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.

Captain Ron was knowledgeable and friendly throughout the trip. He did all the work for us as far as baiting the hooks and letting us know what we caught, whether or not we should keep it, etc. which was great for novices such as us. Overall we had a great time and would recommend the experience to anyone who’s visiting the keys.

Our party of 4 had a great day of fishing with Captain Ron. He customized our trip to the group’s experience levels and made the day enjoyable for all. We had non-stop action catching our limit of mangrove snapper. He was hard working, personable and knowledgeable. And at the end of the day provided a recommendation for a restaurant to cook an excellent dinner of freshly caught snapper.

Thanks, we’ll be back.

Fished 3 days with Capt. Ron. Off shore, the reef, and back country. He is a very experienced and talented fishing captain. Great personality, incredibly knowledgeable, professional, serious, and would be perfect for novices to pro’s. Been fishing his whole life and really enjoys it. His prices are very fair.
