Reel Deal Charter Fishing

Step aboard Reel Deal Charters for a top-of-the-line fishing experience. Based out of Key Largo, you’ll have the chance to explore the stunning reefs and crystal clear deep seas offshore, as you go after a range of incredible fish that make this one of the best fishing destinations in the world.

Captain Eric Reynolds will be your guide, and he promises to do everything he can to make sure you leave with a smile and a lasting memory to share. A native to southern Florida, he’s been fishing these waters his whole life. With his wealth of experience, you can rest assured that he’ll help you fill the oat.

Take advantage of all the latest gear aboard the 31’ Contender center console, as you embark on a fishing trip to remember. Thanks to the navigational systems, including a Furuno GPS, Fishfinder, Radar and Sonar, you’ll get to the sweet spots in no time, before you start trolling, bottom fishing, and jigging, popping, or even spearfishing to land the fish of a lifetime.

Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, there’s something for you, as you go after a range of monstrous pelagic fish in the open seas. Target Dolphin, Sailfish, Tuna, Kingfish, Wahoo, and Swordfish, as you put your fishing skills to the test to fill the boat with some delicious meat.

Each trip is all-inclusive, so the only things you need to bring are your own drinks and snacks, and sunscreen. Get in touch with the captain if you fancy something different, and he can arrange a special Lobster trip, or help you relax in the paradise that is the Florida Keys. You can even go as far as the Bahamas, so there’s really something for everyone.

With such a wealth of fishing on offer, the only thing you should be asking is "when can I come aboard Reel Deel Charter Fishing!?" Get in touch and take the first step towards an unforgettable fishing experience!

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.
