What to Catch Now

Wow, a 44-day red snapper season for the charter-for-hire fleet. This is great news for our charter boats and those customers that fish aboard them. Other than “when does red snapper season open,” we are asked “what else will I be able to catch and keep?”  Although this seems like a simple answer, just about every species in the Gulf of Mexico has a season as well as a size and bag limit. During the month of June, our offshore captains will be able to take our customers fishing for red snapper, vermillion snapper, lane and other snapper species, as well as all shallow-water grouper with the exception of gag grouper. Amberjack are closed during June and July, and triggerfish is closed for the remainder of 2015. No matter how large or small your family or group is, Reel Surprise Charters has a charter boat to fit your needs.  We have charters that carry no more than six people as well as charters that carry up to 32.  Whether you are looking for a charter for your family or company or are an individual looking to go fishing, we can design a trip just for you. June and July are booking fast, so call today to make your reservations!
