Reel Candy Sportfishing

Highway A1A
Jupiter FL, United States

Reel Candy Sportfishing Charter Services invites you to explore the best fishing grounds in Southern Florida. Departing out of Jupiter Inlet Marina, right opposite the historic lighthouse, you will soon find yourself in the middle of a non-stop action. And then, when you come back to the marina, you will be able to celebrate an outstanding day of fishing.

The beautiful and productive waters of Jupiter are renowned as the ‘Sailfish Capital of the World.’ On your day out, you will be able to enjoy kite fishing with live bait for these monsters. The best time to explore the Sailfish Alley is from November through January.

Reel Candy Sportfishing doesn’t limit their trips to Sailfishing. The West Palm waters are also home to a large variety of exciting fish species. Target Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Goliath Grouper, King Mackerel, White Marlin, Sharks, Red Snapper, Wahoo, amberjack, Blackfin Tuna… and the list just keeps going! There is always something in season and biting to satisfy your angling needs.

Just step onboard the ‘Reel Candy,’ a Jersey offshore sport fishing boat. With 47’ of excellence, she comes powered by two 450 HP Detroit engines. The Reel Candy was built in 1988 and uphauled in 2015. She is well-maintained and outfitted with Garmin, Furuno, and Icom electronics. Her flybridge is a great place to spot any action going on beneath the surface, and the fighting chair is there for you if you are up to a challenge.

All trips come with all the necessary gear, tackle, licenses, and bottled water. Your catch will be cared for by your crew Live bait may be available at an additional charge.

Captain Marvin Steiding is a Maryland native. Marvin has been a career law enforcement officer, a business owner, and served on the Governor’s Commission for Public Safety. When he was in his twenties, Marvin had his first boat and began fishing the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. When he was exploring the offshore grounds in Ocean City, his passion for White Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sharks, and Tuna grew. In 1998, his boat came to Jupiter, Florida where he fished with Barry Hitch, Tom Henry, and other Maryland acquaintances. Fishing for Sailfish became a real challenge. Marvin quickly learned all that he could about Sailfishing which later became his passion. He started Reel Candy Sportfishing Charters in the late 90’s with his wife Candy in Nokomis.

Thank you for your review! Wish you could have have been with us today, the current slowed and the fishing was good. I know that doesn’t help, however we will gladly take you again at half the cost. Let us know.

Great crew and boat. They need some place to sit on the stern. My knees were killing me.

Thanks for fishing with us and we are glad you enjoyed your trip. Unfortunately when sailfishing we are all over the place with multiple hookups therefore there is no place to put chairs. We will be placing the fighting chair in soon for some big game angling. Let us know when you return we will do our best to accommodate you. Sorry about your knees!
