Capt Ron put us on fish on pretty much every spot and at least 4 of the sea bass were 4 lbs or more. My wife never fished before and he worked with her to make her feel comfortable and able to bring in some fish on her own. He was very friendly and knowledgable and would recommend him to others and would look to book him again either here or the Florida keys where he also charters.

I chartered Captain Ron for a full day’s fishing with my 12 year old son.  We had a great experience.  We saw lots of action from the beginning.  We first trolled for stripers and hooked a number of them as well as blues.  We then used live bait and caught a couple of nice stripers (one approximately 26 lbs).  We then bottomed fished for sea bass and porgies.  Instant action once we dropped our lines.  Captain Ron is a very knowledgeable fisherman in Montauk.  I will definitely charter him again.  Great experience for my son who is now ‘hooked’ on fishing…
