Capt Ron is amazing. Put us on a mess of flounder. Also caught grouper, sharks, a mess of weakfish and a downright angry, drag-ripping bonito. Very patient captain with respect to novices (ie my wife). New boat. Highly recommended. Thank you Capt Ron!!! We will be back!!

Captain Ron took me and my husband out for some great in-shore fishing. He knew the best spots to try, and kept putting us on some nice fish. Would definitely recommend Captain Ron as a fishing guide!

Captain Ron put us on some fish. It was a very fun and beautiful trip. My girlfriend wanted to catch a shark so he put us on some shark. Good guy. Can’t wait to go with him again.
