NAPLES, FL FISHING CHARTERS

Urban area surrounded by “non” urban area.

ABOUT THE AREA

The area north of Marco Island up towards Naples is made up of backcountry bays and creeks and the beachfront where it all meets the clear green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The area that I fish the most is the beachfront, where, in the Summer months, have tons of snook that swim back and forth along the beach in the crystal clear water. This same time of year, the tarpon also are in town. As they migrate north, you can intercept them with a fly, where, once hooked, they can run and jump for what seems like miles!

TYPES OF FISHING

Snook Fishing

Snook are an awesome creature. They chase flies or plugs down with reckless abandon and once hooked they run and jump and do their best to get back to the trees where their safety net is, your job is to keep them away… They range in size from small to really large, you may catch some smaller fish, that are plenty fun, to a fish over 15 lbs that will make your heart race and your knees shake.

Redfish

Redfish are just a great all around awesome fish. They roam around in shallow waters and are eager to take a fly or a jig. They are bulldogs, they fight and pull hard and sometimes you wonder if they’ll ever give up. They range from small to upwards of 30+ inches. They are a great, cooperative fish.

Tarpon

Known as the Silver King, Tarpon are the holy grail for anglers. Just the sight of one makes you nervous, and once hooked, most have never know exhilaration on this level. They jump and fight and pull drag like no other inshore species. out Tarpon range from small juvenile, about 5-20 lbs, to medium sized ones about 20-50 lbs, and the giants that move through here in the Spring that range from 60-100+ lbs. Make sure you’re heart is in good shape if you come down for one of these beast!

    Trips start based on the tides. Some days may be split to take advantage of tidal movement where we fish in the morning and then again in the afternoon. The goal is to spend as much time on the water fishing.

    Trip Rates

    Skiff fishing for single angler:
    4 hours – $400
    6 hours – $500
    8 hours – $600
    Second angler is an additional $100

    Bay Boat for two anglers:
    4 hours – $500
    6 hours – $600
    8 hours – $700
    Additional anglers (up to four) $100

    Fishing does not end at any certain time. If the fish are there, we are going to try to catch them.

    Deposit Required

    Fishing charters are on a first come, first serve basis. I recommend booking early for tarpon season, which is March through July. A $100 deposit is required to hold a date.

    Cancellation Policy

    I do understand that emergencies arise and we are not in control of the weather. I ask that if you are unable to fish due to an emergency, please let me know as soon as possible. Weather related cancellations are at the guide’s discretion. Some conditions may warrant us starting our day earlier or later to accommodate for weather. I will do my best to reschedule the trip if weather is a factor. For cancellations made more than a month in advance of the trip date, the deposit will be refunded or moved to a newly re-scheduled date.

    Your Trip Includes:

    • Fishing License
    • Rods, Reels, Flys and/or Lures
    • A cooler with Ice and Water

    What to Bring:

    • Polarized Sunglasses, preferably amber or copper lenses
    • A hat to keep the sun out of your eyes
    • Clothes to keep the sun off of you
