I took my son (11 yrs) and nephew (14 yrs) for their first saltwater fishing trip. My nephew's first fish was a 46lb amberjack. Ron and Nina did a great job telling/showing him the proper way to reel in the fish. We stopped at multiple fishing spots and caught; snowy grouper, yellow head grouper, golden tile, grey tile and mahi... More

We didn't just fish, we caught! A day with Captain Ron and Nina was a wonderful treat for our family. Not only did they make sure we were comfortable and having a great experience, they were also very patient and helped each of us become better at fishing. Our day ended with a cool down at gorgeous beach, and feeding... More

Captain Ron and Nina were extremely kind and very focused on making sure that my family of 6 had a fantastic day of fishing. They were also understanding of our lack of fishing knowledge and skill, and quickly helped us adapt new knowledge to help us reel in some very respectable fish. We ended the day with a quick jump...

Captain Ron and Nina were absolute pleasures to share our 3/4 day Charter with. We all caught a lot of delicious fish and ended our day at a nice quiet beach area to cool off and relax. Thank you both for another great Key West memory~

A hot, calm summer day in Key West is best spent offshore fishing with good friends... We caught our limit of yellow tail, a blackfin tuna and many more... We have fresh fish for months... Great job!

My wife and two daughters had an amazing fishing trip with Ron and Nina when we visited Key West last week. We spent most of our time fishing for Yellow Tail which kept the girls busy and entertained which was first and foremost. We finished the day jigging some wrecks for some heftier fish that will test your metal. Both... More

Captain Ron and Nina were AMAZING hosts. We wanted to catch some mahi during our trip. They knew exactly where to go and guided us as we reeled them in. The boat was clean, comfortable and perfect for a group of 5-6 travelers. After our ride, Captain Ron cleaned and filleted the fish and allowed us to even feed the... More
