5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Weedy conditions made the outlook appear sour, but Captain Kunta made a move from the crowd to find good fishing. With a slow start the crew tried multiple techniques and created a very strong finish. I have been on charters from the Bahamas to Gloucester, Mass and these guys are top notch.

“Fish Fish Fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Great trip with caption. Kunta on Real Appeal. Caught loads if dolphin with a few kingfish mixed in. One Mahi was close to 40lbs, the largest I've ever seen! Lost a giant hammerhead as well that snapped the rod in half. Great guys on the boat, lots of knowledge to make the experience pleasurable

“Best Experience for a Newbie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

What a great time with Reel Appeal. We caught more fish than any other boat in the area. The conversations were engaging and we had plain fun. Can't wait to return to Fort Lauderdale and charter again with these guys.

We love taking families and friends out deep sea fishing for their first time. We kind of relive the moment as if it were our first time as well. Nothings better than being able to share stories and my evperience with new people everyday. We here at Reel Appeal enjoy what we do and want everyone to enjoy themselves with us out at sea when they want to go fishing in Fort Lauderdale.

“Great Day Of Fishing And My First Catch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Our daily walks had taken us past a dock of pastel painted charter boats and captains looking for tourists willing to spend a full or partial day testing their luck out in the Atlantic. They tell of Snapper, Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Sharks and more waiting to be caught. We are always up for an adventure and catching enough dinner for the next few nights sounds right up our alley. The crew of the “Reel Appeal” seem like they’re at the dock every evening we walk by and when you come across someone is that ambitious you have to give them a shot.

Captain Richard gave us a great tour of surrounding waterfront homes on the way out while Jeff cut up the bait and readied the 9 fishing lines and we set out hoping to get a bite. The captain stayed in the radio talking with other boats all looking for the best fishing spot. We sat back and enjoyed a beer and a hard cider, supplied by the boat, between catching fish.

These guys are hard working and worth your dollar. It was the first time I had ever been fishing and they made sure I would land myself a nice fish. It was a fun and exciting day.

I love taking out first timers. I've said it before and I'll say it again. There's nothing better then helping someone by instructing them on cstching their first fish. Especially if its a big one. We aim to entertsin and please to the fullest. We're here year round making fishing dreams come true!

“Reel Appeal is the Real Deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

This was our families 1st experience on a Charter boat and our experience made us hungry for more! The crew was awesome! They worked HARD to make our fishing experience a success. Captain Kunta and his first mate were an amazing team together. Captain telling his stories and answering all of our families questions from who owns that house, yacht, etc.... to many questions about fishing in the ocean. They had knowledge of it all. We laughed, dodged rain clouds, caught fish and enjoyed a beautiful vessel. It was a perfect day and one that we plan to repeat with this crew again someday!
