trip description for Naples Hook-Up in Naples

Climb aboard with Captain Brandon and experience an action-packed day of bay fishing around Naples and 10k Islands! Captain Brandon has been fishing these waters since he could talk and knows how the fish think in this area. You can expect to target Redfish, and Speckled Trout, Snook, Tarpon, and Black Drum. Occasionally Captain Brandon will target Goliath Grouper as well if you're looking to test your strength against the biggest fish you can find inshore! Captain Brandon likes to use live bait, cut bait, and, on some occasions, lures to attract the best and biggest fish. For these trips, Captain Brandon uses his 26’ Sea Chaser center console that provides a wide, spacious, and stable deck that will serve as your fishing platform. The vessel can accommodate up to 6 anglers and have them fishing at the same time. Captain Brandon will provide everything you need for a productive day on the water. He will have an icebox for your day’s catch as well as rods, reels, bait, and tackle and will cover your fishing licenses and fish cleaning! All you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks and get ready to fight some fish. Come on down and make some memories with Captain Brandon! Read More

What types of fishing charters are common in Naples?

Deep Sea fishing is the most popular type of fishing in Naples as well as inshore fishing, flats fishing, and nearshore fishing.

The most commonly sought after species in Naples are: 1. snook, 2. redfish, 3. mangrove snapper, 4. speckled trout, and 5. tarpon.

The most common fishing techniques in Naples are live bait fishing, light tackle fishing, and artificial lure fishing but bottom fishing and heavy tackle fishing are popular as well.

How much do Naples fishing charters cost?

Prices in Naples can range anywhere from about $538 to $1,625, but the average price for a half day trip in Naples is $612. The average price for a full day trip in Naples is $1,119.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What month is best for fishing in Naples?

The most popular season for fishing in Naples is spring, and most anglers book their trips 11 days in advance.

Do I need a Naples fishing license and what are the bag limits in Naples?

See here for more information on fishing licenses in Naples, bag limits for target species, and fishing season regulations in Naples. When in doubt, your fishing guide will always know the right rules and regulations in Naples.

Naples Freshwater Fishing

Naples, Florida is a year-round fishery that offers a diverse range of fishing opportunities. The area is characterized by mangroves, shallow flats, inland canals, productive reefs, and wrecks, providing a variety of habitats for fish species. Backcountry charters are ideal for family adventures, targeting Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Sharks, and Flounder. Specialized fly fishing Tarpon trips are also available for those seeking a challenge. Full day trips offer access to deeper waters, where Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and Permit can be found. Extended deep sea charters provide opportunities to catch big game fish like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and various big bottom dwellers.

Fishing charters in Naples provide fishing licenses and ensure compliance with Florida's strict fishing regulations. It is recommended to book with a reputable captain to ensure a safe and legal fishing experience. Naples Bay and Marco Island offer a variety of fishing charters to choose from.

Naples Inshore Fishing

Naples is surrounded by mangroves, flats, sandbars, jetties, and piers that harbor an abundance of inshore fish species. These are the perfect spots to target speckled trout, redfish, drum, ladyfish, pompano, snook, tarpon, and sheepshead. Many of these fish have a cult following or are on angler’s bucket lists. If either is true for you then Naples is the perfect place for your next trip.

Head to the backwaters and experience some of the best snook, redfish, and seatrout fishing in the state. Although pompano is less of a glamorous fish than tarpon and snook, they provide some of the most exciting fishing you can have on light tackle. This hard-charging fish is a member of the jack family and is exceptionally good to eat. If you love to throw flies, Naples is a great place to test your skills and target inshore fish that will give you a run for your money.

In the summer, there is nothing better on the paradise coast of Florida than tarpon fishing. This is what everyone is after and Naples is one of the best places to catch one. You'll have a good chance to catch a tarpon over 100 pounds but if the tarpon won’t bite, the snook will. Snook are a fantastic south Florida fish and this area has a ton of them in the mangroves. Both of these powerful fish can grow to giant proportions and are sought-after trophy fish.

Naples Nearshore Fishing

Naples, Florida is a beautiful city surrounded by mangroves and shallow flats for inshore anglers to explore, but while offshore, there are ample wrecks and reefs to troll or deep drop. This means the action is hot no matter what kind of angling you are after.

Further from shore, various species of grouper and snapper congregate near deep structures, and you can try your luck by dropping baited lines down to their feeding grounds. If you want something more fast-paced, head out and troll near reefs for Spanish mackerel, kingfish, and cobia. These fish explode on lures, fight hard, and grow into giants, all things that make the nearshore fishing in Naples second to none.

Popular Types of Fishing In Naples

Naples fishing charters offer a variety of options for anglers of all levels. The most common types of fishing charters in Naples include inshore, offshore, and backwater fishing. Inshore fishing charters are perfect for those who want to stay close to shore and catch species such as snook, redfish, and trout. Offshore fishing charters take anglers further out to sea to catch larger species such as grouper, snapper, and kingfish. Backwater fishing charters are ideal for those who want to explore the mangrove-lined estuaries and catch species such as tarpon, snook, and redfish.

Some of the most common fish to catch in Naples include snook, redfish, trout, tarpon, grouper, snapper, and kingfish. Depending on the type of fishing charter you choose, you may also have the opportunity to catch other species such as cobia, permit, and shark.

Naples fishing charters often visit landmarks such as the Naples Pier and the Ten Thousand Islands. These areas are known for their abundant fish populations and beautiful scenery. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a beginner, there's a Naples fishing charter that's perfect for you.

    We had an outstanding fishing trip with Captain Jack, and caught our target species at the first location of the day. In my experience this is rare. The snook were big, hungry, and plentiful.

    Captain Brandon was an awesome fishing guide! We have a 7 & 8 year and they have always wanted to catch a shark when we take fishing excursions. So this time I booked with Captain Brandon just for that reason. We landed some great bull sharks and had a great time. Capt. Brandon was also amazing with our kids. Since there is some waiting involved when fishing for sharks, he made the time enjoyable by being so engaged with our kids which I know they appreciated. I would highly recommend Capt. Brandon as a fishing guide and plan to book with him again.

    The fishing charter with Captain Phil was the highlight of our trip to Florida this year! Phil and his first mate were very helpful and friendly throughout our 4 hrs trip. They made sure my 9 year old son had the best spot on the boat and were eager to help him land a few fish. Captain Phil helped us land a couple big fish and filleted our Cobia which gave us some tasty supper. We would definitely use Captain Phil again.
