Reelentless Pursuit Charters welcomes you aboard for some of the best back bay fishing around. Target a who’s who of inshore favorites, from Redfish and Trout to monster Tarpon and Goliath Grouper.

Captain Eric offers a range of trip times as well as a choice of morning or afternoon departures to make sure you get exactly what you want. Out to enjoy the area’s stunning nature but not too interested in fishing? Try a fun shelling trip and head home with some beautiful shells to decorate your home.

However you choose to spend your day, do it aboard a clean, modern vessel with all the best equipment. Captain Eric’s 23’ Hanson bay boat was fresh out of the box in 2017, providing a reliable ride and a stable fishing platform.

The vessel has room for up to six guests thanks to her wide, 9 1/2‘ beam and is equipped with the best tackle and equipment to make sure you all pull in something special. Quality rods and reels from Penn, Shimano, G-Loomis, and Temple Fork are combined with the latest electronics and the best bait to get you pulling in fish after fish!

Fishing trips start when your lines are in the water. So whether you spend a whole summer’s day battling Snook and Tarpon or head out for a quick afternoon targeting tasty Trout and Redfish, you will have the time to enjoy your trip to the full.

All Reelentless Fishing Charters trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and licenses for everyone onboard – just bring your snacks, your drinks, and plenty of energy for the fun day ahead of you!
