Ramon's been around the water his whole life. He started off as a sailor at 18 years old and by the time he was 25, he was already the captain of Lori III. He perfected various fishing techniques such as trolling and fishing with a variety of bait and lures. The favorite part of his job is providing a great service and making sure the customers always have a great experience, even when the fish is not biting.
