Reel Easy Charters has been offering fishing trips in Key West and the Florida Keys for over 30 years. Family owned and operated by three generations of conchs, we offer a wide variety of trips on inshore, nearshore, and offshore boats.

“Easy” boat is a 24ft Bay Boat, perfect for six passengers. Captain Jason Wells is at the helm and pilots a safe ride to the fishing grounds. The vessel is powered by 300 HP Mercury Verados and there are state-of-the-art electronics to help find the fish, casting platform and livewell, as well as toilet for your comfort. Safety equipment includes life jackets, flares, VHF radio, and First Aid Equipment.

Reel Easy Charters provides a variety of options for your fishing excursion; the “Easy” vessel fishes the backcountry, flats, and inshore waters. You’ll target the many fish species in the area, including Redfish, Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Tarpon, Permit, Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, and more.

Trips offered on “Easy” include half day (4 hour), 3/4 day (6 hour), and full day (8 hour). The 3/4 day fishing trip is the most popular – as this gives us plenty of time to get to a few grounds and cast a lot of lines. Everything you need for a great day of fishing is provided.

A fishing trip is a perfect excursion for any family or group. If your group is more than 6 passengers, please let us know as we are happy to coordinate multiple boats. Your group can still stay together while fishing from more than one boat, and even make a little tournament out of it if you’d like!

Remember to bring sunblock, sunglasses, drinks, and lunch for your day on the water. All rates include license, bait, tackle, rods, boat, captain, and cooler with ice. Get ready for a great day of fishing, and book with Reel Easy Fishing Charters today!

  • Go with the best or don't go.

    Created Charles V

    Captain John knows the Keys and the honey holes. We were scheduled to go to Marquesas key but due to windy and choppy seas had to call an audible. He put us on the fish and we had such a good time that we r goin back in late May to jump on some big tarpon. He will hook u up!!

  • Great trip

    Created Mason W

    Top of the line boat and equipment, friendly captain that knows where the fish are. He even put me on my first permit!

  • Awesome

    Created Susanne E

    Captain John of Reel Easy was real awesome. Highly recommend this charter - great guy, great fishing, great day!!

  • Key West's BEST!!!

    Created Paul W

    Captain John Jackson is an unbelievable charter captain. I've booked fishing charters with other Key West captains , but never again. A friend told me about John ,I booked a full day with John and he had me out and hooked up with fish on the line faster than it took other captains to call and tell me they were running "a little late" that morning. Johns knowledge of Key West water is amazing. His fish finding skills has given my family the best charter experiences of our life. I've been out with him many times over the years and I'll never use anyone else. He has a beautiful boat its always been clean and is super fishable. Thx Capt.John for all the great memories and trophies. See u soon !!!

  • my best fishing trip ever...

    Created David F

    I came down to Key West with a bunch of buddies and booked a full day with Capt. John Jackson. What a great experience! He had us from the marina to the hot spots in 15mins. In no time we were banging up the tarpon. He kept us on the action the whole time. And when the tarpon slowed down, he cranked up the boat and put us right on top of the permit. The guy knows his business and is willing to show his guest a great time. Capt Jackson has all "top of the line" gear so leave yours at home. His Yellowfin boat is quiet and comfortable. I plan on getting back down to the Keys soon just so I can book another trip with Capt. Jackson. He is a professional in every sense of the word and I would recommend you to all of my friends.

  • great back country fishing

    Created ken m

    Captain john jackson redeemed my previous experiences with keys fishing guides. April 2012, he provided our party with two of the best days of fishing ever - day 1: 11 permit, 1 sail, mahi,triple tail, a 9' silky shark AND 2 for 4 on permit; day2: 4 lemon shark, countless snapper. Feb. 2014, John had my son-n-law, 8yr old grandson and 12yr old couzin Katherine out for fun day of snapper and grouper fishing. Had over 30 fish and the kids loved him. Whether you're hard core experienced or a preteen novice, John Jackson (Reel Easy Charters) is your man

    I fish out of Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix, La..Truly, The Sportsman Paradise....But in Key West fishing with Capt John Jackson is an over-the-top fishing experience. Especially the day Capt John put my friend John Michel on a World Class 491/2 inch Permit fish....WOW!!!!!! We've had nothing but fun and excitement fishing with Capt John....

  • Well worth the trip!

    Created Steve W

    I have made the trip to Key West to fish with Capt. John each of the last five years and have already booked this year! The time I spend fishing with John and my two sons is definitely a highlight. John is the hardest working guide in the business, and he knows his stuff. We primarily fish for Tarpon but have caught Permit, Goliath Grouper, Cobia, Snapper and Sharks. Fishing with John in Key West is a trip you will remember!
