Reel Candy Sport Fishing Charter Services
Our vessel “Reel Candy” is based at one of the most picturesque locations in Southern Florida, right opposite the historic Jupiter Lighthouse in the Jupiter Inlet. Reel Candy can be found in Jupiter Inlet Marina located behind the New U-Tiki Beach Restaurant, 1096 A1a Jupiter, which, coincidentally, is the ideal place to celebrate after a successful day out sport fishing with Captain Marvin Steiding. As a US and Bahamian licensed charter service, we offer Sailfish charters from the Sailfish Capital of the world, Stuart and Jupiter; as well as going further afield with some sport fishing charters going to the Abaco’s, Old Bahama Bay, San Salvador, and pretty much throughout the Islands of the Bahamas during Marlin season.
Reel Candy Sport Fishing Charters have been fishing in the Jupiter area for many years and have also been providing licensed fishing charter services to many visitors of the Abaco’s where we have been fishing longer than any other foreign fishing charter service that is permitted to fish in the idyllic Abaco’s area.
Jupiter Inlet, Florida
We believe your best fishing memories will start when you exit the Jupiter Inlet into the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the luxurious Reel Candy. Whatever the season and wherever you come from in the US adventures in deepblue sport fishing changes monthly offering our anglers an opportunity to catch a variety of species in the ideal environment. Indeed we have many return fishermen (and women) coming from as far afield as Davidsonville, MD, and Broken Arrow, OK.
Sailfishing Along Sailfish Alley
Sailfish Season’s premier months are between November and January each year and the Sailfish usually start showing up along the Southeast coast of Florida in October when the Florida weather is in the high 70′s or low 80′s what could be better? They usually don’t normally start to migrate further south until the warmer weather comes.
Stuart, is known as The Sailfish Capital of the World where when you head south it’s waters create the famed “Sailfish Alley” here in Jupiter. During Sailfish Season you can easily have multiple hook ups and reap the rewards. Being based in Jupiter it puts us closer to the fish giving you the maximum time doing what you love best….sailfish trolling or kite fishing!
Unlike other species of fish, South Florida is lucky to still maintain a stock of good sized Atlantic Sailfish with 2012-2013′s fish coming in anything between 50 and 75 lb’s, may not seem that big to some of you experienced fisherman but boy do they put up a fight!
Sport fishing in The Bahamas
Come Tuna Season, Reel Candy starts our Tuna trips at the beginning of April and we are always looking for the birds that help us in our quest. Dolphin or Mahi Mahi, can also be found while trolling for Yellowfin or Blackfin Tuna. It’s also an excellent time to encounter White and Blue Marlin. The Tuna run will usually last well into September where Yellowfin Tuna average around 40 lbs with the occasional encounter of MUCH larger fish. Pound for pound, Tuna fight extremely hard but the reward being very tasty.
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
The Mahi range from anywhere between 5 lb’s and 70 lb’s. The trip from the Jupiter Inlet to the Bahama Bank where we begin your fishing experience is only 2 – 3 hours so it’s probably closer than you think! Our most popular sport fishing charters are the 2-3 day trips while the lucky few are able to take advantage of our customized long weekend charter going out on a Friday and returning from Old Bahama Bay or Rosie’s Place in Grand Cay, Abacos on the Monday. Where you won’t just experience some of the best sport fishing of your life but you will relax in a true tropical island paradise. Bring your camera!
If we are fully booked and you decide to book elsewhere it is important to make sure your charter selection is a properly licensed vessel and able to fish in the Bahamas.
Catch Big Marlin
Billfish Season begins in March with White Marlin and Sailfish also being caught, while April is the start of the Blue Marlin Season and May- June being the major Blue Marlin months in the Abacos.
As the Marlin begin to migrate South we offer customized charters from Harbour Island and San Salvador through late June and July. Click on our “TLC’s Little People Big World” on this page above to view our Blue Marlin video or click on our videos link to the right to see some of our Blue Marlin catches.
Bahamas Wahoo Season
Wahoo season begins in October and runs through April. In season it is common to catch Wahoo in the 40 – 70 lb range. Wahoo are considered one of the fastest fish in the ocean and one of the best eating fish. Custom Fishing Programs and ALL INCLUSIVE trips are available in the Abacos, fishing from Jupiter to Old Bahama Bay. Special packages are available in February and March to fish San Salvador for Wahoo, some topping the scales at over 100 pounds.
If you are looking for a Bahamas Fishing Charter we are available for special customized trips in Marsh Harbour, Treasure Cay, Abacos, and of course Old Bahama Bay Bahamas.
"I will surely recommend friends and family to you!"
Hello my name is Justin, my father and I went fishing with you guys on April 3, 2014. I had a blast fishing with the two of you. I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to hook up to a fish of a lifetime. I will surely recommend friends and family to you when they are in the area. Thank you again.
"I would have to say that it was a trip of a lifetime!!"
We have fished with Marvin on 3 different occasions. His knowledge of the waters has always put us on fish. The last trip was truly amazing as my son and I caught a 7 foot sailfish as well as a dozen mahi. I would have to say that it was a trip of a lifetime!! The boat is beautiful and spotless and the mates are absolute pros. I HIGHLY recommend Reel Candy Charters for anyone looking to catch fish and enjoy the blue water of Jupiter Florida.
"Thank you and I plan on using the team again in the future!"
Marvin, Had a great time. Chris and Eric were very engaging. The guy I took along had a million questions and your team answered all with an awful lot of patience. I was asking the guy to shut up, fish and quit distracting the team!! Thank you and I plan on using the team again in the future as my son has moved to the area – he is a boat mechanic!
"From start to finish team Reel Candy made our stay in Abaco one to remember."
Putting us on a beautiful 500+ pound marlin was beyond expectations and will certainly be a life memory. You did an outstanding job working the boat during my hour battle with that beast and Greg's coaching, encouragement and clean release were a testament to his dedication, skill and love of the sport. Comfortable, clean, efficient boat plus professional, skilled, friendly captain and mate plus big fat marlin - Can't go wrong with that formula! We'll certainly see you again next year. Tight Lines

Shrimp with Cilantro and Lime Cilantro and lime make this simple shrimp dish outstanding. Serve this over rice or with a salad. Shrimp is one of my favorite skinny foods to cook with.
