Reel Adventures Trips

Depending on conditions, you might hook into Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Blacktip Shark, King Mackerel (Kingfish), Jack Crevalle, and anything else that bites. Planning a family adventure? Kids are absolutely welcome! For baby life vests please ask ahead of time, these are not typically kept in the boat unless requested. Captain Corey has four kids (two teenagers, and two under the age of five) therefore, he keeps a "Kids Only Snack Stash" on the boat, just remember to send over any allergies ahead of time! Your adventure begins aboard a 23’ Sea Pro center console with a capacity for 6 passengers. It comes with all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself. A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. Mates work hard to make your trip count, so a 10–20% tip is customary. Before coming aboard, you will be required to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect. Don’t leave home without sunscreen, sunglasses, and bottled water. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. Now, come aboard with Reel Adventures and get hooked!

Awesome fishing trip! Booked two days back to back for my boys and extended family, but was canceled on a month out and pushed to Captain Corey. Turned out to be the best thing that could have happened! Captain Corey was super available, coordinated and communicated well in advance, adjusted trips to give us the best experience. First day was slower (cold weather) and he adjusted timing to make it awesome. Limited out second day because of him!!! Haven’t met a team yet that will work as hard as he did to put us on fish and ensure we had fun! Like fishing with family! We will book with him each time from here on out. Thank you.

We had an incredible fishing trip with Corey! Our group of four had a fantastic time, thanks to his expertise and friendly demeanor. Corey made sure everyone had bait on their lines, and he effortlessly adapted to our varying levels of fishing experience. His easy-going nature and knowledge of the sport created the perfect atmosphere for a memorable day on the water. We highly recommend Corey as a fishing guide!

I wanted to take a moment to share my recent fishing experience with anyone who will listen. During my trip, I had the pleasure of being guided by Corey, who I must say was by far the best guide I have ever encountered. Corey's knowledge and expertise not only extended to the fish and the area, but also to boats in general. Within minutes of conversing with him, I felt like I had known him for years. His ability to make me feel comfortable and at ease was truly remarkable. To top it all off, Corey helped me catch the biggest fish I've ever caught! His professionalism, respectfulness, and sense of humor made the trip both enjoyable and memorable. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate him a solid 10 without hesitation. I highly recommend Corey's services to everyone, from seasoned fishermen to novices. Even my wife, who isn't a big fan of fishing, was thoroughly impressed with Cory and his exceptional service. I had initial doubts about today's trip, but thanks to Corey, it turned out to be an incredible experience.

Wow, if I could add 10 stars, that might be enough. Captain Corey was knowledgeable, personable and he offered up a treasure trove of tips and anecdotes that made the time fly. He even gave me great advice on where to get the best local seafood for my dinner. I caught a massive stingray on our outing, which is an experience I won’t soon forget. I highly recommend his guide services, regardless of your skill level. His love for fishing is matched by his expertise. You’ll have a great time, even if the fish aren’t biting. But he seems to know where they are, even when other boats are out of luck!
