Reef Relief Charters invites you to hop on for an exciting fishing trip out of Saint Petersburg, Florida. This is a father and son operation run by Captains Richard and David Kleinhans. Both of them are passionate anglers and have been fishing in the Gulf for over two decades now.

Their boat is a 25’ Parker that’s powered by a single 300 HP Yamaha engine. It’s outfitted with a private head, which comes very useful on longer trips. Other than that, expect a full array of navigation electronics, a livewell for bait, and an ice box to store your catch in. With enough room for up to 6 anglers, you can bring the whole family along for the ride!

Captains Rich and Dave specialize in offshore fishing and what better place for that than the Gulf of Mexico. Those interested in sportfishing will have their hands full with Kingfish, Tuna, Cobia, Sharks and more besides. If you’d prefer to go after some bottom feeders instead, you’re in luck. From Flounder to a number of different Grouper and Snapper, the reefs are teeming with delicious fish. And the captains will make sure to clean your catch in the end.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are all included in the price of any given trip. Snorkeling gear can be made available upon request. Just make sure to pack your favorite pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined. All that’s left then is to get your game face on and come aboard!
