Reel E Sea Charters invites you to come fish and explore the waters off southeast Florida with Captain Rick Schlee. A super passionate fisherman and captain, Rick provides a hands-on experience and makes each trip educational. Reel E Sea Charters is based out of Palm Beach - Jupiter, Florida, and offers trips to both inshore and offshore waters.

Captain Rick Schlee will take you fishing aboard a 28’ Contender center console with a capacity for 5 guests. It is powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots. The vessel is fully equipped with electronics and safety equipment as well as a toilet, multimedia system, a livewell, icebox, and a set of outriggers to maximize the catch.

Fishing in Palm Beach - Jupiter will allow you to target a multitude of inshore and offshore species such as Mutton Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, and more. If you choose an offshore trip, you can concentrate on live baiting the pelagics like King Mackerel, Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, or do bottom fishing for Grouper, Snapper, Barracuda, and Sharks.

Reel E Sea Charters provides everything you need on your trip to have a productive day, and that includes rods, reels, tackle, baits, a fishing license, and drinks. You will have a first mate on board to help you reel in your catch, and once the trip is over, they can clean and fillet your fish for you to take home.

All you have to do is book a trip to your liking, get your fishing group together, show up, and have fun!

Captain Rick started fishing Bass tournaments at the young age of 10 and also fishing from piers, seawalls, and drift boats. He is super passionate about fishing, loves being on the water, and just enjoying the natural views of nature. He became a fisherman because it's a true adrenaline rush to say the least, he loves to teach, see people learn, and catch fish. Captain Rick also fishes the local tournament circuits for Sailfish and other pelagics and has placed against some of the best talent in the world. He says: "Fishing is very addictive so I guess you can say it's an addiction and a challenge.".
