The team of fellow certified captains share their fishing knowledge and intimacy of local waterways with guests of The Reel Deal Charters.
Their expeditions whisk passengers away on inshore hunts for red drum trout, sheepshead, and sunken pirate ships. Though they promote catch and release, the crew happily fillets and packages fish for future meals or commissions its resident taxidermist to create scale replicas of fish let go.
The Reel Deal's captains also organize trips to search for blue crabs, fish for sharks on a seasonal basis, and explore local beaches and marshes. They also narrate sightseeing tours that pass by Fort Sumter and the USS Yorktown or natural sights such as feasting pelicans and ospreys soaring overhead. All excursions take place aboard fleet of boats that each accommodates up to six passengers with licenses, tackle, and free live bait when available.
