Reel Tight Charters

Reel Tight Charters takes you fishing around the waters out of Pompano Beach, Fl. You can join Capt. Steven year round and he will give his best to make sure you have fun as you take on some of the most hard hitting fish of these waters, including Swordfish out near the Gulf Stream. So, get your fishing buddies and hop onboard.

Your trip can see you fishing around the nearshore waters where you can get Yellowtail Snapper, or head out to do some trolling for Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and more. There are also Kingfish and Amberjack here, and to top all of that—daytime Swordfishing! Hardcore anglers, we’re looking at you.

Whichever package you choose, rest assured that you will be fishing with a fisherman who gives all he’s got to make your day on the water fun, enjoyable, and hopefully filled with fish. Capt. Steven fell in love with fishing when he was serving the army in Panama, and wanted to learn how to fish Florida waters too.

Capt. Steven operates a 25’ Seafox walkaround that is powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines. She can take up to four people and give them enough space for fishing. The boat is fitted with GPS and a fishfinder, has a toilet and a cooler, carries the safety gear, as well as a range of rods and tackle which you can use without additional charge.

You will get all the fishing tackle, rods, and reels. On Swordfishing trips, the crew will also bring electric reels and heavy tackle which you can use. Most of the time, anglers onboard fish with dead bait.

Kids are welcome to join the chase, but it’s best not to bring infants onboard for their own safety. You should pack food and drinks, as well as sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera. The rates cover the fishing license too. Departure times are flexible.

Book your spot on time, get your friends and come for a genuinely nice day on the water that can easily be a lasting memory.

While serving in the US Army, I was assigned to Panama where the fishing is awesome, so I became hooked on it. I was a successful tournament winning captain in Panama. I have the largest tournament record dorado caught to this date at over 48 pounds. When I moved to South Florida, I needed to learn many more techniques in order to fish successfully here in the USA. I don’t claim to know everything but I will give 100% to make your trip successful. A USCG 100 ton Master licensed Captain, my charter captain license includes 4 guest Fishing permits with lobster and Snook. My favorite quote is: 'There is no such thing as a bad fishing trip, you either catch fish or you learn something..... either way you are not in the office.'
