I took my son out with Ron and Nina for his birthday with a couple other friends for his 26th birthday. We had an outstanding time though 3 of 4 of our party were fishing novices. Ron and Nina were very friendly from the get go and, by the way, funny as hell! From the beginning of the trip to the very end, they both worked their rear ends off, never stopping, to make sure we had a great fishing experience. We set out to catch dinner first and then wanted to try wreck fishing. We soon had a full cooler of large yellowtail, a couple nice mackerel and about 10 or so nice size triggerfish. And by the way we probably lost as many as we landed due to our inexperience, (which Ron tried to educate us about!). We then moved to a plane wreck where we had some huge bites, that unfortunately we lost (our fault, not Captain Ron or Admiral Nina's). They even gave us extra time which was appreciated. Overall, it was really a great time and we will be back.

Thank Dennis C

My husband and I had a great day fishing with Capt. Ron & Nina. They were very accommodating and even stayed out longer with us to make sure that we were able to catch a variety of fish. We would recommend this day to anyone wanting to have a great time while in Key West! We can't wait for our next trip!

Had a great time from the moment Capt Ron & Nina picked us up to the moment we got back. Ron includes you in the total fishing experience all day. As much or as little as you want. Came into this trip not knowing what to expect from prior fishing experiences with other guides. Capt Ron & Nina want you to have a great time.We felt comfortable and right at home from the beginning. He did everything possible to put us on fish, even when the conditions were stacked against us. Looking forward to our next trip.

Had a great day fishing with the family aboard Blue Eye Trader. Ron and Nina were both outstanding. We had several in our party that were not highly experienced anglers and Ron and Nina were very patient in giving them tips on how to improve their skills. Very accommodating with the plans for the day. We originally thought we would fish the reef and then snorkel for half day but the weather was rainy and the Atlantic was a little rough so we trashed that whole plan on the way out and headed for the gulf where it was calmer and we still had a great day fishing. Tremendous variety of fish caught including a big cobia that I'm about to go have cooked for dinner at the hogfish bar and grill. Just a stellar day.

Thanks for the 5 star review! If there was a button to push for clients you and your family would get a 6! I cant tell you how much fun we had fishing with you guys. You should be proud of those kids, like Nina said '' no whiners in that group'' Watching them stand out in the rain all day was amazing and they still wanted more! Thank you for treating us to a fun and productive day.

I got a little sea sick, they were extremely accommodating. Instead of giving up we just moved to calmer water and finished out the day with an AWSOME catch!!!
