Reel Pro Charters

Fish the picturesque flats and backcountry of St. Petersburg, Florida, with Reel Pro Charters! Whether you’re looking for a thrill-filled Tarpon hunt or an inshore angling trip that will exceed all expectations, Captain Mike Grasso knows just how to put you on the best bite.

Your trip will take place aboard a top-of-the-line 20’ Bergman flats boat that has plenty of storage space to keep your belongings dry. She is a stable fishing platform with plenty of room to take out up to 4 anglers.

Capt. Mike primarily targets Redfish, Snook, Trout, and Tarpon, although you never know what will turn up on the end of your line. Mackerel, Cobia, Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and Sharks are also in the cards, depending on the conditions and the time of the year.

Your guide will show you some tricks and tips on how to reel in something good, and he will also provide live bait, should you need it. You’re free to keep your catch if you’d like (except Tarpon), or you can release it after you’ve taken a photo with it.

You will use quality Penn reels and Star rods, and fishing licenses for everyone on board are provided by the captain. He will even clean and fillet any fish you decide to take home so you can enjoy your catch fresh on the grill the same day.

With seating and life jackets for the little ones, fishing with Reel Pro Charters is as comfortable as much as it is fun. Remember to pack snacks and drinks to keep you energized because you’ll need strength and focus when your line tightens. Hop aboard, the amazing St. Petersburg fishery awaits!

My name is Captain Mike Grasso I have lived in the Tampa Bay area for 23 years. I have been fishing this area since I was 6 years old. I have mastered the inshore fishing spots and would love to check them out with you during one of my inshore charters. I have competed in the Professional Tarpon Tournaments in Boca Grande for 5 years. I take pride in my fishing work, including the rods and reels I use during my trips, as well as the boat I will provide for you. I would love to take you on your next fishing adventure.
