We just finished our fourth year of fishing with Capt Ron. It was once again a highlight of our trip and the reason my 9 year old wants to return to Key West year after year. Ron & Nina are amazing hosts beyond their ability to REALLY FISH. They know how to keep everyone engaged in a great day out... 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!!

What a great day of fishing! Captain Ron and Nina really know their fishing spots. We went out for 3/4 days on Blue Eyed Trader and got to experience catching Mutton Snapper, Yellow Tail Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi and even caught a few small sharks!

Did a full day with 5 guys during Memorial day weekend and had a great time. Captain Ron works hard to make sure you get the most out of the trip. Him and his wife Nina are fun to be around and showed us a great time. Would recommend to anyone going down to the Keys.

Thanks again for fishing with us, as always you guys make a fun trip. I'm sorry the wind was a pain this year but at least we got to fish some. That Pompano was a treat to see Jack catch!
