 Amazing time
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!!!

 Captain Ron is awesome
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!

 Bull Red Madness + Some !!!!
I have traveled all across the south saltwater fishing and Captain Ron treated me with one of the best near shore charters I have ever been on. Not often do you go out and hook into a big bull red on every cast we made!

 Excellent trip with Captain Ron!
