A fun day!

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

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...

Captain Ron and his mate are awesome! If you want the best fishing experience in Key West, a day on the Blue Eyed Trader is it. The boat and gear are first rate. The wealth of knowledge and experience is priceless. On our last trip we boated Cobia, Dolphin fish, Amberjack, Blackfin Tuna and snapper. Even the fishing for bait... More

From the moment we stepped on the boat with Ron and Nina they treated us like family. A week before our trip, my 10 year old son ended up in a full leg cast and we thought the charter would have to be cancelled. When my husband spoke with Ron he was more than willing to try to make it... More

We thank you for the nice review. I just could't let you cancel for a broken leg, knew we could make it work. The boys were just awesome and that's why we love family fishing. Catching the biggest fish ever is also a great feeling for me as a captain. Its people like you that make charter fishing a pleasure.... More

Blue Eyed Trader Charters out of Key West will put you on the fish! Capt Ron LaDuc and his wife Nina put us on so many different fish in our two days I couldn't get over it.
