On our last day of fishing we did a half day trip with Captain Ron and had a fantastic time. We told him we didn’t want to spend all the time on a long run in the boat, and weren’t very interested in trout but wanted to wanted to catch #s. He politely explained that we we really could have our cake and eat it too and suggested an alternative that turned out great.

We went out to a wreck site, which was still a long run but kept us out of trout.
Once there, we chummed the water and fished a couple of kinds of rigs (on the bottom and then jigs) and caught a wide variety of fish. No huge monsters of the deep, but we caught a lot of fish and some good size ones that gave a nice fight. This included mackerel, lots of snappers, lady fish, etc. It was fun even though a squall line came through and put some wind/rain on us and was exactly what we wanted even if we didn’t know to suggest that option. After a bit he asked we wanted to throw lines for barracuda/shark but that we might not catch much of anything else.  We agreed since we were getting close to wrapping up and we ended up catching 2 large barracuda and one good sized lemon shark. It was a ton of fun catching and we enjoyed talking to him about fishing and the area while we were waiting with the lines out. We would definitely go out with Captain Ron again!!! It was a great trip.

Captain Ron was a very knowledgeable and took us right where we would catch alot of fish.  We had a fish on the first cast out. Husband caught many fish and two sharks. Ron also had a good sense of humor which made our trip more entertaining. Very good experience, husband wants to book with him again next time we get back down to south Florida.

Capt. Ron took my girlfriend and I out for an evening of shark fishing near Islamorada. We couldn’t have had a better time. Capt. Ron made waiting for a bite enjoyable and comfortable for both of us. Thanks again Ron for an intense night!

My girlfriend and I just fished with Captain Ron this past Sunday, 11-12-17.  We had a great half day trip.  Ron kept us busy the whole day, catching a variety of fish, both of us were left smiling.  He was very patient with my girlfriend who doesn’t have much experience, explaining little things to her with funny anecdotes.  He’s a great guy—personable, funny, entertaining.  He really did a good job putting together a trip for 2 different types of anglers on the same boat—which is a really nice, clean Mako bay boat that rides smooth and can really cruise.  Now I have to hear her brag about how she caught a shark and I didn’t!  Thanks, Captain Ron!

My son (17) and I had a great day on the water with Captain Ron. He worked had to get us on fish. While he thought it was a slow day, we were really pleased with the action. Lots of sea trout, snapper and other fish. Captain Ron was knowledgeable and friendly—we highly recommend him.

As good as he is, the first day he could not make the fish bite.
The second day he commented we were going to stay out until we caught fish and we did.
Ron is a super guy and knows his stuff.  In spite of not feeling well he was there and was extremely professional.  Would recommend him to anyone, anytime.
Thanks Ron

Ron knows his stuff and is a pleasant, no-nonsense fishing companion and guide.  I caught four trout 14-18” and 15 lady fish 12-20” (losing as many more on jumps), all on flies, in windy conditions following storms the day before (which necessitated postponing for a day).  Couldn’t have asked for more under the conditions.

We had amazing time together with Capt. Ron Brack of Pirate For Hire Charters in Islamorada on 3rd July 2016. I’m definitely glad to made the choice with Capt. Ron. He’s very kind and experienced Capt. / Fisherman. Not only a perfect Fisherman but also a great instructor. He showed us the necessary techniques for all kind of fishing for that day we could catch. We got lots of and many types of fish. Was great pleasure and great joy. It worth the time and the money we spend. From the first minute till the last, he sailed and pin pointed all the spots necessary and found the fish whatever we asked to catch. Here by; I would like to thank him and his company one more time for the quality time we had and the great joy. Thank you Capt. Keep on catching and hope to meet you again.
