Our fishing adventure with Captain Jamie and Mate Aiden was outstanding! There's nothing like being out on Casco Bay on a hot summer day fishing for stripers. And we found some! These guys know their stuff and would surely recommend them!

We had such an awesome morning with Captain Jamie and Reel Action. Our kids (7 and 5) had never been fishing off a boy before and they had the best experience!! They caught tons of fish and loved every minute. He also made a special point to take us to take a family photo in front of the light house and to show us the seals. Amazing family time in the water.

Captain Jamie was AWESOME! He took our whole family on a 2 hour family fishing trip and we caught lots of pollock, and then a HUGE bass! It was so much fun and he was a great teacher for the two kids we had with us. He was super friendly and just a lot of fun to be around. He made sure we caught fish and had a great trip. Would definitely recommend booking a trip with him - we can’t wait to book our next trip!

Myself, the hubby, our adult son and 3 of our grand-children, ages 10, 11, and 12 had a great time today aboard the Reel Action with Captain Jaime and Mate Aiden.Captain Jaime met us at the dock right on time and he and Aiden were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. They were so welcoming that we felt safe and right at home from the get-go. Jaime told us some of the history of the area as he pointed out places of interest as we motored along to the fishing grounds which were not too far at all.Before we knew it it was time to fish and boy did we ever!The kids caught Mackerel like crazy and then Jaime moved us a little further out and 3 of us caught Strippers!!We highly recommend Reel-Action. We could not have had a better time. I hope we can fish with them again in the future!

Captain Jamie came in clutch for us - we needed a charter for 5 for next day and he made it happen. Me and 4 other buddies from a bachelor party had an awesome time hanging with him and catching mackerel and stripers all morning. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a first class charter experience and 100% will be booking with him again when I’m back in town.

Awesome experience, awesome crew. They genuinely want you to catch as many fish as possible. It pains them when they're not biting.Lucky enough that Captain Jamie kept with it and found us a hot spot where stripers were hooking up for us despite a generally slower day for many other boats.Gave us the perfect amount of guidance and insights and just set a great tone and mood for the trip.Highly recommend, no pun intended, we're hooked. Will absolutely be back.

We had such a great experience here! The guys on the boat were encouraging, fun, and super respectful! There were just two of us on our boat, and both of us are women. We immediately felt comfortable and encouraged and it was a relaxing experience overall. These are totally guys I'd go hang with and have a beer with after it was all said and done. We caught some fish, had a great time, and I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to book a fishing trip.

We had fishing charter today with Reel Action and it was amazing. We took our sons - 5 and 6 and Jamie and Aiden were wonderful with them. They taught my kids about fishing, random facts about Maine, and answered all of their 100000 questions. :). It was about a 40 minute drive from Ogunquit and we’ll worth it. We will definitely do this again next summer since it’s been a highlight of our week here. I cannot recommend Reel Action enough - you won’t regret it and will definitely be a repeat customer.

I've gone twice with Jamie and Ayden and each time these guys have given the best experience. First time was a month ago with a friend that had never fished in his life and we caught striped bass (I think it made him a new recruit to the sport of fishing) and second with my brothers a few days ago, where on a humid day that we should have had trouble getting any action...we still ended up getting 7 striped bass and losing a few as well. I can only say these guys put a lot of effort into your fishing experience and Captain Jamie and Ayden works hard to get you on the fish. Their vibe is fantastic and I'll be honest..after going on many charter fishing boats in the area...I would booking with them from now on....just great guys and the whole experience was fantastic from start to finish...I recommend them highly for a great time on the water.

If you’re looking for a fun fishing outing on a lovely boat with experienced fishermen, look no further than Reel Action Charters. Captain Jaime and his crew know Maine waters well, have years of experience under the belts, and they’ll guide you through a beautiful and fun day of catching fish. Captain Jaime is especially kind and patient with kids, and our son and niece were able to reel in mackerel after mackerel. Thank you for a beautiful day, Reel Action!

We took this trip on Short notice. Captain was upfront and honest about expectations. However he exceeded them in every way. Didn’t catch a million fish but wasn’t board at all. Worth every penny. We are a couple from Florida who are on the water all the time. I would suggest taking this for a whole day.

I am a local to South Portland for the past few years now, so when my family came up to visit I had many options of charter boats to do a mid day cruise around the bay and past the lighthouses. Jamie was recommended to me by many other locals that have had amazing experiences out on the water. Eventhough this was a casual trip and not a fishing tour, it did not disappoint!! He was very responsive over texts prior to the trip to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted to ensure he knew my exact plan and what I wanted my family to see. His boat is extremely clean and had plenty of room for all of us. As we cruised past the islands he explained all the different landmarks and did a little history lesson which was pretty cool. If you're looking for a great day out on the water, choose Reel Action!!

My family and I had an amazing charter with Reel Action for my birthday. We were lucky enough to get squeezed into a 4 hour slot last minute (less then 24 hour in advance). They took us over to Portland Headlight to catch our bait fish (and even got some amazing photos with the lighthouse in the background). Had some big fish biting even though I caught the only one (can't blame them for that as it is all part of it), but everyone enjoyed themselves, including my mother who had no interest in fishing and my wife who was happy just catching bait fish. Spent a lot of the time talking with the first-mate, Dylan, who was telling us all about the area (the different islands, about different aspects of life for commercial fishing, talking about the different shifts in the area he has seen). He was really helpful and would tell us where a good spot to cast our line out to would be, or even cast it their for us since my wife has never fished before, and walk us through step by step to give us the best chance at landing something.In short, Reel Action is a great company to get a fishing charter through even if everyone going isn't really into fishing.

We had a great quick and early morning charter on Reel Action! My three boys each caught a striped bass and were in great hands with Jamie and Dillon. We’ve chartered many inland fishing trips and this was the best one yet! Dillon is a GREAT first mate and Jamie knew the perfect spot to catch our fish. The Portland harbor and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and the crew pointed out all of the important landmarks. They even gave us a great recommendation for breakfast after the charter. A top notch experience all around and we couldn’t recommended a charter on Reel Action enough!

A few days ago my boyfriend and I went shark fishing with the Reel Action Charters crew. It was a once in a lifetime experience we will never forget! Jamie was super responsive and informative with all questions leading up to the trip. He and Dylan were very welcoming and warm when we first arrived and this only continued throughout the day as we all got to know each other. During the actual point of shark fishing on the trip they directed us step by step, jumped in to help when needed, and offered encouragement and laughs along the way. Both of us caught sharks. I highly recommend you schedule a ride and catching day with Reel Action Charters!

Captain Jamie surpassed all expectations across the board. His vast knowledge of the coastal Maine waters along with his ability and willingness to adapt to the goals of our group made our experience top notch! We have chartered with Reel Action for both family and friend outings and each experience was full of age appropriate adventure! We can’t wait for more opportunities to hit the waters again with Captain Jamie and Reel Action!

Holy mackerel! We had such a good morning out with these guys. We started with mackerel fishing just off Portland head light to catch bait. Then, onto striper fishing for the rest of the morning around Casco Bay. It was a slow striper morning, we only caught four but the banter between our group and the Crew made the day wicked fun!

We fished with Jamie on a haddock fishing charter on July 28. The trip was awesome to say the least. We traveled about an hour to his spot. We caught fish from the first drop until we we headed back in to the docks. We ended up with just shy of 100 haddock, 4 large whiting, a cusk, and a cod. Dillon, the mate was great also. We were very well taken care the whole time. Can't wait to go again.

We had such a fun charter out with the Reel Action crew - and we caught a lot of fish! The weather wasn’t ideal but we had a blast. They showed us the ropes and took us to the ideal spots to catch bait fish (largely mackerel and up to four on the line at a time!) and then stripers - we caught some beauties and learned a lot in the process. We can’t wait to do a tuna charter with them! Thank you and until next time - Erin & Nick
