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. It’s powered by a brand-new 250 HP Yamaha engine, to make sure you reach the fishing grounds in a snap. 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 passengers.

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.
