Just retuned from our trip with Captain Ruben and it was excellent. Ruben went the extra mile all morning to make sure my wife and kids all had a great experience. Ruben was a wonderful guide and made sure we were always set with bait and tips for how to catch the big fish. Of all the captains I have had, he was far and away the most patient and informative.

Captain was knowledgeable and respectful. He displayed a great deal of patience with the boys and us. It was as if we had known him for many years. I look forward to fishing with him again.
