Whether you’re looking for a quiet day on the water to relax and take some photographs, a fishing trip of a lifetime with family or friends, or an evening trip with your significant other, Reel Adventures Fishing is there for you. Captain Ryan Richey does his best to meet any special needs you may have. He offers charters out of Jacksonville and St Augustine and covers the waters from Mayport to Saint Augustine as well as deep water. If there are inexperienced or younger anglers in your group, he recommends taking a shorter day trip. Book with Reel Adventures Fishing and have an exciting and safe day on the water in Florida!

Your adventure takes place on a restored 26’ Mako center console. It can fit 6 guests, runs on 2 (two) 200HP Suzuki engines, and uses GPS and a fishfinder for navigation. Equipped with outriggers and downriggers, the boat makes fishing easier and more efficient. It also features an ice-box and a livewell. Captain Ryan makes sure you’re safe on the water. Apart from life jackets, there’s a VHS radio and a satellite phone so you’re always in touch with someone on the shore.

You’ll target Bull Shark, various sorts of Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Triggerfish, Wahoo, Gag Grouper, and more. Using light and heavy tackle, you can attract them by bottom, deep sea, drift, and handline fishing, as well as by trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping.

Young anglers are always welcomed but have to be at least 6 years old. Captain Ryan enjoys teaching the young about fishing, baiting the hook, and casting that first cast. He loves watching the smile on their face as they bring in their first catch.

The captain provides all the equipment, licenses, light snacks, and drinks needed for a fun day of fishing. Not only he can clean your catch so it’s ready for cooking, but will even offer suggestions for preparing it. All you should bring is some sunscreen and polarized glasses.

Join Reel Adventures Fishing and spend a wonderful day of fishing in beautiful Florida.
