Reel Magic Fishing Charters

Are you ready for an adventure unlike any other? Then book a trip with Reel Magic Fishing Charters today for an unforgettable day out. Captain Tony Skeen will be with you every step of the way. With over 5 decades of experience out on the water, he knows the best places to take you for the most productive day possible.

Step on board his 22’ Marco boat, with a Sou’Wester hardtop. This beautiful boat can have you and 3 of your fishing friends on board. The vessel is comfortable, with plenty of shade, and a full head toilet.

With a 150 HP Evinrude engine on board, you are sure to find yourself at the fishing grounds before you know it. There are full safety features and navigational equipment on board, so you can fish with peace of mind. This includes a Furuno fishfinder that will give you that extra edge out on the water.

Species you’ll be targeting include Pink Snapper, Yellowtail Amberjack, Kahawai, John Dory, Gurnard, and Silver Trevally. These will be caught around 10 miles offshore, from depths ranging from 50–165 feet, around the Hen and Chickens Islands.

There are rods you can hire from the captain on the day. These are best for bottom fishing. If you intend to spend the day jigging or soft baiting you’ll need to bring your own rods along. Feel free to bring along your own food and drink. Please purchase a fishing license before the day.

You are welcome to keep the fish you catch. On board, there is a 90 l fish bin to keep your catch chilled and in top condition.

Book now with Reel Magic Fishing Charters for a wonderful day out that will leave you the envy of all your friends!
