Reel Cast charters operates 3 boats including a Conch 27 which was designed by a group of professional fishing guides from Key West, FL and a world-renowned naval architect. The Conch 27 is widely considered to be the most capable boat under 30 feet and is the only boat that is truly designed for fishing guides. It is capable of fishing both inshore and offshore. The boat only draws 16 inches of water, yet can ride through rough seas and is extremely stable at drift. The Conch is powered by a single 300 Suzuki four stroke and has a top speed of 45 mph. The boat has 200 gallons of live-well space making it the ultimate boat for live bait fishing. This is a boat you must fish on to believe it! Our boats meet all U.S. Coast Guard Safety regulations and are equipped with the latest and greatest electronics from Humminbird: Mega Side & Down Imaging, Chirp Sonar, radar, and Minn Kota trolling motor with I-pilot link & Spot Lock technology. We use the best rods, reels & line available from Shimano, G Loomis, and Power Pro.
