Captain Jay Get Reelin'

Captain Jay Get Reelin’ Fishing Charters specializes in family-friendly adventures in calm waters out of Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island, Florida. If you are looking for a knowledgeable guide who could put you on top of the hottest bite without having to go too far out, look no further. He has even been featured on the ‘brag board’ of the ‘Coastal Angler’ magazine.

Capt. Jay will put his talent to work for you. He will guide you through the basics before you make your first cast and will assist you throughout the adventure. Capt. Jay caters to anglers of all skill levels and enjoys fishing with complete beginners and kids. Younger anglers are especially welcome aboard!

Capt. Jay will greet you with a warm welcome onboard his 21’ Sea Ox center console. This spacious boat can comfortably hold up to 4 anglers. There is a single 150 HP Yamaha outboard engine, an ice box for the catch, a GPS, a fish finder to save your time while searching for fish, and a live well loaded with bait.

Captain Jay Get Reelin’ Fishing Charters will take you fishing the inshore and backcountry waters for anything that is in season and biting. During the warmer months, you can get your hands on various types of Sharks. And if you don’t feel like battling monsters, you can target Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Jack Crevalle.

All trips come with the use of custom quality gear, tackle, bait, licenses, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. You will need to bring your own snacks and drinks.
