Reel Good Times sets off from Spring Hill, Florida, with the inshore and nearshore as its Oyster – or should that be Scallop? As well as nearshore and inshore fishing trips, you can also hunt for Scallops in the water with Captain Brennan Taylor. As a passionate angler, he decided to complement his job as a firefighter with running fishing charters, so that he can share his passion with others.

Your trip will take place aboard a 22’ Ranger bay boat, built in 2018. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, you’ll be at sea in no time. With the assistance of a wireless trolling motor, you’ll easily be able to navigate the skinny waters and creep up on the spooky fish beneath you, giving you maximum chance of hooking a prized catch. Offering inshore, offshore, wreck, reef, backcountry, and flats fishing, there’s something for everybody on board.

With reels, rods, lures, live bait, and trolling equipment provided, it’s up to you whether you’d like to troll, jig, spin, or bottom fish. Inshore, you’ll be targeting delicious table fish like Gag Grouper, Pompano, or excellent game fish like Snook or Tarpon when in season. Along the reefs, you may have to put up a fight against Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, or tasty Sheepshead.

Capt. Brennan will clean and fillet your catch so that you can fill your stomach after a long day at sea. With such a range of fishing options and trips available, Reel Good Times is sure to provide an unforgettable experience whatever you crave – you can even agree on a different departure time, if you require! So come on, take advantage of these rich waters and book now.
