One Man's Dream
Captain Ron is a native New Yorker who first discovered Lake Okeechobee in 1976.
In 1985 Ron’s Guide Service opened. Captain Ron’s first venture was bass fishing. He began with one boat and a few rods and reels. Okeechobee townsfolk were surprised at this “city slickers” fishing skills and Ron began receiving media attention from newspaper publications throughout the state. Once Ron proved himself to the locals he began advertising in magazines and sending out mailings. Business began growing and by 1990 Ron’s Guide Service dominated Lake Okeechobee.

Our Brand Promise
Being from New York—Ron approaches his business with a street smart and professional attitude.
Ron would hear countless stories about guides leaving folks stranded in the backwoods of Okeechobee or taking advantage of them with “special rates”. We personally screen our guides and hunting properties to ensure the highest credibility. If any problems arise during your experience, we promise to make things right.
