Reel Nice invites you for an enjoyable day of fishing in Key West, Florida.

Captain Marc will make sure you enjoy your stay on the water and return home with nothing but pleasant memories of your journey. Come aboard and fish with Reel Nice!

You’ll start your trip on a 24’ Pathfinder 24 TRS bay boat. It can sit up to 4 anglers and runs on a 300 HP Yamaha engine. The boat uses GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio technology for efficient and safe movement on the water. It’s equipped with snorkeling and spearfishing gear and has also got a livewell.

The vast choice of species you can chase includes but isn’t limited to Yellowtail and Lane Snapper, Bull and Lemon Shark, Mahi Mahi, Speckled Trout, and Cobia. Using light and heavy tackle, you’ll try to catch them by bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, drift fishing, as well as spearfishing. You can keep the fish you catch if you want to and you’re welcome to bring kids on the trip as well.

Your captain will provide you with all the fishing tackle, lures, as well as fishing licenses. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch, at no extra charge. Yours is only to arrive on time and bring your favorite food and drinks to stay refreshed throughout the trip.
