Reel Rich Fishing

Capt. Rich Damianos Punta Gorda, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Departing daily from Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda, FL. From Tarpon and Shark to Trout and Snook we target the hottest bite In the world class  waters of Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande and Pine Island Sound and near costal Gulf of Mexico.

Rich Damianos is the Captain of Reel Rich Fishing and is happy to share his passion for fishing with your group! Up to five guests are welcome aboard for the half day (4 hour) or full day (8 hour) inshore/flats trip. We are able to accommodate 4 anglers for the 6hr Tarpon/Shark trip. Tarpon is such fun species to target – and is our most popular trip! If you’ve never experienced the thrill of hooking a Tarpon – book today to experience this amazing adrenaline rush!

Reel Rich Fishing runs a 25ft Center Console with 250HP Suzuki engine. Downriggers are fitted for best possible fishing experience. We are also equipped with GPS and FishFinder to locate the fish. The vessel has a T-Top for shade, and a cooler with plenty of space for your group to get lines in the water. The Nautic Star is loaded with all the fishing and comfort features to make your day one to remember!

On your next Punta Gorda fishing trip with Captain Rich he provides all bait and tackle and will have ice and water in the cooler. You’ll want to bring good polarized sunglasses, a hat or visor, sunscreen and snacks for the day. Be sure to bring a ziplock bag to keep your personables safe; and of course a camera to capture the memories!

Charlotte Harbor is a great place to fish: it’s protected from the gulf by barrier islands is more like being on a large lake than the ocean. We won’t be in 9-10ft swells like the ocean waters, but we may encounter some choppy seas on certain days. If you are sensitive to motion sickness, there are over-the-counter medicines to help any discomfort.

Children are welcome aboard Reel Rich Fishing! Those under six years old are required to wear a life vest at all times. Our goal is to provide your group with a wonderful experience and memories to last a lifetime. If you have any special requests or questions about Reel Rich Fishing services, let Captain Rich know!

See you on the water!
