Reaper Fishing Charters specializes in deep sea fishing – giving anglers the opportunity to explore offshore reefs and wrecks, as well as the blue waters of the Gulf Stream. Capt Zachery Dillon tailors his trips based on the customers’ preferences and welcomes all ages and skill levels aboard.

Your boat for the day is a spacious 30’ Sailfish center console. You’ll zip away to the fishing grounds while being propelled by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. You’ll use top-of-the-line navigational electronics to target your species and bottom fish over reefs and wrecks.

The boat also comes with outriggers and downriggers for trolling pelagic fish and a livewell to keep your bait fresh between catches. She’s the ideal vessel for family fishing trips as well, outfitted with a toilet, plenty of dry storage, and ample space to accommodate up to 5 guests.

You’ll hit the bottom structures to fish for Grouper and Snapper species or go out further and troll for Blackfin Tuna. You can also hit the Gulf Stream and hunt for pelagic species such as Mahi Mahi and Sailfish. Other potential targets include Kingfish, Wahoo, Amberjack, and Cobia.

You’ll be provided with top-quality custom rods and Shimano reels. Your captain will also offer to clean and fillet whatever fish you keep so you can enjoy the fresh catch-of-the-day. Your fishing license is also covered, so no need to purchase one on your own.

All you need to bring is sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and Dramamine if you think you might get seasick. Feel free to bring your own food and drinks and keep them in the captain’s cooler.

Come explore Florida’s Space Coast and let Capt. Zach put you on big fish. Join Reaper Fishing Charters in Port Canaveral and get ready for an exciting day of fishing!
