Reel Deal Charter Fishing

Reel Deal Charters is a top of the line fishing experience. Our goal is for every customer to leave with a smile and a lasting memory to share. We use the highest quality equipment and gear on our charters, and our 31 ft Contender open fisherman, powered by twin Yamaha 250hp 4 stroke engines, will get you to the fishing grounds quickly and comfortably. The boat is furnished with the full range of navigational systems, with Furuno GPS, Fishfinder, Radar and Sonar, as well as snorkeling equipment and spearfishing gear if you want to broaden your fishing experience.

We specialize in utilizing light tackle for pelagic species such as Dolphin, Sailfish, Tuna, Kingfish, Wahoo, and Swordfish. We also offer bottom fishing and kite fishing, and we welcome all types of anglers from the most seasoned to the complete beginner.

Our trips are all inclusive so the only things you will need to bring are your own food/beverages and sunscreen. Specialty trips are always welcomed, whether you want to dive for lobster or make a run to explore what the keys have to offer. We also do a number of weekend trips to some of the most beautiful and plentiful islands in the Bahamas. We are available for single day or multi day trips. Check for availability and pricing.

Departure time may vary, so please contact the Captain upon booking to confirm the time of departure.

I grew up in South Florida and my father was a FWC (Florifa Wildlife Commition) officer down here for 36 years. He taught me the love of the outdoors and conservation for our fragile ecosystem. From that, my love for being on the water evolved into teaching and showing other people that don't have the privilege to experience our ecosystem that we have to offer.
