Reelit Charters

Explore some of the best fishing spots in the bountiful waters of Fort Lauderdale! Your guide and host for the day is Captain Xavier from Reelit Charters. He’s been fishing his entire life and loves to share some of his best tips with other anglers. Join regardless of your skill level, as everyone’s welcome to join. You only need a bit of positive attitude to enjoy the day!

You’ll be fishing on a 22’ Mako boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This center console has been newly restored in 2020 and has all the latest navigational gadgets. The boat is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum speed of 30 mph. You can use a cooler to keep your catch fresh, as well as outriggers for trolling, and a live bait tank.

With a variety of fishing trips to choose from, you’ll easily find the one that targets your favorite fish. Stay closer to the shore for Kingfish, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, and Snook, or head out offshore for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Amberjack, Tuna, Sailfish, and many more.

All fishing equipment you’ll need for the day is included in the price of the trip. The captain will also prepare some snacks but you can always bring your own food and drinks. Don’t forget your sunglasses and a hat!

Come where your fishing dreams come true. Join Reelit Charters!

Covid-19 Update: Your captain will be cleaning and sanitizing the boat and equipment before and after each charter booked. He’ll wear a mask on each trip and supply hand sanitizer to prevent contamination. Wearing a buff is not required but recommended as well for all clients.
