Member since May 2015
I was born and raised in Naples, FL, and have been exploring and fishing the backwaters since I could hold a fishing rod. My father has also been a full-time fishing guide in Naples for over 35 years. In a way, you can say I was "born into the business".

Ben was great from start to finish.  He put us on the fish, explained what we needed to do and was very patient with one of our “new learners”.

Best fishing trip I’ve ever been on. The morning weather was perfect and Capt. Ben knew exactly where to be at what time in order to give us the best opportunity to catch fish. We caught multiple snook and reds throughout the day with some even over slot fish.

All I’m all I give the whole experience a 10/10! I will be booking again soon!

It seems as if the cool winter weather has gone away as quickly as it arrived! The last couple weeks have had afternoon temperatures in the mid 80's, and some of the bigger fish species are really turning on!… Read Full Report →
