Reel Deal Fishing Trip

Reel Deal Fishing Trip
about 1 year ago
The experience we had with Capt. Steve was awesome! There were 4 of us on a 4 hour excursion and he had us on so many fish. The Snapper we caught were very nice size and delicious. We will definitely go fishing with Capt. Steve again! Mike C.

Big Deal fishing with Capt. Zach
about 17 days ago
Charter was ready to go on time, Capt Zach was personable, knowledgeable, and kept my family engaged. We trolled, with nominal results, then progressed to bait fishing. He put us on fish, when they stopped biting he moved to other proven spots. We didn't land any whales, but had a lot of action and a great time.

I have always been to cheap to book a fishing trip but I did this time at the suggestion of my wife. Man-o-man what a trip, we hooked a Hammerhead Shark that was over 7’ long and 170#. We had to fight the Shark for over 45 minutes to get it up to the boat. Great experience, great memories, great pictures..... I will book with Reel Deal from now on, I can’t see a trip to Destin without a fishing trip being part of the plan.

It was absolutely over the top fantastic ! We caught the fish of a lifetime. A 12 foot 500 pound Bull Shark. It took the three of us and the boat captain 35 minutes taking turns to get the fish to the boat. I would surely recommend Captain Zack and the Real Deal to anyone.

It was a great time. Zach was a good captain. We hold a shark but didn't get it to the boat. We'll try again next year.

The big deal is much bigger boat than the reel deal which was a nice upgrade. This was our 2nd trip with this crew & our first trip was much better. We spent way too much time trolling for fish & after an hour caught nothing. We fished for some small snapper but didn’t catch anything bigger than a few pounds. Wife complained about captain smoking constantly. Zach was great & worked hard ! Wished we had more time reeling in fish instead of trolling though

Book more time and hope for a better environment

Our trip was an overall good trip we enjoyed the time fishing and would have liked longer time (we did 4 hours - really two hours of fishing), and earlier in the summer. Anglers on board included me, my husband, my five-year-old son, and my dad. My dad a former military man has had the opportunity to deep sea fish in other parts of the world, and from pictures of his accounts, I feel he was generally disappointed with the small fish, and limited catch. We arrived early, left early and still took over an hour to get to the fishing site (we were told 45 min), we fished and moved and fished and moved, which we know is necessary to stay on top of the fish. My son had a great expereience catching the fish, but the boat was very rocky due to the wind, and I think we were just too late in the summer. The one aspect of the trip that I absolutely did not appreciate and could not reason with was our captain smoking (this was not the owner of the boat or the main captain from what we were told). Yes I understand that he was driving and we were pushing into the wind, but from a customer and healthcare professional standpoint, not only do I not appreciate the smell or the secondhand smoke, but I certainly cannot stand that it was done while my son was present (who noted the smell asked me what it was and told me he didn't like it) and clearly had no means of leaving the vicinity. Along with the fact that my dad has been trying to quit for 10+ years. He will be coming up on his one year mark here in October 2018, the last thing he needed to deal with was smelling, knowing, and fighting cravings while he was supposed to be having a good time. My dad had to lean over the boat twice to vomit during our trip, I contribute a portion of that purpose to the smell the cigarettes.

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!

Captain Steve was excellent with our two Grandsons. They learned while having a great time. It was Joes 60th birthday and all six of us felt right at home!
