Fishing with Ron and Nina was like fishing with friends or family. Engaging, understanding, helpful at all times in every way necessary. This was especially important because it was my son's first fishing trip ever and I hadn't been fishing in 10 years. They ensured a great memory for both of us -- my son caught 5-6 fish and I've...

This review is long overdue. I have been fishing with Capt Ron on the BET 4 times over the last couple years. I keep coming back with my 12 yr son because they never cease to amaze us with their hospitality, patience, and knowledge. My son refuses to fish with anyone else! My son's first charter was with Capt Ron... More

Ron and Nina lead the way for my dad and I on an amazing adventure! I had never been out sea fishing before but their enthusiasm, experience and knowledge of fishing and of the sea encourages any first-timer to get out there and enjoy every second of it! Very accommodating! The Blue Eyed Traders were determined and ready and they... More

Friends who live in Key West suggested Captain Ron and Nina, immediately, when I asked of a good charter to take our family out for the day. Wow! Besides catching a ton of fish (some of which I've never heard of)... we had such a great time. Blue Eyed Charter made what we expected to be just a fishing trip... More

We had a great day and my son caught the biggest fish of his life. Captain Ron worked hard to make sure we caught lots of fish. The 50lb Amber Jack and my son's smile are testimony to our success.

Thanks for fishingwithron. He was a champ to fight that monster fish for so long! A 45 pound AJ on 20 pound spinning gear is a well done job! I am happy he caught it, and a surprise it was. Always fun to see family's fish together. Thanks for choosing us. More

Captain Ron and Nina were outstanding. We had a blast and caught lots of fish. They definitely know how to find the fish and are so much fun. If you're going to charter in Key West you need to use Blue Eyed Charters.

I have been on charterboats all over The world. This boat with this captain is very very good. We went out with medium to light gear, and Ron helped us to have a great day. The size of the boat is perfect, it is personal and intense. We fished with live bait, slowtrolled, speedjigging and bottomfishing. Nice rods - solid... More

Thanks for the review, and thanks for traveling so far to fish with us. When you said you came to KW to fish with us I thought ' this guys crazy' but I see it was worth the effort. The boys were so much fun to watch, I'm glad it was a good experience for you. Hope to see you... More
