The Reel Time Boat
The Reel Time is a 1990 Sonny Raines 31 foot custom Carolina boat built locally in Morehead City. With a nearly 12 foot beam and a spacious cockpit this is one of the largest 31 footers you can fish on. There is plenty of seating away from the sun and weather to keep you rested and dry while running to and from the fishing grounds. She is powered by a single 6 cylinder Isuzu diesel engine and has up to date Garmin electronics. Life raft, EPIRB, satellite messaging, and all required safety equipment are on board. There is also a full head in the cabin.
This is an owner operated boat. Capt. Cody Garner is going on year four in the charter business officially going full time in 2021. While not from Carteret county originally Cody has experience fishing with with other operations down the coast and locally. Jonathan Miller has been mating on the boat for almost two years now. Miller was raised on the crystal coast and has fished out of Atlantic Beach his entire life. Holden Brown is a Senior at West Carteret High and in his second year of full-time fishing. The three work together great as a team and will create a fun, friendly atmosphere for you and your party.
