Capt. Ron’s Fishing Charters

Capt. Ron’s Fishing Charters runs by the motto “if it swims, we catch it”.  Offering both inshore and offshore charters in the waters off Montauk, NY, they have a variety of options to suit your needs. If you want a hands-on experience which will allow you to get as interactive as you want, you’ve come to the right place.

The well-named charter boat “Capt. Ron” is a 30’ True World offshore sportfishing boat with a walkaround layout, perfect for 360-degree fishability. Powered by a 315 HP engine, the boat cruises at a slick 20 knots, and it features a full range of marine electronics and safety equipment to ensure your trip is both productive and enjoyable.

Inside, there is a private bathroom, as well as a heated cabin with two bunk beds for relaxation. And while the deck is spacious enough for six people to fish, Capt. Ron prefers to limit his charters to four guests to ensure a personalized and enjoyable experience for everyone onboard.

Capt. Ron’s Fishing Charters specializes in fishing for Striped Bass with live bait and diamond jigs. But that’s not all: they can also provide offshore Cod trips. Here, you’ll drop your line over deep water wrecks and ledges, with the aim of coming home with some of the most delicious and tender fish you can find. Other potential species you can catch include Fluke, Porgy, Black Seabass, and Bluefish.

Whichever trip you decide on, the focus will be on making sure everyone has an enjoyable, hands-on experience. The crew will do everything they can to make sure you come home with some delicious fish for the table - and they will make sure that you have fun doing it, too.
