Captain Ron and Nina are fantastic.. Went out with my good friend Jason and he has a lot more fishing experience than me.. Ron and Nina know how to maximize everyone's trip and good time regardless of your experience level. They know how to navigate the gorgeous Key West waters very well too. We had a bout with weather the day we went out but still absolutely managed to have a blast, catch some fish, and thoroughly enjoy the day. Good times. I highly recommend booking a day with Blue Eyed Trader. You'll be glad you did. 🐠🐟🐡 - John K

We scheduled a family fishing trip over the Holidays. Capt. Ron and his wife wife Nina greeted us the morning of the trip with smiles. The weather was not as cooperative as we would have liked, it was windy. Capt Ron took us to a secluded spot to fish. We had bites but not as many as they would have liked so they took us to another spot. We were more successful. We caught grouper, snapper, mackerel, a shark and a few others I don’t remember. We caught enough for a good meal for us and a good meal for Capt Ron and Nina. Both worked hard keeping our hooks filled with bait. Everyone caught fish and we had a great time. I highly recommend Capt Ron and Nina.

Thanks for choosing Blue eyed trader to charter fish.We work hard to keep the family happy. Some days Mother Nature deals is a bad day so we have to make the best of it. Hope you return so we can fish offshore for Mahi Mahi. Thanks for the review.

We stumbled across Blue Eyed Trader on TripAdvisor and we are so happy we did! Our family went to Key West over the Christmas holidays and we hooked up with Ron and Nina on our 2nd last day we were there. All I can say is we wish we booked 2 days out on the water with them instead of just one! From start to finish the trip was so fun and an experience we will never forget! Ron has an awesome personality and has a way of making you feel like you’ve known him for years. He makes you feel comfortable, tells you hilarious stories, a great teacher and is even super patient with teaching “high maintenance” people like one of our passengers. Haha! Nina is also very knowledgeable and helpful in teaching and coaching us until we got the hang of it. Ron was kind of bummed as he said that it was a “slow day”. A slow day for him was not a slow day for us. We were pulling in fish left, right and centred and having the best time doing it! We caught a bunch of sharks, a bunch of different kinds of grouper, yellow tail etc. All of which was exciting for us as we’re from Canada and none of us had ever caught anything like that before! At points during the trip some of us were seeing sick from the big waves rolling in. Ron was quick to accommodate and took us to another location where the waves weren’t as bad but the fishing was still awesome and super active. After 6 hours, we ventured back inland and Ron cleaned up all of our fish to take with us and recommended some places that would cook it up for us. We went right away and had lunch with our fresh fish and we all agreed it was the best fish we’ve ever had! We can’t say enough good things about Captain Ron, his wife Nina and our whole experience with Blue Eyed Trader Charters! If you’re headed to Key West and want a fun, active day on the water, Ron is your guy! We can’t wait to go back to Key West and get back on the boat with Ron…Not only for our entertainment…but for yours too! “Get That Away From Me!!!!!” ;)

Thank you for being so honest!!! Lol. Yes we really care about your experience with us. Nina and I have done this for a lot of years and it still important that we all have fun. Get that away from me was funny as hell. Little did she know she had fish on her all day! Great day great people and really great fishing. See you again. Ron and Nina.

We've taken a handful of fishing charters and this has been our favorite. Ron and his wife Nina were amazing. Friendly, outgoing and talkative. We were never bored. Ron was upset because he called it a slow day. We caught more fish with Ron than on any of our other charters. Plus hooked a few sharks which we had never done before. Only regret is that we had to cancel our second outing due to weather. If we visit the keys we will definitely make a trip to key West to fish with Blue Eyed Trader.

Ron and Nina are absolutely out of third world. Top of the line boat and some of the finest and wisest fishing I've ever encountered.
