The REEL BRATT is a DNR and Coast Guard Licensed and inspected vessel, fully insured.  This vessel is equipped with the latest fishing gear to make the most out of your fishing charter. The boat cabin is equipped with a private restroom, running water, a table, and room to store your belongings out of the weather.

    The Captain supplies all the bait, tackle, and technique. We even clean your fish and bag them when you are done fishing. The Captain can also teach you to how to set up rods, baits and net fish to get you more involved if you wish, or just sit back and reel in fish.
