish with Ron & Nina this trip, Captain Josh did a fantastic job! Our group of 5 had a great time (even the 2 that were a little seasick). Captain... More

Not my first time out with Ron and Nina and it was a blast as always. Great fishing, good fun and beautiful weather. They both know exactly where to be and when to be there in regards to the boat and the fish. Highly recommend.

We had a great day with Capt. Ron and Nina. And they put us on a lot of fish, including a shark! I would definitely recommend them.

Our fishing trip with Ron and Nina was awesome. We caught at least 20 fish during a half day trip (including 3 in the first few minutes). They are very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great time and will definitely go fishing with them again.

Awesome time; money well spent. Ron and his wife were very nice, easy to talk to, and made our experience the best it could be. Would recommend Ron to anyone fishing in/near Key West Travis Gora, MN

Thanks for reviewing us its what keeps us fishing. I know it seems like a lot of money to fish but running a charter boat is costly,I'm glad you thought it was worth the money. Please come back for another day on the Blue eyed trader. More

Ron and Nina are amazing! They really know how to fish and where to go. The boat and equipment are top notch. No sooner did we get three lines in the water than we had three hits with nice size yellow-tailed snappers. Ron said that he wanted to catch fish more than we did. He was also helping to advise...
