We caught around 20 fish in just a couple hours, including a 5 lb peacock bass and a huge snakehead! Unbelievable! And, Ron is just a super nice and friendly guy, too. Definitely recommend him!
Jeanne C. with Ronald L. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Absolutely amazing crew and fishing! Traveled with our four kids and decided to take a fishing trip before we went on left for a cruise out of Miami.

Our trip today with JP was tons of fun. Great guy, good stories and he found us plenty of fish!
Michael R. with JP M. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
My 3 sons, ages 20 and 17, and I had a great trip with Captain Preston. The Sea Vee was big enough to manage the rough sea. We caught 6 mahi, a king, and a shark. We are from Colorado and love an adventure. Captain Preston knows what he is doing. Reeling in the fish was lots of fun. I would caution against taking youngsters or people with medical problems this time of year (November) because you must hang on with the big waves. Suzanne
