Captain Ron Howell - HydraSport 21’

77522 Overseas Hwy
Islamorada FL, United States

Hello fellow anglers, I am Captain Ron Howell and I am 56 years old and I have been fishing throughout Florida my entire life. I have been fishing professionally as a recreational fishing Captain for over 35 years in South Florida waters. I am a native of South Florida and have fished such hot spots as Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and the Everglades. I currently fish the waters of Flamingo and Islamorada and know these fishing grounds well.  

I currently hold a 100 ton masters captains license and I am currently on my 6 issuance. I love to fish regional and local tournaments and I have been fortunate enough to win several tournaments that include names like the Redbone Tournament, the Super Fly Tourney, and the Take Stock in Children Tournament which I am particularly proud to win and be a part of.

When I am guiding I provide a completely friendly fishing atmosphere for every customer and especially for families and children. I believe when a child has a good fishing experience on his or hers first trip it can go a long way in molding them into a future angler which is a great and clean activity for any child. Fishing teaches patience, sportsmanship, and conservation among other things plus it is a ton of fun and I love nothing more than to see the smiles on a kid’s face when they catch a fish.

Picked up bait quickly and Capt. Ron got our youngest member(9) to get involved with loading bait box. this got her in the mood for fun time. The first fishing stop provided all of us with plenty of fish. Some keepers for dinner but lots of hits and catches. All three of us caught fish and had a great fun trip. Capt. Ron was polite and helped all of us to have a good trip. Many thanks to Capt. Ron.
