On A Mission – 23'

1500 Danford St
Naples FL, United States

Whether you’re an experienced angler or just discovering your sea legs, the experience of fishing in Naples, Florida is something that simply can’t be missed. On A Mission charters, a family business with Captain Wes Bedell at the helm, can’t wait to take you on an adventure that you’ll remember for a lifetime!

Capt. Wes has been a backcountry and offshore fishing guide in the local area for 15 years, so you know you’ll be in safe hands whether you’re exploring the famous Florida flats or heading out to the Gulf. Always fancied tackling gamefish? Capt. Wes will help you target fierce fighters such as Tarpon, Permit and Cobia. Want to take home something tasty for dinner? King Mackerel and Tripletail are on the menu!

No matter where you want to reel in your big catch, you’ll be undertaking your adventure on Capt. Wes’ 23’ Sabalo offshore sport fishing boat —she’s perfect for cruising the flats or heading further offshore. She can accommodate up to 4 anglers and is decked out with top-of-the-range navigational equipment.

Want to turn this into a family trip to remember? Children aged 5 and up are more than welcome onboard On A Mission. Capt. Wes runs his charters with his sons, and understands the importance of families fishing together! He wants to help you create incredible memories that will last a long time, and is more than happy to teach budding young anglers some top techniques to reel in their first big catch.

Superb quality St Croix and Shimano rods and reels are included in your trip. You’ll be catching anything from filchers to crabs to penfish to use as live bait, if they’re biting — if not, your captain will prepare bait before your trip. Water is provided to help you beat the Florida heat, so you just need to bring along some snacks — fighting big game fish is hungry work.

About the Captain

Wes Bedell
Naples, Florida, United States
Member since June 2015

2
Capt. Wes was born and raised in the local area, and has 25 years of fishing professionally under his belt. How did he decide to become a captain? Well, his wife was yelling at him for fishing all the time while she was knee deep in nappies, and asked him why he didn't just get his license already, so that he was getting paid to do it. "I thought, 'Wow! What a great idea!'", says Capt. Wes. Capt. Wes is a true family man who understands what an incredible experience it is when parents and their kids fish together, and this is what motivates him. He loves nothing more than having the opportunity to help his guests create happy memories that will last forever. As for what he enjoys reeling in, Capt. Wes has previously landed a 10' Hammerhead, as well as lots of Tiger Sharks and Goliath Groupers. Come aboard and he'll help you reel in your dream catch!
