There’s nothing better than fishing the rich Florida waters with an experienced and passionate captain at the helm. This is exactly what Reel Till U Feel Charters is all about!

Captain Mark Magni grew up in Tampa and has been fishing the prolific Tampa Bay for over 40 years now. He is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain, trained in First Aid and CPR certified. He owns and operates Reel ‘Till U Feel charters, offering half-day and 6-hour charters.

He operates the Sea Pro, a 19’ center console bay boat, powered by a single 115 HP Yamaha engine. The vessel is custom-built for the inshore experience and can accommodate parties of up to 3 fishermen.

As a lifelong resident of the Tampa area, Mark grew up exploring every nook and cranny of the local waters, as well as the surrounding areas. Not many anglers in town can say they share his knowledge of the fishing trends and tides, sometimes crucial for a successful fishing trip.

The captain will show you the most productive inshore, reef, flats, and backcountry fisheries and teach you his tried and true techniques for landing the coolest fish the area can offer. Your hit list will include Tarpon, Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Redfish, Trout, a variety of Sharks, and many other species depending on the season.

Regardless of your skill and experience level, you can be sure that Captain Magni is going to do everything he can to make sure you’re put in an optimal position to catch fish. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.

Everything needed for a productive trip will be supplied, including fishing equipment, bait (live and artificial), as well as water and a cooler with ice. Florida fishing licenses are required, and will also be covered by Captain Mark.

You’re free to bring along a snack or a preferred type of drink you may have. Other than that, just bring along your passion for fishing and you’re good to go.

My husband and I spent my birthday celebrating with a beautiful Florida day out on Tampa Bay with Captain Mike. It was our first experience with a charter and we were not disappointed.  Capt Mike knows when to hold’em and when to fold’em.  Moving often to ensure we had every opportunity to catch something, anything!!  From catfish to manta rays, a weird lizard fish,  trout and a really nice Spanish Mackerel.  We had a blast and plan to do it again!!!

In spite of very windy conditions the captain came through. We caught sea trout. I differently recommend reel till you feel for a light tackle experience

Thanks Ken, It was a very rough ride back in with that 20 knot winds. Hope you enjoyed your Trout dinner.

My grandson and I had a great day fishing with Capt Mark. We wanted to catch enough fish for a family fish fry party. Capt Mark said that Sea Bass was one of the best tasting fish that came of Tampa Bay. It is and everyone at the fish fry agreed. Thanks again Captain see you in February.
