The temperate waters of the Gulf of Mexico provide a year-round bite, no matter when you’re looking to plan your trip The Reef Chief Charters will put you on the fish!

 

You’ll be led by Captain Mike Teegarden, a lifelong angler with a passion for helping others catch the trophy fish they’ve always dreamed about! Captain Mike is great with kids, first time anglers, and veteran anglers alike. He’ll work with you to find out what your group was hoping to catch, and season dependent, he’ll make it happen!

 

Top of the line fishing tackle, bait, and a fishing license for all on board is included in the cost of the trip. All you need to bring is sun protective gear, any drinks or snacks you may want, and an eager attitude! On your fishing trip with The Reef Chief Charters the season and your group’s preference will determine which species you’ll be targeting. Some of the bottom dwellers you’ll find tugging on the other end of your line are Grouper, Red Snapper, Hogfish, Mangrove Snapper, Sharks, Kingfish, Amberjack, and so much more!

 

The Reef Chief is a well maintained 36ft Sea Hawk with a 14ft wide beam. She’s an incredibly stable vessel, her wide beam greatly reduces the side to side rocking of the boat which often causes sea sickness. The spacious cockpit provides plenty of room to comfortably fish up to 6 anglers at once, everyone in your group will have a chance to reel in their trophy catch! A fiber glass roof extends over the deck to provide plenty of shade, and inside you’ll find a private restroom.

 

Safety is the number one priority while out on the water with The Reef Chief Charters, the crew holds current CPR certifications and the vessel’s been outfitted with the most up to date safety equipment.

The ample waters of the Port Richey are calling your name… There’s a 20lb grouper just waiting for you to drop your line! Captain Mike and the The Reef Chief Charters team will take the guess work out of your fishing trip. Mike will guide you to his seemingly limitless list of honey holes where the fish are always biting. All you have to do is keep your rod tip up and reel!
