March thru July we offer sunset and split day tarpon trips, and at anytime of the year we will help customize your trip to get you on the water at the best time and tide to offer you the greatest opportunity at success.

“Reel Easy” boat is a 24ft Bay Boat, perfect for six passengers. Captain Jared Gulas 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. Safety equipment includes life jackets, flares, VHF radio, and First Aid Equipment.

Trips offered on “Reel 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.

At Reel Easy Charters we strive to maintain competitive rates while still offering premium professional guide services. There’s no better Key West fishing guide service and we have earned a reputation for providing our customers an incredibly memorable day of fishing!

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!

  • Great Guide!

    Created Jaimie F

    On my most recent fishing trip last week with Reel Easy Charters Captain Jason led us to the fish. I saw a large Tiger Shark, which was a first for me and we could have caught Yellow Jacks all day long. We added mangrove and yellow tail snappers to our dinner plates that night as well. Captain Jason was a great guide and very knowledgeable about the area and the different types of fish we hooked. I look forward to my next trip.

  • Best Capt Anywhere!

    Created Jim G

    Capt John Jackson ALWAYS catches fish and is NOT A JERK!! He is always friendly, engaging, and helpful. He works hard to make sure your fishing adventure is fun and action packed. I have fished with John about 8 times over the last 10 years and will continue to! His boats have always been state of the art, comfortable and fast. Go with John - you will NOT be disappointed! Calm water and tight lines!

  • Tarpon fishing

    Created Jack L

    It was the best Trip I have ever been on. It's simple, if you want to catch big tarpon call Capt. Jackson. He also has many other opportunities on many other game species of fish. You have a 100% chance to catch fish with him.

  • Fabulous Experience!

    Created Anthony C

    I setup a day of fishing with John and he delivered. John is an easy going guy with a fun loving personality. And he knows his fishing! It was late February and I asked him if we could try for Tarpon despite being early in the season! Well, we found them! Caught 5, jumped 9! All by 1 pm! I highly recommend John for an incredible day of fishing in Key West!

  • Great fishing experience!

    Created Emily B

    We had a great time fishing! The weather wasn't ideal, so that made the boat ride a little bumpy and the wind made it a little chilly, but that didn't stop it from being a great day! Three of us were fishing and we all caught multiple fish - groupers, snappers, a yellow tail, and a nurse shark. Jason was helpful and nice to be around. We've had some guides that have such a miserable attitude it detracts from the experience, but that was certainly not the case here. It seemed like he was having as much fun as we were. An awesome 8 hours of fishing!

  • Fishing in Key West

    Created Jeffrey S

    I have been fishing for over 20 years several times a year in Key West. I understand all of the species, when they run and how to fish for them. My son is 11 and has been fishing with me on many of those trips since he has been 5. Captain John Jackson has taught my son everything from the first cast, to his most recent accomplishment of Master Angler. He has taught him about patience, conservation of fish populations and protecting our environment. He has help create a stronger relationship between father and son. There is no more knowledgeable captain in the keys.

  • Great fishing trip

    Created Rick P

    Went fishing again for the seventh annual father son fishing trip to Key West with one of the best Captains, Captain John Jackson from Hurricane Hole Marina We also were down for the awards banquet for the Key West Fishing Tournement, held annually where the boys won some amazing awards, thanks to Captain John. Thank again Captain for another perfect trip

  • Best Guide I've ever used

    Created Chuck A

    I have used Reel Easy two times over the past couple years and by far Capt John is the best guide I have used. I have fished all over the US and Central America and always talk to friends about my Key West trips. Planning another trip in January of 16...I better book now.

  • Reel Easy Charters

    Created Britt D

    Captain John did a phenomenal hob of putting us on the fish. I was just interested in shark to begin with but we caught tarpon,cohiba,grouper and a bunch of other fish. Plus 7 sharks on top of that including an 8 foot bull shark hooked in 2.5 feet of water. John knows where the fish are and how to put you on them. Cant say enough good things.

  • Great Day Lobstering and Fishing w Capt John

    Created Rick N

    Great time on the water wwith Capt. John Jackson during Lobster Season. Capt John ensured we hit our limit each day and we even had time to head to the ocean and catch our limit of Mangrove Snapper. THE BEST FISHING GUIDE IN THE KEYS who makes sure your happy at the end of the day! (and the best boat too)
