Background
I personally have been fishing since the age of 5. My father got me started in the fresh water lakes of northern Wisconsin and it spread like wildfire from there. From the Prince William Sound of Alaska, to the remote wilderness of northern Ontario Canada, as far southwest as San Diego California, and as far east as St Augustine FL. I can say I have seen many techniques and places along the way. Bringing this experience to your trip, I can assure you that you're fishing with an avid angler.

Captain Adam kept in touch regarding westher, which was great as we enjoyed a beautiful day. Tried hard to get into Cobia but alas it is fishing. Caught nearly a State record Mangrove snapper as well as amberjack and two BIG sharks. We will be back as we have some unfinished business with the Cobia and Mahi-mahi to deal with. Thanks Adam!

Earl, it was a pleasure having you and your son! Looking forward to the mahi/cobia hunt

I am a boating fanatic, catching and spearing tons of fish is just a bonus. The first time, Adam had a 21’ Mako, but we still went 55 miles out, had fresh Bonita and Tuna for lunch at sea, and 3 Wahoo to the boat with one in the 90lbs range!! Next was a 24’ cuddy Cabin Grady White with twin 175’s which upgraded to a great dry ride. Wahoo Tuna Bonita sashimi one trip, and Snapper Mahi and Grouper tacos back at home the next. Now Adam has an even better riding 33’ Marlin 300 Grady White that was added to the ranks ,my FAVORITE, and the twin 250’s make short work of any seas that Adam deems safe. We have speared Amberjack, Grouper, and tons of Spade fish and Lionfish.
Cptn Adam and crew have such great personalities, tons of energy, and once when we didn’t catch as many fish as my buddies wanted, Adam gave us fish of his own so that we could put food on the table and still eat fresh fish!!! That is why we came back to Reel Dream again even after a semi skunked day. Props to Reel Dream and their hard working ethics. We will continue to come back again and again.
Our next plan, is to meet Reel Dream Charters and thier Grady Whites in the Bahamas for a bachelor party trip. FISH ON, lines in gents, FISH ON!

Had a wonderful day with Captain Adam and Allen. We went fishing for Dolphin and ended up with two and a nice Cobia. We also had a Blue Marlin on the line for a short spell. I would recommend Reel Dream Charters.

He was so considerate, and made everyone comfortable and welcomed! He was very outgoing and committed to showing us he would make the trip worth every second of it! A nice big clean boat, and felt very safe! Forsure going next time I’m in the area! Money well spent!! So worth it! We also caught tons of fish!

5 of us went on a day trip and caught some awesome fish and even hooked up with a blue marlin. Adam is an awesome captain and knows how to put you on good fish. He’s very driven and determined to get some fish on the boat. This is by far the best offshore fishing trip we’ve ever been on and we can’t wait to go back out with him again.

Adam was very polite, professional and we enjoyed spending our day with him.  We took a new route and were trying for cobia and didn’t get what we were looking for but any day on the water is awesome.  Adam and his gear and boat were top notch.  Great overall experience.  Thank you Adam. 

PS.  The Fishing Booker site sent us to the wrong pier so please confirm with your captain where you are to meet.

Captain Adam was amazing from the booking of the trip to after the trip! He stayed in contact before the trip to talk about weather and what would be best for us fishing. Then on our way out made sure to check that we were comfortable the whole time. He didn’t waste anytime finding fish for us! He is very knowledgeable and made sure to give us a trip of a lifetime! THANK YOU!! We definitely will be back to see him!

Our captain got sick that was going to take us on a 12-hour deep sea fishing charter. Started calling people at 4:30 in the morning when we got the message because that day was the only day we can go a group of 6 us. Madam not only accommodated last minute but we still got out there on time. Very professional yet felt like he was a good buddy of mine at the same time. I would truly 100% fish with Adam again and will be fishing with Adam again.

First, I have to say our son has Down Syndrome, and Adam was super nice and made him firstmate for the day. He was knowledgeable and excited to help us with everything. He explained where we were going, why, and how to fish that spot properly.  When we had a question he was patient and answered. He was a lot of fun and made our trip memorable! A great time was had by all.

Captain Adam is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and made the trip a ton of fun. This was one of the best days of fishing in my entire life and I would recommend Captain Adam to anyone in the St.Augustine or Jacksonville area who enjoys having a great time out on the water.

Couldn’t have asked for a better trip! We caught everything and capt adam and his first mate were great guys. They would have made the trip fun even if we didn’t catch any fish. Caught so many fish we didn’t know what to do with them all. Already have another trip booked for spring.

There were 6 of us from my company on this trip. Adam and his deck hand were awesome. He watched the weather perfectly for us so we would not have a rough day on the seas. The Captain was definitely focused on making sure we had a great time and we sure did. He and his dechkand were very professional, safe, and informative, they made sure they got us on the FISH,and all around some really cool dudes to hang out with.

We started our day in the dark with full warm weather gear, hats gloves, waters etc.
Within a few hours we were out to the Gulf Stream waters and in T shirts reelling in aggressive wahoo, Bonita, and blackfin tuna! We also got the biggest wahoo the captain had ever seen to the boat. It was unfortunately bit in half by a tiger shark, but the half that we got in was still 40lbs!!!

I highly recommend Reel Dream Fishing Charter for your offshore adventure. Captain Adam is very professional and has a lot of knowledge about fishing and boats. He will be sure to put you on some fish! His crew is very friendly and everyone is helpful! Definitely would go on another charter with Reel Dream Fishing Charter!

Excellent 12 hr Gulf Stream fishing trip with Captain Adam.  The entire crew was very professional and accommodating.  Captain Adam knows how to fish and how to put you on some fish.  We caught all types of fish including: Wahoo, Black Tuna, Yellow tail snapper, Vermillion snappers, Trigger fish and Amberjack.  We went home with a cooler full of fish and some great memories.  I would definitely fish here again!

beautiful weather and mild waves on board with captain`s Adam Petnuch. we were a group of five, absolutely beginers as being offshore for very first time. We are from Slovakia hence no sea fishing experience at all. However captain Adam had everythink ready for us, rods, bite, boat, drinks and very good presentation about what we have to do, where`re we going and what we should catch. We all had a great time on board and even catch about 6ft long shark what captain professionaly got out of the water on board. I would not hesitate to go with him for fishing trip again, that will probabely happen in February on my next visit to Florida. I would recomend his service for everyone.
