Member since December 2016
Reel Tight Fishing Charters was re-established in December of 2016. Owner, Matt Fueyo, ran charters for over ten years inshore and offshore in the Sarasota and surrounding waters. During the 2009 BP oil spill, he left the industry and joined the Army. After completing a tour overseas, he returned to Sarasota to pursue his lifelong passion. Matt has years of running private yachts for high profile owners which is reflected in his level of professionalism and cleanliness in his charter boat company. Even though Blue Marlin are his favorite fish to catch, Snook and Tarpon still give him the adrenaline pumping action that made him fall in love with sport fishing. Let us show you how a professional program operates.
