reel deal

The REEL DEAL is a 34′ Delta sportfishing boat powered by a 365 horse-powered Yanmar diesel engine.  Licensed to carry up to 6 passengers, this safe, clean, comfortable vessel carries state-of-the-art Furuno GPS bottom-sounder and radar and is equipped with Coast Guard approved safety equipment, EPIRB radio beacon, life preservers, flares, and throwable life ring.  There is a bathroom, tuna tower, outriggers for offshore trolling, fish-fighting chairs, and plenty of seating on board.  Your charter will include everything you need for a day of fishing – all licensing, bait, tackle, rods, and reels.  We provide ice, coolers, and fish cleaning.  All you need to bring with you is your personal food and drink (alcohol okay).  The REEL DEAL is located in Clearwater Municipal Marina at 25 Causeway Blvd Slip #31, Clearwater Beach, FL 33767.


Captain Tucker Reese was born in Macomb, Illinois.  He grew up fishing in the freshwater lakes and streams of the small-town midwest for crappie, bluegill, bass, and catfish.  Always interested in the outdoors, Tucker graduated cum laude in 1998 with a bachelor’s in forestry from Western Illinois University.  Tucker moved to beautiful Clearwater Beach, Florida in 1999 and began working on a charter headboat as a deckhand and then earning his captains license.  After 9 years of working on and running a headboat in the Gulf of Mexico, Capt. Tucker made the switch to a more personalized fishing experience on a private charter vessel which he helmed until 2016 as a 100 ton master captain.  Reel Deal Sportfishing is thrilled to have him on our crew as Captain of the REEL DEAL with his great experience and enthusiasm for fishing!
