Captain Ron made it happen for us again. Even though the wind was blowing at 25 mph, he put us on a reef in shallower (and calmer) water and we slayed the snapper and grouper. Lots of (snapper) fillets to bring back home. Great trip as always.

Captain Ron and First Mate Nina knew great places to fish and we highly recommend their business. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about the areas they chose to take our group fishing. Amazing experience and a great time!

Second time aboard the Blue Eyed Trader, and we had a great time!! Weather started out a little rough, seems mother nature was having a slight hissy fit. But Captain Ron got us to a nice calm spot and we started fishing. Once the ocean calmed down, we checked out another spot and really started catching the fish! Best part... More

We went fishing for the first time with Captain Ron 2 years ago. So, when we planned our trip to Key West this year, we definitely wanted to go back out with him. The water was a bit rough the day we went out, but that didn't stop Captain Ron from finding some good spots to catch fish. And he... More

We went out with Captain Ron for a second trip and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The seas were a little rough but that didn't stop Ron from finding a good smooth area to catchy some nice fish. He knows where to find them and takes good care of his customers.

My wife and I did a 3/4 day with Captain Ron and NIna and they were fantastic. We caught a ton of smaller keeper fish (yellow tail, etc.) but the topper was the large Amberjacks we caught at the end of the day. My wife landed a 25 pounder and mine was 65 pounds estimated.
