This is my 15th consecutive year of fishing with Capt Troy Mell. I fish with him at least 4 times each year. My first fishing trip with Troy was nothing short of exceptional and each year exceeds the previous year in fantastic fishing. His knowledge of fishing the Keyes, both back country as well as offshore, makes every trip phenomenal. I have recommended him to friends who in turn chartered trips with him for the entire family. Upon returning from their trips they all had nothing but praise for Troy in the way he coached the children as well as adults not familiar with fishing - his patience was noted by all. My plan is to fish with Troy for another 15 years and enjoy his love of fishing and his desire to make every charter enjoyable and successful for his customers. I recommend him for anyone wanting to have a Florida Keyes fishing adventure. Bob Veschi

.. But not a great day, I felt he spent too much of our half-day charter driving around. I know he tried hard but we didn't get a good 'biting' day and it was disappointing. Not his fault the fish don't bite, true, but we were hoping for a much better time than it turned out to be, it's an expensive day no matter what for a family and you're just hoping for a little better experience. He's a great guy and good captain, just not his day maybe.

I accepted an invitation from a friend who fishes with Troy several times a year to come to the Keys and fish for two days in early July. The weather was perfect, the seas calm, partly cloudy skies, and a light breeze on both days. The first day we fished was the outside waters and fished several spots and depths and caught many varieties of fish including a blackfin tuna! The second day Troy took us to the beautiful back country where we caught several more varieties including a 750 lb. bull shark and a tarpon. Captain Troy is friendly, professional, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable about the fish and the area, and works hard to make sure the fishing experience is enjoyable for all. He puts you on fish. I highly recommend Reel Mell-o charters and plan to return to the beautiful Florida Keys and fish with Troy again.

Captain Troy took 2 fellow fishermen and me on a fabulous shallow-water guided trip to Florida Bay south of Flamingo on a perfect, windless, “glass water” day. Our first stop yielded several large Spanish mackerel. Then we turned our attention to Mangrove snapper where we easily caught many of these tasty fish. Captain Troy handled all the details while we caught fish after fish with double hookups common. Upon arriving back at the marina, our fish were cleaned, bagged in ice and readied for the freezer. But not until some of our catch was prepared for us at the Cuban restaurant next to the marina. I highly recommend Reel Mell-O Sportfishing and Captain Troy.
