Screaming Reelz Fishing Adventures

Whether you’re looking for an intense offshore battle or a relaxing day of inshore fishing, Screaming Reelz Fishing Adventures will cater your trip to your preferences and skill level. Captain Matt Parkhurst specializes in deep sea trolling as well as bottom fishing and has spent most of the last few years studying various species and locations in order to provide a premium charter service off the Gulf Coast.

His 22’ Sea Hunt center console is a vessel straight out of an angler’s dream! She was built in 2013 and outfitted with state-of-the-art navigation, a live bait tank, and safety gear to ensure a productive and safe trip. She also comes with top-quality speakers so you can listen to your favorite tunes while you fish.

Capt. Matt takes up to 5 guests per trip and everyone can fish comfortably at the same time with plenty of room on the deck to move around. He has multiple coolers as well, so you don’t have to worry about lugging around your own. You’ll also be provided with the finest Penn and Shimano fishing gear on the market.

Full-day excursions will take you up to 30–40 miles offshore where you’ll have a chance to test your skills against some of the toughest fish in the game. You’ll have a chance to battle predator Sharks, Barracuda, Tuna, Amberjack and Red Snapper.

On half-day trips, you’ll stay within 15 miles of shore to bottom fish for various Grouper species, like Goliath, Gag, and Red Grouper. You can also choose to fish inshore and have a blast while catching a variety of fish species like Red Drum, Sheepshead, Snook, Tarpon and many more!

No matter which trip you choose, Capt. Matt and his professional crew will take great care of you. Your fishing license is covered, and you can also have your catch cleaned and filleted.

Just show up 10 minutes before departure, bring snacks and drinks, and the rest will be taken care of. Click that “Instant Book” button at the top and get ready for some “Screaming Reelz Fishing Adventures” with Capt. Matt!
