Reel Edge Charters

Captain Dan’s goal is to create a fun and enjoyable adventure. No previous fishing experience is needed, the captain has you covered. He invites your whole family to come to Tampa, Florida and have a true fishing adventure in Florida.

You’ll be aboard a restored 22’ Sea Fox bay boat powered by a 2022 single 150 HP Suzuki engine. There is dry storage for your belongings and also a T-top for those hot days. The vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests per trip and comes equipped with a fishfinder, GPS, a VHF radio, a wireless trolling motor, and a Raptor shallow water anchor system. In addition, it features an ice-cooler and a livewell.

You and Captain Dan will target some lovely species such as Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Grouper, Key West Grunt, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Trout, and Redfish. You’ll attract fish by light tackle bottom fishing and spinning and you can keep most of the species.

The duration of charters counts from leaving the dock to coming back to the dock. The trip will be planned so that travel time is valued.

The captain will provide all the necessary equipment, licenses, bottled water, and ice for your trip. All you need to bring is food, drinks, sunscreen, a hat, and a pair of sunglasses.

Reel Edge Charters launches in multiple locations in the surrounding Tampa Bay area. Various transportation services can accommodate customers to and from the launch locations. Confirm with the captain for launch location for your trip.

Captain Dan only books one trip per day. He doesn’t like to rush anyone on or off the water. Captain Dan wants you to enjoy your time fishing and Florida’s beautiful natural habitat.
