About "Reel Work"

Fort Lauderdale Sport Fishing

The REEL WORK Charter Sportfishing Boat

The REEL WORK is a customized 45 foot Hatteras Sportfish with a tuna tower. This style of boat is one of the best built for the conditions that we face on a normal basis. It has an air conditioned salon, roomy cockpit and flybridge, and clean restrooms. We have a wide variety of tackle for all of the different types of fishing available, and maintain it on a regular basis. From bait fish to large game fish, first time anglers to seasoned veterans, the “REEL WORK” crew can get the job done right. They are well trained, helpful, and ready to do what it takes to make your time on the water as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Your Charter Fishing Captain

My name is Capt. Walter “Wally” Shaw and I am the captain of the Sportfishing yacht “REEL WORK”. I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, and have been fishing for as long as I can remember. My dad had a boat when I was a kid and he took me fishing whenever he could. If I wasn’t fishing with my dad, I would fish in the canals and lakes around the neighborhood. As my friends and I got older, we started fishing on the local piers and the bridges in the Keys. After a few years we would occasionally go out on the drift fishing boats, in between our other fishing excursions. That was when I really started to get into fishing on the boats. A couple of years later I was offered a part time job on one of the drift boats. I took the job because not only would I get paid to fish, but I could fish for free whenever I wanted to, which was between five and eight trips a week. After six or so years I started getting offers to work on the charter boats and began fishing as a full time job. I worked my way through the ranks, learning from some of the best captains in Fort Lauderdale, from part to full time mate, then from part to full time captain. Now I have my own boat, and still enjoy the time that I spend on the water.
