Ron grew up with a love for water and fishing. It did not matter if it was a mountain stream, private pond, freshwater lake or whitewater river he could always be found in or on one of them. The freshwater experiences over the years drove him to look for bigger and more extreme challenges. He was first introduced to saltwater offshore fishing in 1991. In the late 1990s, offshore saltwater fishing became an obsession. In 2003, Ron purchased his first offshore boat and has fished off the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina for years along with fishing travel excursions up and down the eastern seaboard from Cape Cod to Florida along with other fishing excursion destinations to include Hawaii, Costa Rica, and the US Virgin Islands. He has over 7000 hours offshore as an owner operator and many many more hours at sea on other vessels. Ron looks forward to sharing time with you in the blue.
