My family and friends had a great time on the fishing trip the day after Thanksgiving. I unfortunately got sick several times because it was so rough [and I may have over-celebrated my birthday the night before], but Ron and Nina were so accomodating. He has a great sense of humor, hence I was dubbed "Pukey". They make a great... More

My three brothers and I booked a trip a week out. The day before, Capt. Ron warned us it was pretty "sporty" as he called it -- 20 knot winds -- and asked us if we still wanted to go. We only had that one day, so what the hell. Still, we thought his dedication to our enjoyment rather than... More
