Reel Strung Out Fishing Charters

Reel Strung Out Fishing Charters offers a variety of adventures that will make you fall in love with fishing. The charter is owned and operated by Captain TJ Belmonte, a local captain who’s been fishing the Atlantic side of Florida his whole life. He knows these waters like the back of his hand and he’ll be able to take you to the best and most productive spots along the coast.

You’ll be fishing aboard an 18’ Bossman center console, powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine. The vessel can take up to 4 anglers and comes with top-notch electronics, tackle, and safety equipment. This boat was made for shallow waters, with a flat surface and non-slippery Sea Dek padding added for extra comfort. The boat also features a raised platform and a wireless trolling motor, making it advantageous to lurk for fish.

Captain TJ caters his trips to all skill levels. If you’re a beginner, he’ll show you how to look and cast for fish, as well as how to reel ‘em in. You’ll primarily be targeting Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout, but you can also catch a variety of other fish, such as Tarpon, Black Drum, and Sheepshead.

Capt. TJ offers a variety of trips, depending on your preferences. From fishing the flats, sight casting in potholes, to fishing docks and bridges – you’ll have the opportunity to mix it up. He also offers Shark fishing trips which is an extremely fun option for families with kids.

Top-quality rods and reels are included in the price, as well as your fishing license. Just be sure to bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera to make each moment last a lifetime. Capt. TJ provides beverages on board, but feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks.
