Fished w/Reuben mid May, during Tarpon season. As a busy guide in the North East (which I didn't tell him), I have a fair idea of what a good guide should bring to the table. Rueben accommodated us on short notice (Mother's Day), knowing nothing about who we were or what we were looking for, and managed to create a really nice experience for us. I wasn't particular focused on Tarpon fishing, but that is what most people are looking for, so that is what he had planned. We were throwing soft plastics on relatively light spinning gear for the first half of the trip, and Reuben found fish for us (blind, as most of his contacts were off the water that day). Cast to MANY rolling fish in the 60 - 80 lb class ... SO cool to see. No takers on the Hogys, so we posted up in a channel that was flowing pretty good, and had lots of fish rolling. Had live baits out, and chumming. I had a blast catching the large mangrove snapper that found our chum. Didn't hook a tarpon, but we were in fish the whole time, and had a very enjoyable morning. I would book w/Reuben again if I made it down that way!

Captain Ruben took us out today in Key Largo where I hooked my first tarpon!! That fish was no joke!! Fought the fish for about an hour and was guided properly until the fight was over! Ended up being about 5 close to 6 feet and about 120 Lbs!! Captain Ruben made it easy on us! Great guy! If you're looking for a very layed back and cool guide who knows what he's doing, I would recommend Captain Ruben!! Thank you again!

I've done a lot of fishing charters and Capt. Ruben is certainly one of the best! Capt. Ruben put me right on top of fish from the start hooking up on a jack and a grouper at the beginning of the trip. We were targeting tarpon on a 4 hour trip and about 3 hours in we hooked up on a massive 4 foot plus fish. After I lost the fish Capt. Ruben wanted me to hook up on another one so we stayed out a little later than 4 hours to give me a chance to hook a second one - which we did! Capt. Ruben really knows his stuff and has a great personality which makes fishing even more fun. Great experience!
