Book more time and hope for a better environment
about 9 months ago
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.

Great trip

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.

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!

Captain Steve with Reel Deal Charters did an awesome job! He was great with my 9 and 13 year old kids and got us on the fish! I will definitely charter with Captain Steve next time I am in town. Thanks again for a great trip!!!

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

Best Experience you can have with Great Captain!!

Reel Deal Charters lived up to it's name. 5 of us went on a beautiful Tuesday morning with Captain Steve and he did a great job in finding the fish and putting us in the best position to catch a lot of fish taco dinner. We caught King Fish, Shark, and a lot of great Red Snapper. The kicker was getting back to the dock and seeing that we were one of the top 2 boats that caught fish on the dock. Highly recommend Reel Deal Charters and Captain Steve to anyone looking to spend good money on a quality fishing voyage.

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.

Loved our trip and the Captain did great getting us on the fish. Brought lots of fish up but many were out of season. Still loads of fun reeling in some nice ones.

Was very disappointed in our trip. It was our first experience and didnt catch one fish we could keep. When we pulled back up to the dock all the other boats were cleaning their fish. I feel it was a huge waste of money.
