Reel Deal Sportfishing

With Reel Deal Sportfishing there’s never a dull moment on the boat! Be prepared to hear the reels scream and at any moment be ready to battle every fish that comes your way.

The crew starts each trip in Sneads Ferry, NC; usually at Old Ferry Marina.  The captain will welcome all and provide a short safety briefing.

Our boat is a 25’ Tidewater that will accommodate up to 5 guests. It’s a center console powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines. It features the latest navigational electronics, a live bait tank, downriggers for trolling and of course, a cooler for all your catch!

Depending on the fishing technique and how far off the coast you go, you can target Redfish, Trout, Seabass, Spanish Mackerel, and Kingfish. Longer trips will take you after the likes of Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and more. You will have a great experience no matter what bites your hook!

All trips are family-friendly so feel free to bring the kids along. Just let the captain know in advance their age so proper safety equipment is prepared.

All equipment and fishing licenses are included in the price. Please feel free to bring your own food and drinks. At the marina and for a small fee, we’ll clean your catch to enjoy at home.

Reel Deal Sportfishing operates all year long. Join us the next time you’re looking for an exciting adventure!!
