Reel In Fun Charters

For your next vacation to Florida, book a fishing trip with Reel In Fun Charters. Captain Doug has over 5 decades of fishing experience and loves to inspire others to fall in love with fishing. He does a lot of work with children, volunteering his time and boat to taking inner-city and disabled children out on fishing trips. Your family will have a fantastic time out on the water with him.

You’ll spend the day on his 28’ center console. This boat is great for the young or the elderly, as there is plenty of seating and protection from the sun. This is a stable ride that will have you at the fishing grounds in no time at all – less time driving to the hot spots means more time fishing.

There are tons of fish that you can target in these waters. This includes Redfish, Needlefish, Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, Spotted Seatrout, and plenty more. Whether this is your first fishing trip or your hundredth, there is a fish out here with your name on it.

Children of all ages are welcome on board and will have life vests provided for them. Please note, alcohol is not allowed on board.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your catch. After the trip, the captain can fillet your catch for you, ready for you to take home and cook. Live bait is also included during peak season. When it’s unavailable, dead bait will be used instead. The captain will prepare this before the trip so you can fish for as long as possible.

Don’t forget to bring along food and drinks. It’s a good idea to bring a non-spray sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. Wear light breathable clothing in layers and you’re good to go.

Book a trip with Reel In Fun Charters today for an unforgettable fishing trip that the whole family will love.

Captain Doug has over 50 years of experience, but only recently decided to start his own charter company with the help of a client who thoroughly enjoyed a fishing trip with him. Capt. Doug loves to help people discover a lot of fishing and seeing their smiles when they catch their first fish. He loves taking children on trips and runs a lot of free trips for disabled people and inner-city children. He is currently working on a boat that will be specifically designed to suit disabled people.

For the money, I would just go into the gulf.  Captain was nice but did not have enough bait to keep us going all day...
