The team at Reel Men Fishing Charters are passionate about their fishing and will prove their dedication by working hard to put their customers on fish. With a variety of trips and a choice of trip times, they allow their customers to choose the best option for them to have a fun and successful day on the water.

The vessel you will be spending the day aboard is a 21 ft Mako convertible center console with plenty of room for up to 6 guests. The vessel has a T-Top to provide shade from the hot Texan sun, and feels at home in both the skinny waters inshore and the choppier seas a few miles out. This gives you the flexibility to go wherever the bite is best at any time of day.

The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder (not used on all the trips) to sound out the most active fishing spots. Once you are in place, you could be targeting anything from Sharks to Sheepshead depending on the trip you choose. Because of this, you will be given quality tackle at a variety of weights and the option to cast, spin, and bottom fish. You will also be given plenty of bait to make sure nothing can resist your hooks.

On your trip, you will be taken out by an experienced local guide, who will show you all the best spots for your chosen target species. The Real Men team have been fishing these waters their whole life, and look forward to showing you the waters they love so much.

All trips come with tackle, bait, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch at the end of your charter. So whether you want a morning targeting Speckled Trout in the shallows, or a full day battling big Blacktips, Hammerheads and more, Reel Men Fishing Charters have the boat, the gear, and the local knowledge to get you on that fish of your dreams.
