Spend an unforgettable day on the waters of Naples with Playin Hooky! Captain Dave has years of experience to share and he’s happy to pass on his best tips and tricks to you. Whether you’re just taking a rod for the first time or you already have a few fish trophies under your belt, you’ll enjoy your time spent on this boat.
You’ll be fishing on a 20’ Lowe that accommodates up to 3 guests. This bay boat is powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine and reaches the speed of 38 knots, so you’ll be on your fishing spot in no time. And for the moments when you need to move quietly but not fast, there’s a wireless trolling engine that will let you sneak up on fish.
You’ll mostly explore inshore waters, flats, and the backcountry. Nearshore spots and wrecks are also an option but they are weather-dependent. Target Sheepshead, Tripletail, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, and some larger species, such as Grouper, Blacktip, and Bull Shark. There’s also a variety of fishing techniques you can try on, with bow fishing coming soon as well.
Capt. Dave lets you keep the catch and he even cleans it after the trip free of charge. He’ll also cover your fishing licenses and equipment, so you only need to pack some food, drinks, and sun protection for the day.
Playin Hooky runs trips all year long. It’s always a good time for some fishing action. You only need to choose when you’re coming.
