Was disappointed with the results but.. that’s fishing. Capt Ron tried for 5 hrs. Caught 9 Trout, only 2 keepers. Was picked up and returned to the motel and had the fish filleted for me. Boat and gear were in good shape. Better luck next time I hope.

Capt. Ron provided a great trip flats fishing the tidal creeks north and east of the St. Johns river in Jacksonville.  He is very experienced and has intimate knowledge of the tidal creeks and tide conditions.  his 18’ flats skiff was well suited and equipped for the fishing we did.  I had some experience casting but was not very good at accuracy or distance.  Capt. Ron patiently worked with me and taught me a better way to cast and helped me figure out some bad habits that needed correcting in order to make casting work.  On top of all that he put me on fish and I caught 12 red fish, a black drum, and 2 sea trout.  Great day, Great Captain.  Highly recommend

Captain Ron is very knowledgeable and will do what he can to get you on the fish. May haven’t been biting as much as we wanted but there is always next time. Overall definitely a good experience and would definitely recommend…

First time out, was fun.  However, the boat was little small.

I use a lot of guides in year and the most important thing is they are on time, have good equipment and get you on fish.  The rest is up to you.  Capt. Ron did all those things.  Even though the tide and weather condition were not ideal, he got me on fish right away.  This is what separates a captain that is just going through the motions and one who take pride in fishing experience he provides. And the bonus is he is a very personable guy.  Not the all-important statistics.  He told me he was sorry I had such a lousy day.  I landed 14-16 reds and lost another 4-5.  I’d say that’s a pretty good day in my book.  Thanks Capt. for a fun day and I will use you again when I’m in the area.

The BEST Fishing I have ever done…By far Capt Ron showed us that there are truely some great guides out there willing to show us their best fishing holes. It was so much fun and we caught so many Red Fish my arms are still hurting. I’m talking dozens of reds and trout. I wish i could have kept the 29 inch ones…LOL   Thank You to Ron…I will return…
