Reel Strung Out Charters - 22'

With Reel Strung Charters, you get more than just a fishing trip. Capt. TJ will share his wealth of knowledge and experience with you and help you create memories that will last a lifetime.

The beautiful waters of New Smyrna Beach will be all yours, from the bridges and jetties inshore to nearshore wrecks and fishing grounds up to 15 miles out.

Enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere and hone your angling skills. Catch trophies or land your first ever fish. Come back to shore with your very own “catch of the day!”

Your potential targets will include Snapper, Grouper, Black Drum, Redfish, and Triggerfish – all of those can be found nearshore. While checking the bite closer to the coast, you will be chasing Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Black Drum, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper. And finally, you will be able to dedicate your time on the water to batting Blacktip, Bull, and Hammerhead Sharks – all the “Jaws” fans will love it!

Explore the “Redfish and Sharkbite Capital of the World” aboard a 22’ Tidewater bay boat. Out of the box in 2014, this vessel has plenty of space for up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort and style. The boat comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and is rigged with tackle, gear, accessories, and electronics to build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding.

Reel Strung Charters will provide you with everything but food. Happy fishing!
