Types of Fishing

Bottom Fishing: The most common way of fishing techniques, used to catch fish that are found near the sea floor.

Trolling: A method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water behind a boat. Each paid person will take turns reeling in the fish.

Check the ticket descriptions to see what type of fish you are likely to catch on each trip.

Cancellation policy

Customers that cancel more than 48 hours prior to arrival will be charged 1 hours worth of trip time plus a $5 service fee. Cancellations within 48 hours of arrival are not eligible for refund unless the captain has to call off the trip (weather, maintenance, etc.). In this case, another day will be scheduled or the customer may opt for a full refund by the vendor. No refunds will be given once the customer boards the boat. No shows will not be refunded.

    Really tried

    The captain really tried to get us more fish but day was a miss. Other boats had much larger catches in same time period. Left with enough fish for dinner but not enough to really be satisfied.

    Lazy non energetic captain

    Captain Zack was lifeless and didn’t not show any interest in helping us with catching fish. He just gave a bag of cut squid and told hook it and throw it in the water

    Terrible experience

    We knew almost immediately it was not going to be a good fishing trip. There was only ONE young 20 something year old guy running the entire boat. We were told we would bottom fish and troll. He had bait for bottom fishing, but we never once dropped a line to bottom fish. He said we would go 45 miles out but we made the same nonproductive circle over and over. Our dolphin cruise went further out than we did!!! We maybe went out 1-2 miles. He could not answer our questions and did not seem knowledgeable about the area and local fishing. He seemed more concerned about what was on his cellphone than us! We were really looking forward to our fishing trip. It was scheduled on our last day and we had previously walked the docks looking and admiring all the catches the other boats were bringing... read more

    Awesome Trip!!!!

    Booked the shark trip. Captain Zach had no issues putting us on some huge sharks. Took 3 tries but we finally got a 7ft Sandbar shark to the boat. It was massive. Blew the kids mind. Buckle up they at super strong. 30-45 min fight.

    Big Deal fishing with Capt. Zach

    Charter was ready to go on time, Capt Zach was personable, knowledgeable, and kept my family engaged. We trolled, with nominal results, then progressed to bait fishing. He put us on fish, when they stopped biting he moved to other proven spots. We didn't land any whales, but had a lot of action and a great time.

    Great Experience!!!

    I have always been to cheap to book a fishing trip but I did this time at the suggestion of my wife. Man-o-man what a trip, we hooked a Hammerhead Shark that was over 7’ long and 170#. We had to fight the Shark for over 45 minutes to get it up to the boat. Great experience, great memories, great pictures..... I will book with Reel Deal from now on, I can’t see a trip to Destin without a fishing trip being part of the plan.

    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.

    Great trip

    It was a great time. Zach was a good captain. We hold a shark but didn't get it to the boat. We'll try again next year.
