We Catchin' Charters

We Catchin’ Charters promises to live up to its name, as you experience the thrill of inshore fishing out of Naples, FL. Get ready for plenty of action in the inshore and nearshore waters in the west of the Sunshine State, as you go after some tough-fighting and delicious creatures.

You’ll be in safe hands throughout your trip with Captain Mike Brasfield. An avid angler of over 35 years, he’d caught everything he could ever dream of, and wants to share his passion with you. With such experience behind him, he promises a productive trip to sea, helping you land the fish of your dreams.

Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard the 23’ Blue Wave bay boat to make yourselves at home. Built specifically to fish these shallow waters, she’s light and boasts a shallow hull to get you to the spots that most others can’t reach. All you need to do is bring your own drinks and snacks aboard, along with a cooler for your catch, and settle in for a thrilling day.

Capt. Mike promises the latest fishing geat and plenty of live bait to give you the edge over your target fish. You’ll mainly be bottom fishing and jigging, but you can even take advantage of the fly fishing gear and test your skills on the fly to land the monster fish that live here.

Get ready for an exhilarating day battling it out with some prized creatures. Redfish, Snook, Snappers, Jack Crevalles, and even Tarpon promise to put up an immense fight to come aboard. Meanwhile, Mackerel, Drum, Sheepshead, and Trout, offer plenty in the way of tasty rewards for your hard work.

At the end of your trip, Capt. Mike will even clean and fillet your catch, so you can head home and enjoy the fruits of your labor right away! What more could you want?

With red hot fishing year-round in Naples, there’s always time to come aboard. Come and let We Catchin’ Charters show you what’s what!
