What anglers said about fishing in Sarasota Bay

Captain Louis went out of his way to provide a high quality tailored fishing trip, he taught us how to fish and took us to several hot spots. My son caught so many fish he lost count. Smiles all around for the adventure. We all loved it. We would book with him in the future.

Great beginning charter for those looking for fun family experience. May be a bit of a rough ride for small ones and elderly.

Just remember it is called fishing and not catching. We had caught a bunch of fish, just not the “monster” the captain was after.

Rely on a fishing charter for your first time out. Definitely worth going with Reel Fishing SWFL. And it's a MUST to hire Miguel from Reel Fishing SWFL Charters. Fee is very reasonable compared to other Charters in the area. It was perfect for my husband and I. We received Miguel's full attention. We learned many things about saltwater fishing. The wildlife was beautiful. I can't say enough good things about this charter. We'd DEFINITELY charter again. Thanks Miguel for a wonderful time.

Check with your captain a couple of days ahead of your trip to check boating conditions and be flexible for rescheduling. It can get cold at times out on the water in October, so dress in layers.

Trust your Capt to know what is bitting. They are on the water and know what to target and where to go. Some days are very good and some a little slower. Thats why it's called fishing and not just catching.
