Clearwater Inshore Fishing
This trip is for experienced anglers who want to master inshore fishing techniques and have a shot at the famous "inshore slam" (snook, redfish, trout) or to fill the cooler with fish to eat. Target Redfish, Snook, Trout, Grunts, Mackerel, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Grouper. Captain Jason spends all his free time on the water learning fish habits and movements so you can go straight to the fish on the day of your trip. If you have a goal in mind for the day, Captain Jason is more than happy to try and chase down your next trophy, but he is also privy to which species are bitting best, and can help set expectations for you at the dock by providing expert advice on what tactics and species will be best to target that day. You'll be fishing from Captain Jason's 22' Pathfinder powered by a 200HP Yamaha ProV. With the ability to glide through 12 inches of shallow water or head 9 miles offshore, the world is your oyster when you head out, as Captain Jason is able to target fish far off the beaten path. It comfortably fits 4 passengers plus the captain. Its most notable feature is the 10 foot custom scouting tower, which gives Captain Jason the advantage to scout fish from over 40 feet away! This fishing machine comes rigged with a 9" Garmin navigation system, 24V Minnkota iPilot trolling motor, and 2 live wells. And there is dry space to store your personal belongings and a cooler on board to keep your food and drinks cold for the day! All of Captain Jason's trips depart from Wet Lines Bait & Tackle on Seminole Street in Clearwater. You will meet him there where he'll have the boat in the water, loaded with all necessary bait, tackle, and fishing licenses for an epic day of fishing. He will have a cooler filled with ice to keep all of your food and drinks cold. If you plan on keeping your catch, the captain will fillet and bag it for you as well. Captain Jason recommends you bring any food and drink (especially water!) you would like to enjoy on your fishing adventure. Bring what you need to be comfortable outdoors for the length of your trip. Basic items to consider bringing based upon season and weather are sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, rain jacket, windbreaker, sweatshirt, etc. Captain Jason will also be in touch with you the day before your charter to make sure you are properly prepared for your saltwater adventure!

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Me and my wife had a great time. Gage and his first mate Peyton work very well together. We differently recommend them.
Troy S. with Gage B. of Clearwater, Florida
Craig was great 👍. He told us about the history of the area and went above and beyond to get us fish and show us a good time. The tide and weather was definitely against us but he made the best of it. We had a great time. I appreciated everything and I recommend him for your inshore fishing trip. Thanks again Craig.
Levi E. with Craig L. of Clearwater, Florida
Outstanding crew and experience. I highly recommend Captains Luke and Brad.
Michael W. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Great all around guy. Worked hard to find fish for us. Not many keepers but lots of bites and throw backs. Kids had fun.
James S. with Cameron F. of Clearwater, Florida
We had a great time! Thank you both
Cameron L. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Cameron was awesome! Put us in the slot fish we asked for and was super friendly. We’ll be booking him again and again!
Bill S. with Cameron F. of Clearwater, Florida
We had a large group of us that came to FL to go fishing. We needed two boats and want to use the same company for the group. We went with Reel Deal Charters which was a great choice. The captains and first mates on both the boats were great. They got us on the fish right away and they didn't stop working the whole time we were out with them. Would book them again the next time we are in Florida.
COREY W. with Heather H. of Clearwater, Florida
We had a awsom day on the water. We caught fish consistently the whole trip.the captain and mate where very nice and informative. Thank you for the great day . We all enjoyed areself and had a memorable day.
Edward M. with Heather H. of Clearwater, Florida
Hi: Just want to say my friends and I had a great time fishing with CPT and "Toco." hardest working crew on the dock...and they know where the fish are. This adventure was secretly planned by my wife and some unknown conspirators (CPT's wife?). It was indeed a surprise and a rewarding day on the water with a couple gentlemen that know exactly what to do and WHERE THE FISH are! Great time, recommend to all! Ken Dye
Doreen S. with Heather H. of Clearwater, Florida
Great fishing outing. Cameron was great! The boys and I had a great time. We will do it again for sure.
Jose D. with Cameron F. of Clearwater, Florida
Fun time with 3 guys with no experience. Gage and Peyton were completely helpful in making a good fishing day equal. Next trip will be for 6-8 hours! We’ll be back!
Vincent H. with Gage B. of Clearwater, Florida
Fantastic day Luke and Brett were fantastic. They paid special attention to my youngest grandson and he had a blast. I would highly recommend them 10 stars and we can’t wait to book again for bigger and better experiences
Richard R. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Captain Cameron was great. He got us on some fish right away and kept working hard when the bite slowed down. Will definitely go with Captain Cameron again if we get down that way.
Cheng C. with Cameron F. of Clearwater, Florida
Very knowledgable about the area, great guy and lots of fun on water. You can’t go wrong with Captain Nick. Thank you again.
Wyatt P. with Nick H. of Clearwater, Florida
What an awesome trip! Captain Brad is super knowledgeable and was a great help with not only the typical trivia questions but tips and tricks on techniques and your style of fishing. He was willing to work with me on getting a variety of fish but also taking the time to get a tarpon, which was well worth the wait. He was a great coach during the long battle and would've lost it if it weren't for him. The boat was great and would work well for a smaller group. Overall was a fantastic trip. Ill be sure to book Captain Brad again next time I'm in the area.
Jonathan S. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Excellent guide and great fishing. Had a perfect time.
Mike N. with Tyson W. of Clearwater, Florida
We had a great fishing trip in Clearwater Florida. Our captains (Brett and Luke) were very nice and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Brett and Luke. They put us on some King Mackerel that fought like crazy. It was a lot of fun. Ask for Captain Brad.
Rick W. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Brad is a very friendly and experienced captain. He said he would put us on some fish and did exactly that.
Donnie L. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Had an awesome time. Brad is knowledgeable and super friendly.
Heidi H. with Brad D. of Clearwater, Florida
Captain William was very helpful and knowledgeable of the waters. He was very patient with our children answering a lot of questions and instructing them on how to properly fish.
