Cast N Reel Fishing Charters Of Crystal River

Inshore fishing has a wonderful feature of being both relaxing and incredibly thrilling! Join Captain Mark Reeves as he takes you on an unforgettable fishing adventure in the beautiful waters of Crystal River.

Climb aboard his 24’ Carolina Skiff, built in 2018 – she still has that new boat smell. Her design allows for up to 4 anglers to fish at the same time, in comfort, without bumping elbows. Don’t worry about travel times, as her 150 HP Yamaha outboard engine and sleek hull design allow her to speed along at a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots.

Capt. Mark will take you fishing all around Crystal River. On his trips, you can head off into the inshore waters and battle Bull Redfish or head into the deep blue sea, where you’ll bottom fish for tasty Red Snapper. For anglers who want to flex their muscles, the Cobia will prove a worthy opponent. A flybridge will help you spot them as well as other top-lurking species. You can also target Spotted Seatrout, Goliath Grouper, Tripletail, and whatever else you run into!

Kids are more than welcome with Cast N Reel Fishing Charters, but the minimum age is 5 and above. The captain can provide snorkeling equipment for extra fun when going scalloping, but customers should contact him in advance so he can get it ready.

Capt. Mark also offers pickup services from local motels, if he can reach it with his boat. Head straight from your room to reel-screaming action! Customers should bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to take pictures of their trophy catch.

So book a trip with Cast N Reel Fishing Charters and get set for a fun fishing experience, for both the avid angler and the fun-loving family!
