Reel Dream Fishing Charters LLC

Fishing trips will be aboard a 32’ Grady White powered by twin Suzuki engines totaling 500 HP! Captain Adam Petnuch is the 24 year old owner operator of Reel Dream Fishing Charters LLC. He built this business from the ground up and takes pride in every trip! If you’re looking for the captain that will do everything he can to put you on HUGE FISH, look no further!

The boat is capable of speeds up to 45mph while carrying up to six passengers. There is a full head (bathroom) on board the boat, along with a fridge for your food and beverages. THEY KNOW WHERE THE FISH HIDE!!! Captain Adam has over 100 dives in water as deep as 170 feet out of St Augustine! He sees EXACTLY where the fish are so there is absolutely no guess work!

Choose from one of the Nearshore or Offshore options to determine what you would like to catch! Nearshore Trips are great for children under 10 years of age and senior citizens due to the calm waters, but unfortunately don’t produce as many legal fish. Offshore Trips are where you will absolutely fill up the cooler, but the conditions typically are not as calm as nearshore and therefore are not best for the elderly.

Nearshore 4hr, 6hr & 8hr: Cobia, Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Sharks, Red Drum, Black Drum, Flounder, Trout, and Barracuda. Offshore 10hr & 12hr: Gag Grouper, Scamp Grouper, Red Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Red Snapper, Vermillion Snappers, Triggerfish, Porgys, Sharks, and Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo!

Any legal fish you catch are yours to keep, and the crew will clean and bag it for you. All you need to bring is snacks/food, beverages/alcohol, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a smile! Tips are very appreciated for the deckhand!

About the Captain

I personally have been fishing since the age of 5. My father got me started in the fresh water lakes of northern Wisconsin and it spread like wildfire from there. From the Prince William Sound of Alaska, to the remote wilderness of northern Ontario Canada, as far southwest as San Diego California, and as far east as St Augustine FL. I can say I have seen many techniques and places along the way. Bringing this experience to your trip, I can assure you that you're fishing with an avid angler.
