Reel Crackers Outfitters

Reel Crackers Outfitters invites you to enjoy Islamorada, the ‘Fishing Capital of the World,’ with one of the captains from their family team. They offer a first class service aboard a very comfortable boat named Suzanne Too.

Reel Crackers Outfitters offers a variety of fishing trips to suit everyone’s taste and budget. If you are after a short and sweet half day trip, you can visit the nearby reefs where Yellowtail Snapper, Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Red Grouper, and more can be found. If you want to catch larger Grouper and Snapper, and some Kingfish, you can do so on a 6-hour nearshore trip.

Alternatively, if you have a whole day to spend on these magical and abundant waters, then the full day, 8-hour trip is just what you need. Your targeted species will be offshore fish like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and Tuna.

Fishing aboard the “Suzanne Too” is comfortable and easy. The custom-built sports fishing boat is 31-foot long with a 12′-foot beam, and newly re-powered twin 210 HP Cummins Diesel engines. You will find the latest fishing electronics, all the USCG-approved safety equipment, outriggers, a livewell, an icebox, and a toilet for your convenience.

Reel Crackers Outfitters includes all the fishing gear you need such as rods, reels, tackle, bait, ice, and a fishing license. They have a first mate who works hard to make your trip successful and helps you reel in your fish. They also clean, bag, and ice your catch so make sure you bring an ice chest to transport it in.
