Reel Bandit Characters

Offshore fishing is the name of the game at Reel Bandit Characters. Head out from Pompano Beach to take advantage of the Gulf Stream’s impact on the fishing environs. Here you’ll find many migratory species that can grow into enormous sizes. Captain Scott Young will make sure that you get the most out of every trip. Having fished since childhood, he just loves getting on the water and getting fish on the boat, and can’t wait to get you hooked too.

You’ll sail the open seas aboard a classy, well-equipped 46’ Hatteras offshore sportfishing boat. As the name goes, it was designed for offshore. Your comfort comes first, with a full bathroom including a toilet and shower on board, and a kitchen to use at your leisure. Powered by two Detroit turbo engines, you’ll be on the deep seas in no time, getting acquainted with the fish beneath you thanks to top-of-the-range navigational equipment.

On overnight trips, you’ll reach Bahaman seas. The waters are deeper, and the fish are bigger. You’ll target the highly-prized Marlin for a fantastic workout and an even better story to tell. You’ll be provided with plenty of rods and reels, and you can make use of the downriggers and outriggers to make your catch. Just let the captain know if you’d like some live bait.

Whether it’s action you’re after, or a relaxing time away from land, Reel Bandit Characters has it all. This luxurious vessel has plenty of inside space, complete with AC for you to cool off. Just bring your own food and make use of the kitchen facilities to stay well nourished throughout your trip. Everyone is welcome aboard, so you can even bring the kids along and get them hooked too. What’s stopping you? Get booking and head out to sea now!

    This mammoth trip will take you all the way to the Bahamas, so don't forget to bring your passport. Naturally, the longer time spent on the water, the better chance you have of reeling in a fish. But you'll also get to target even bigger fish the further offshore you go. Amazing pelagic species inhabit the Caribbean waters, and you'll be going after the exciting Marlin and Spearfish, as well as the delicious Mahi Mahi and Blackfin Tuna.

    A 6-hour trip enables you to head that little bit further offshore to take advantage of the migratory fish population passing through near Florida's eastern coast. The exceptional Marlin can be caught here, providing an outstanding struggle, along with delicious Mahi Mahi and Blackfin Tuna, among others, for you to reward yourself with a delicious meal at the end of the day.

    Head out to the nearshore reefs off the western coast of Florida. These waters are close to the Gulf Stream and reap the benefits of the migratory fish population passing through, so you'll be hunting King and Spanish Mackerel, among others such as Mahi Mahi.

    A special evening trip to catch the late bite is the perfect way to round off any day. You'll get to take in the harbor lights, dazzling on the water, as you stay inshore. Around Christmas time, the lights are even better, and you're encouraged to bring your own booze and drink responsibly. While fishing, you'll target some of the best inshore game fish around, like Tarpon and Snook.

I grew up on a boat and fishing with my Dad and have always had a passion for fishing and being on the water since then. I have been a Nautical Captain for over 20 years, and love getting on the water and helping people reel in as many fish as possible. I started Reel Bandit in 2013, with the aim of passing on my passion just as my Dad did to me. I have also provided burial at sea and hosted several wedding ceremonies.
