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

This review is seriously past due as we had our trip in August. I can't say enough about our experience with Captain Ron in Key West. We initially reserved our trip in March. I was worried at first the reservation might be forgotten given it was so far ahead, but Ron is on top of his game. He had everything... More

This is the BEST fishing charter in Key West! Ron and Nina know how to fish and they take care of every detail! Boat was clean and comfy! If you have never fished they guide you along! Caught lots of fish to eat, which Ron gladly cleaned! This was the highlight of our trip and our 9 year old son... More

Captain Ron and Nina are fantastic. I learned more in a days fishing than in the last year. They are willing to discuss what and what is not working. We were able to catch fish all day. There experience allowed us to fish for many types of fish. Thanks so much and look forward to the next time.

What do you get when you cross a passionate New England fisherman with sunshine, salt water, and the best partner a boat captain could ask for? Ron and Nina do the work of three and love every minute of it. Ron wants you to catch fish and makes sure you do. Nina is a true gem and these two are... More

Captain Ron & Nina's vast experience put you on the fish and their guidance and encouragement put the fish on the boat. Ron's passion for fishing is obvious from the moment you step on the boat. Nina is kind and welcoming and makes you feel at home on their clean and fully equipped vessel. I would strongly recommend these fine... More

From the moment we stepped on the boat the captain and his wife made us feel like friends, not like clients. The boat is also nicer than most other charters in key west for the price. The best part was Ron knows how to put you on the fish your after and get them in the boat. I would book... More
