For many years our guy’s outing has been fishing along the gulf coast from Panama City to Pensacola FL. This year we were referred to Reel Fun Fishing Charters. Captain Terry’s son Captain John took us out for an amazing afternoon of reeling in red snapper. As you can see in the photo below we were really pleased with our catch which would not have been possible without Captain John’s persistence in finding these fish! After trimming on-site we enjoyed eating some of our catch at J. Michael’s restaurant across the bridge.

My husband and 9 year old son did their Boys Day fishing trip with Reel Fun Fishing Charters and they have nothing but AMAZING things to say about the entire experience. Terry was very patient with having a younger, inexperienced fisherman on board. He made it a fun learning experience for my son. My husband has done this fishing trip every year with his dad since a kid, and agreed that he will be contacting Terry for their next trip in PCB. 5 stars! This trip made my sons vacation, he’s already talking about his next trip he wants to do when we come back! Thank you!!!

We have been fishing with Captain Terry for several years now. We went twice this week and had a great time. The fish were biting as soon as the bait hit the water. We were lucky and even caught a shark and a sailfish! So much fun and we will be back!

I've fished about 15 times over the last 10 years on the reel fun. It's fishing and the fish don't always cooperate but I've never had a bad trip and I have never not had a great time. If the fish aren't biting Terry works extra hard. Fished with him again 8/28 & 8/29. Caught tons of fish including a 7+ ft long shark, several amberjacks, a sailfish and the barracuda in the picture. I would not consider fishing the Panama City Beach area with anyone else.
