My husband and I spent my birthday celebrating with a beautiful Florida day out on Tampa Bay with Captain Mike. It was our first experience with a charter and we were not disappointed.  Capt Mike knows when to hold’em and when to fold’em.  Moving often to ensure we had every opportunity to catch something, anything!!  From catfish to manta rays, a weird lizard fish,  trout and a really nice Spanish Mackerel.  We had a blast and plan to do it again!!!

My grandson and I had a great day fishing with Capt Mark. We wanted to catch enough fish for a family fish fry party. Capt Mark said that Sea Bass was one of the best tasting fish that came of Tampa Bay. It is and everyone at the fish fry agreed. Thanks again Captain see you in February.

Sorry for the delay Capt.! I booked this trip for my son and I while he was on fall break from out of state. The morning of, Capt. Mark called me and gave me the weather report, which wasn’t very favorable that morning and asked me if I wanted to proceed that day or reschedule. My son wanted to go so we decided to make the trip. As predicted the weather never fully cooperated so even though the fish didn’t work with us that day my son had a great time on the boat and enjoyed the experience tremendously which was the point anyway. I highly recommend Capt. Mark. Thank again!!!

Thanks Charles, The winds are still blowing. Enjoyed the day on the boat with you and Dillon, which by the way, is a Very Well Mannered young man. It’s great to see the father/son relationship you have with Dillon. If more fathers did the same our young generation would have more respect. Thanks.

Contacted Captain Mark at the last minute after finding out our plans for the next day had changed. We had a very enjoyable day fishing along with catching a lot of different spices of fish. The Redfish and Mangrove Snappers we keep made a delicious dinner for us. I highly recommend Captain Mark, Very knowledgeable with the area.

I have fished aboard Capt Mark’s boat 9 time over the last 3 years. I always bring clients along on our fishing trips. 8 out of the 9 charters were fantastic and caught a lot of fish. The trip in August 2015 was not the greatest. He had informed me that the bay area had a lot of rain the last few weeks and had just about shut the bite down. My client still wanted to go so we went. Caught some small Trout, Redfish, 8 Spanish Mackerel and an 3 1/2 foot Blacktip Shark that went around the boat about 5 times. My client stills talks about the Shark he caught, Cant always have 40 fish day, Over all Capt Mark is a stand up guy and a hell of a fisherman.

My brother and myself have booked 3 half day charter with Captain Mark Magni of Reel Till U Feel Charters in Tampa, FL. Called Fishingbooker to ask some questions about what was biting. The man I spoke with had no answers to my questions so I looked Captain Mark up myself.  This last charter, We want some fish to have an Outdoor BBQ Party, Captain Mark told me about Mangrove Snappers and boy was he right about being the best fish to eat out of Tampa Bay. We caught over 20 Mangroves each, Keeping 10 of the bigger ones, along with 4 Sea Trout. What a day. I’m hooked, Have another charter booked for the end Of August and I can’t wait.
