Reel Thang Charters

Garrison Bight Marina
Key West FL, United States

Reel Thang Charters is located in Key West, Florida. They are run and operated by Captain Will, who is a real threat to the fish. The Floridian waters are rich with various species, and the Captain knows all the hot spots. A day out with Reel Thang Charters usually results in outstanding catches, and who wouldn’t want to land that dream fish?

Enjoy a comfortable ride on a spacious 27-foot boat, which comes powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha V6 engines and has a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. The vessel’s top-notch navigational electronics include a GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar. Along with an anchoring system and an ice-box, there is a portable toilet and a live bait tank, as well as downriggers and outriggers. The boat can comfortably accommodate up to six guests.

From kids to first time anglers to record seekers, Captain Will welcomes all levels of expertise. Reel Thang Charters always try to customize each trip to suit their guests’ needs. The trips are from four to eight hours, so choose how much time you want to spend on the water. You can fish inshore and backcountry, as well as wrecks and reefs, or head offshore for some big action. The Captain’s preferred fishing techniques are trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, spinning, and light tackle. Target Tarpon, Mahi Mahi, Great Barracuda, Red and Black Grouper, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Mangrove, Mutton, and Yellowtail Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo. Please note, that daily catch and size limits apply.

After your trip with Teel Thang Charters, the crew will clean and fillet your catch to take home. The crew will provide fishing licenses, as well as bottled water, so you can bring your snacks if you want.

My 2 daughters ages 6 and 13 my wife and I had a Fantastic Time !!! Captain Ross brought us 2 Great Fishing spots were we caught a total of 59 fish Red Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Blue Fish, and Grouper. We kept 18 of them. The best part was how he helped my daughters who were fishing for the very first time. My 6 year old caught 24 fish my 13 year old caught 22 fish. I caught 10 and my wife caught 3 but that was due to her taking a lot of pictures instead of fishing. When we go fishing again it will be with Captain Ross!!!
