Head out to Naples or Marco Island and visit 2 Thumbs Up Fishing Charters and Captain Stanley Bryant. They offer inshore, nearshore, flats, and backcountry fishing trips. Captain Stanley has the knowledge and skills to put you on the bite and help you enjoy Florida’s marine world to the fullest.

You’ll use a 20’ Skeeter bay boat powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine. It holds enough room for up to 4 anglers and is equipped with a modern GPS system that will keep you on the course all the time. The boat’s got an ice-box to keep your drinks and fish stay cool, and the wireless trolling motor will allow you to approach the fish more carefully. Also, the boat’s got a livewell.

Captain Stanley uses light tackles and specializes in spinning. Some of the fish you and he will target are Snook, Goliath Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and Spanish Mackerel. Feel free to also ask the captain about near offshore trips, if that’s more your thing. Your kids are more than welcome to come along. Bring them as well and create wonderful family memories. Also, you’re free to keep all the fish (within regulations) that you catch.

The captain will cover you for rods, reels, tackle, as well as live bait and lures. He’ll also provide licenses and water. Yours is just to pack some food and you’re ready to go.

2 Thumbs Up Fishing Charters is ready to take you on a fun and memorable fishing trip. Visit them and experience the fun!
