Reel Time Fishing Charters

Reel Time Fishing Charters offers inshore and offshore fishing trips out of Bradenton, Florida. The Captain guarantees a safe and exhilarating experience on the water to all anglers joining his trips. Reel Time Fishing Charters are committed to working hard to make sure their guests fish in comfort and style.

Enjoy your trip aboard a 29’ Dusky, powered by twin 200 HP Suzuki engines. Originally built in 1987, the vessel was restored in 2015 and is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. A live bait tank is fitted on board, as well as an ice-box to keep your catch fresh, a comfortable hull for relaxation in between bites, and outriggers and downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

Captain Mong grew up in Bradenton, Florida, so he knows the local waters. Reel Time Charters specializes in four, six, and eight-hour trips for a great variety of species, including Tarpon, Redfish, Cobia, Permit, Snook, Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Shark, and Hogfish to name a few. You will be fishing the reefs, wrecks, flats, inshore, or head offshore, where the Captain will help you with making the decision on which species you would like to catch.

A trip with Reel Time Fishing Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and the licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip for a ride home, where you could taste it for dinner later. If you want, feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you.

Now simply find the next opening in the captain’s calendar, book a trip to your liking and you’ll be ready to begin your next adventure!
