Reel Local Fishing Charters is dedicated to making sure you have a great time on the water. Regardless of your fishing experience, Captain Brandon will do his best to help you catch your fish of a lifetime. He’s been guiding other people around Naples and the 10,000 Islands area for over 20 years. With that amount of knowledge and experience by your side, any beginner is bound to become an angler by the end of the day.

You’ll be fishing on a 26’ Sea Chaser that accommodates up to 4 guests. This bay boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and features all necessary fishing equipment you’ll need for the day. There’s enough room to walk around and relax on the cushion seats, so you’re looking for a comfortable day on the water, even if you’re not used to being around boats.

The inshore waters and backcountry spots of the area offer lots of species to target, with the most common ones being Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tripletail, Tarpon, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, and more. You can keep the catch after the trip and the captain will clean and fillet it for you free of charge.

All fishing equipment, licenses, and cold drinks are included in the price. You only need to pack some snacks and sun protection.

Reel Local Fishing Charters guarantees a good time on the water. Come join Capt. Brandon and see what’s biting. Fish on!

I was born in Naples FL, and instantly introduced to the fishing community. While I didn't always have a boat, I was consistently catching fish. And at one point I thought it would be great to take families out and share my passion and teach them all about fishing. So I bought a boat and began. Doing charters out of Naples / 10k islands
