Blue Ridge Runner

Take advantage of the Gulf Stream’s immense impact on fishing with Blue Ridge Runner. As you can guess by the name, they’ll take you to the Atlantic’s deepest ridge, and further afield, in search of serious big game fish. Based out of Stuart, FL, Captain Ross Tomney is a local guide with a lifetime of fishing experience behind him. He loves the thrill of taking his catch home at the end of the day, and can’t wait to give you the same rush.

Expect the full treatment aboard a luxury 55’ Ocean Yachts offshore sportfishing boat. Built with comfort, style, and fishing in mind, she has everything you need for a fantastic day on the water. There’s plenty of seating in the air-conditioned cabin, as well as outside and on the flybridge. She has 2 toilets, a kitchen, and TV for your entertainment. Her credentials as a fishing vessel are never in doubt, featuring downriggers, outriggers, and a fighting chair.

Fish anywhere from the Treasure Coast to the Keys and Bahamas. These prolific waters will see you execute a range of techniques, from trolling to deep dropping, bottom fishing, and jigging. From delicious Mahi Mahi and Tuna to take home, to releasing a Palm Beach Sailfish that will glow as you get it boatside. Whatever you target, you’re in for a treat. Capt. Ross specializes in Swordfish, so get on the extended full day trip to hunt this beauty.

Throughout your trip, the captain or his first mate will help you with any questions you have. They promise to give you every assistance in reeling in some huge fish. No matter if it’s your first or 1,000th time fishing, you’ll be well looked after. There will be some light snacks and water on board, but you should bring your own lunch and any other drinks and keep them in the onboard icebox. Settle in for an unforgettable day with Blue Ridge Runner.

A local to the area, Captain Ross has been fishing his whole life. He just loves spending time on the water and gets a thrill out of bringing fish home for dinner. In 2014, he decided to take the leap and turn his passion into a profession and has run charters ever since. His favored fish to target is billfish and, if you pick a specialized trip with him, you're in for a masterclass.
