I grew up on the Gulf Coast fishing as many times a week as I could. Love the outdoors and especially the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy meeting people and showing them what our local fishery can yield. We are kid friendly and know what it takes to energize our younger fisher generation in becoming a successful angler. It's just not fishing , but a fishing adventure..
I'll fish whatever way it takes to be successful. Like bottom fishing best because I like the challenge of locating and catching those species.

Reel Kill is the best. If your serious about fishing this is the place for you. Great captain and deck hand. His boat gets you there fast so you spend more time fishing and less time getting there. They get you on fish fast and you stay on them. It was non stop action. From triggers and snapper all the way to a 6 foot shark. This is the only place I would use.

We had such an awesome time with Captain Bryars and his deck hand, Wade. What a fabulous DAY!!  They both were great, very friendly and a lot of fun.  Captain kept us catching fish all day.  They really cared about what we wanted to do and kept us away from a storm. We caught many species of fish and we will definitely book with Reel Kill again!!

Capt Mike was very knowledgeable about where to put us on fish. And took us out even though the water was a little rough. We had come from West Virginia and didn’t have time to wait another day. Very compassionate person as well as a great person. I would definitely recommend him. And his deck hand was awesome.

We booked a 1/2 day with Captain Mike and the Reel Kill. We had a perfect weather day, and they took us out quickly to get to the fish. We started with Vermillion Snapper and quickly started getting hits. After about 20 fish, captain Mike suggested we drop our lines to about 20 feet off the bottom and then we started hitting some big fish. We quickly hit our limit of 50, and they were great.

We then headed to a little deeper water and decided to see if we could attract a shark. We got one, a 350 lb Bull shark that we fought for 35 minutes between the four of us. Catch and release on that one… great trip, the crew were informative, attentive and did a great job.

Reel Kill, prefect name for the day we had. Captain Mike knew exactly where to go, when to drop and when to pull up and move to larger fish. We knew we had a great day, but it was awesome to hear others back at the pier telling us, y’all killed it. Thanks Captain Mike and First Mate Brier. We will book again with Reel Kill!

Want to catch fish with a guy who knows the Gulf?  Captain Mike is your guy.  From baitfish to a 150 pound shark, a nice cobia, and enough catch and release snapper and amberjack to make your knees sore from the side of the boat, don’t miss Reel Kill.  Unless, I want the same day as you do, then….

Seriously, GO!!!!

Always a great time fishing with Capt Mike!  This certain day I went out with my father and brother. We had a blast and couldn’t fit another fish in the box. I highly recommend fishing with Capt Mike if you want to have a great fishing experience and want to catch fish. In the picture is a cart full of grouper, barrel fish, amberjack, vermillion snapper, white snapper and a blackfin tuna to top off the day. Look forward to our next trip with Capt Mike!
