Best fishing trip! We caught a ton of fish on May 16, and Ron cleaned everything before we left. I wish I'd done some pull ups to prepare! All day was nothing but smiles. If we weren't catching, we moved to a new spot. Ron and Nina know about everything in the sea, and are fun people to boot. If... More

Captain Ron is not simply a Fishing Captain. He's a brother in arms that will dive into the deepest and shallowest of seas to make sure your experience aboard Blue Eyed Fishing Charters will be the most memorable while in Key West. Whether you are fishing for snapper, grouper, tuna, sailfish, mahi mahi, Captain and his wife, Nina, are experts... More

Cpt Ron and 1st Mate Nina are truly masters of their craft. More than that they are gracious hosts on board their vessel. They are eminently knowledgeable about the fish, the water and pretty much everything else you can think of to ask. They go to great lengths to be accommodating to whatever it is you want to experience. My... More

My husband and I just spent our seventh full day charter on The Blue Eyed Trader. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Captain Ron and Nina put us right on the Red Grouper, Mahi, Black Fin Tuna and Amber Jack. They never disappoint. I can't wait for our next adventure on the water together. Truly top notch!

Captain Ron and Nina are such gracious hosts, very patient and loads of fun! I told them what I really wanted to catch, we went to a spot and within minutes FISH ON! Captain Ron is very helpful, knowledgeable and funny. Nina brings it all together as she navigates that big beautiful ocean and keeps us on those hot spots.... More

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.

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
