Subject: Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Back Bay reopens March !st!
Seems like forever since I have wet a line or posted a report but we are only a few weeks away from launching the 2017 Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters Season . With the winter being as mild as it has been I anxiously look forward to the start of the season with a target date of March 3 and 5th.
As always we will be targeting resident stripers with light spinning tackle while mixing in some winter flounder fishing when the opportunity presents itself.
The winter of 2011-2012 was another mild winter that lead to an amazing striped bass fishery that continued all winter long right into the spring and early summer
These early season trips have always been a fun way to get the season started and shake the cabin fever blues/doldrums but not a cooler filling opportunity. Stripers ranging from 12″ to 24″ inches are the typical sizes with our best season opener total catch seeing over 100 stripers caught in 4 hours for 4 anglers!
We will be utilizing brand new Penn SpinfisherV 3500 series light spinning tackle to maximize sport and fun on these smaller size bass but more than capable if any surprises are encountered.
Another great way to get into fishing mode is to Stop by the Southern Regional High School’s fishing Flea for some really great tackle deals. I’ll be attending and look forward to talk fishing as well.
So come on and dust of the Grundens and UnderArmour and join us to welcome the 2017 season. Don’t wait for the fishing report , be the fishing report!!
Reserve your fishing date today for the 2017 fishing season aboard the Reel Fantasea!! We are already booking into the Fall!!
Remember to join us and like us on Face book to get latest reports, pics, videos and trip information.
Wishing everyone light winds and calm seas,

March Madness is right around the corner and there’s big tuna present down off of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Last week some nice fish hit the dock. Find a weather window and head down to get in on the action. There’s lots of local OBX boats fishing as well as a number of Jersey boys who are in town for the bite each year. Don’t miss out!
In honor of Throwback Thursday we are tossing it back to March 2012… Here’s FishHead.Greg field testing a Penn Spinfisher V Series (aka SSv) in the early stages of development. After putting the 9500 and 10500 series to work we found they are one of the best affordable big game spinning reels available. Stop in and check them out!
