About Us

Reel Hook Fishing Charters was created because of one thing, the love of fishing.  As USCG Rated captains and tour guides, and with 20+ years of experience, we love the sport of fishing both inshore and offshore and the beauty that nature has to offer.  We understand the changing waters, migration patterns, and habits of our amazing Florida fishing grounds.  A few of the favorites that our clients love pulling into the boar are the Redfish, Snook and Speckled Trout of our inshore waters as well as the Cobia, Grouper and various shark species of the Gulf.  

Reel Hook Fishing Charter’s captains are dedicated to learning as much as possible about the various types of angling opportunities available inside the 25 miles of fishing area that we utilize.  From the highly productive flats, creeks and rivers that typify our inshore fishing grounds to the the oyster beds, sand bars and reefs of the Gulf of Mexico.
