Reel Deal Charters – Deep Water

(213)
Going fast!

Reel Deal Charters is a privately owned and operated full-time operation that is your chance for catching a notorious Florida Red Snapper in state waters (in season). 

Fishing out of Panama City, Florida, Reel Deal Fishing Charters offers rod-bending fishing trips aboard their recently renovated classic Bertram boat. They enjoy taking anglers of all ages and experience levels aboard their boat for unforgettable days of fishing. 

Book a private trip for 1-6 passengers, or check out the split (shared) option, which is designed for anyone who wants a private setting without the burden of the cost of a full charter.  Please note that the split trips are not guaranteed to fill, so be sure to include your flexible dates to best be accommodated.

The boat was built by one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers of fishing vessels, and it has been fully restored with up to date equipment and modern comforts to make sure your day on the water is truly special. Powered by twin Cummins engines, the boat will take you quickly and safely to the fishing grounds, and its full range of fish-finding electronics will ensure you are fishing the best spots for the bite on the day.

Reel Deal Fishing Charters offer a wide range of trips, giving you the chance to try everything from cruising around St Andrew Bay as the sun sets to fishing for Red Snapper and much more on 12 hour trolling and bottom fishing trips. In the Spring the fishing is great for Spanish Mackerel and Sheepshead, and as the weather warms up trolling for King Mackerel and bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper, Vermillion Snapper, White Snapper, and many more. A night time shark trip is also great fun for the entire family!  No age limit.  Bring your cooler with your eats and drinks for the day and let’s go have a great day on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico!  You’re sure to see a spectacular sunrise or sunset.

Capt. Mark has had a love for boats his entire adult life and has had his captain’s license for several years. He has always been the one to fix the boats and drive for fun, but not charter one. He decided in the summer of 2017 to start captaining “Deep Water” and has enjoyed this newfound demanding, yet satisfying calling in his life.
