Guided by Ryan Amaturo
A note from your Captain: "I was raised in Tampa Florida and fished my entire life. I always dreamt of becoming a captain and taking friends and family to make memories catching a variety of fish! I am very out going and love to see people smile and have a good time on my boat! I have practiced 20 plus years searching for the best locations for your most grand slam experience! Reel Nauti provides all bait, tackle, fishing license, and water to drink. I am a family guy and love to see families come together and catch a variety of fish. I enjoy what I do and hope to give you a life long memory you will never forget!"
Want to escape the Florida heat and cast a few lines after-hours? Join Captain Ryan and enjoy an adventurous night of fishing in Tampa Bay, Florida! Nighttime fishing can be hit or miss depending on the moon phase but catch a full moon or the days around it more specifically and the fishing can be red hot! On these Tampa Bay night fishing adventures you can expect to target some dock lights, unlit bottom structures, fish the channels with live bait or post up by a bridge to target Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and even Tarpon during the summer months! These calm water conditions are perfect for beginner to intermediate fishermen/fisherwomen who are eager to reel something in. Even though there is low light, these trips can be super productive because some fish like to feed at night when predators—especially out of water predators like birds and humans—are less of a threat. Snook are one of these nocturnal feeders that love biting at night! You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Ryan’s 22-foot Skeeter bay boat powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine. This boat is equipped with a GPS, Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Wireless Trolling Motor, and Ice Box. Don’t forget to bring any snacks you might need (Captain Ryan will have bottled waters on board) as well as a cooler with ice to take home your night's catch. Captain Ryan will provide all rods, reels, and tackle, but feel free to bring your own. Captain Ryan catches live bait before the start of each trip, as it’s most effective in these waters, so don’t worry about bait! Captain Ryan will also clean and fillet your fish at the end of each trip. Get ready for an eventful night on the water with Captain Ryan! Read More
Ryan works his tail off, has a deep local knowledge of the bay, always puts us on fish, and is a lot of fun to fish with! Highly recommend if you're looking for a great day of fishing Tampa Bay!
Capt. Ryan was our guide for the Boca Grande Classic tournament for Cystic Fibrosis. He put us on the fish from the beginning and had us catching snook, reds, and trout for two days. It was a great trip and I highly recommend looking him up for your next charter! …
My first experience throwing a line in saltwater was a success thanks to Ryan. We had a blast, catching fish and great conversation. Absolutely recommend. He showed exceptional knowledge and worked hard to make it happen. Thanks for the great trip!
Ryan is an awesome guide! He knew his stuff and he was fun to fish with! I would recommend to anyone.
My fiancée and I went inshore fishing with Captain Ryan this past weekend in Cockroach Bay and we had a blast! If you're looking to have a great time out on the water, then trust me, you wont be disappointed! Captain Ryan is very knowledgeable about the best places to fish, in season fish, best types of bait, fishing rules and regulations and boat maintenance. During our four hour charter we caught over 15 fish and I am happy to say we have learned a lot (oh yea and no bananas on the boat lol)! We will be scheduling another charter soon. Thank you! …
