    Amazing Experience

    Booked a 5hr trip with Reel Deal. It was an amazing experience. Zach was an awesome captain and very knowledgeable about fishingthe Gulf. It took us a moment to get on the sharks but he made it happen. If you're hesistant about booking with these guys don't be because they're awesome. We caught a huge bullshark and a tigershark and by then we were straight noodle armed from all the pulling. Amazing experience is all I can say!

    Reel Deal Shark Experience

    Had a very good time. Friendly captain with a lot of experience. Caught so many sharks that we couldn’t fight another one. Would recommend

    Reel Deal Shark Fishing Charters Destin, FL

    Fishing with Reel Deal was a blast! For not having that long of a trip I was still able to catch a few shark and other smaller fish as well! Will definitely do again and definitely recommend it!

    Shark Fishing Charter

    First issue I noticed was the poor fishing gear. Old and beat up. As well as not set up for us to fish with. The captain had to spend to much time setting up poles so we lost fishing time there. Other charters that I have been on, the gear was ready to go. Next issue was the fact that there were two shark poles but only one was in the water. The more poles the better the odds. The captain himself to me was also not as experienced as he should have been . Unfortunately for “reel deals” I would spend my money elsewhere. Never use them again

    Steve is the bomb!

    We really questioned about our trip when we saw the boat because it’s so open with no protection. It has no bathroom facility on it and I was a bit concerned about that for my six-year-old son but honestly it was the best ever! The 3 LARGE shark that we pulled in Drive us around about about 10 times so if we wouldn’t of had that kind of boat it would’ve been an awful experience. Steve is an absolute gem and was extremely patient with my son with all the questions. Steve is the captain and the crew. He multitasks so well and we were blessed to be able to catch three shark and five Kings. He knew exactly where to go. He was time efficient. And he was so much fun!

    Shark Fishing

    It was a fun trip- we did not catch any sharks which was a large disappointment. We did catch some small fish we could bring home to eat but overall for what we paid we were disappointed. The boat captain for the day was awesome and did what he could- it just wasn’t a good fishing day I assume. We will try again but with a different charter hopefully to catch some shark. The boat was good but with the waves so large going out to sea we were completely soaked- there is no cover on the boat- I mean drenched to the point I wanted to put on goggles because the waves were coming over the top of the boat into our face and laps. The ride back to the marina was much calmer and a beautiful sunset.

    Sharks Fight

    Great experience, we just kept landing sharks. We caught and released about 6 sharks in less than an hour we had to switch to king-fishing, as we got tired out from the fight those sharks gave. Steve was a wonderful host and captain. Thanks again Steve!
