Description

Based in the world famous fishing destination of Naples, Florida, Captain Brian of Smokin’ Hooks Saltwater Fishing Charters offers saltwater fishing adventures in and around the famous Wiggins Pass, Sanibel, Marco Island, Captiva, Estero Bay, and Caya Costa.

Capt. Brian’s boat is well suited to offshore and nearshore fishing trips. At 25 ft, this Parker Walkaround is just right for tackling choppier seas while still being able to fish closer to shore effectively. There is plenty of protection from the weather conditions, and marine electronics and a live bait tank will make sure you get on the fish. Most importantly, there is plenty of deck space for up to six anglers to try to reel in a big one.

Smokin’ Hooks target pretty much all the fish that inhabit the waters within ten miles of the South West Floridian coast line. Whether you’re hoping to hook a tasty Grouper or Mangrove Snapper, or a hard fighting Barracuda, King Mackerel, or Shark, Capt. Brian has the experience necessary to provide an exciting, fun, and action-packed adventure. All experience levels are catered for, from the most experienced angler to the first timer or family group.

Your charter trip will include fishing licenses for everyone in your group, as well as custom rods and reels and bait. Ice and bottled water is also provided, but you are recommended to bring any food and drinks you might need during the trip. You catch will also be filleted, bagged, and iced for you at the end of the trip.

Will definitely repeat. Brian gave us choices as to what we wanted to do on the trip - we followed his suggestions and he kept us on fish.

We started out with a sunset cruise one night, which was great, followed by a full day of fishing the following day.  With unusual conditions working against us, Captain Brian worked diligently to keep us on the fish.  He rarely took a seat, as he was constantly baiting our hooks, taking the fish off for us, and being attentive in general.  He had some great stories and was very personable; it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend by the end of the day.  We also had a few surprises from mother nature: a dolphin stalked/hung out within a few feet of the Smoking Hooks for a few hours during the morning and we also got to see a loggerhead sea turtle swimming up close.  Definitely recommend Captain Brian and the Smoking Hooks!  Hoping to get back down in the summer!
