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, Marco Island, and Estero Bay.

Smokin’ Hook’s boats are well suited to offshore and nearshore fishing trips. At 26 feet, their Parker Walkarounds are just right for tackling choppier seas while still being able to fish closer to shore effectively. Each boat features a well-maintained 250 HP Yamaha engine to make sure you reach the fishing grounds in a snap. There is plenty of protection from the weather conditions, as well as marine electronics and a live bait tank that will make sure you get on the fish. Most importantly, there is plenty of deck space for up to six passengers.

The crew targets pretty much all the fish that inhabit the waters within nine miles of the South West Floridian coastline. 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 adventure includes fishing licenses for everyone in your group, as well as custom rods and reels, in addition to bait. Ice and bottled water are also provided, but it’s recommended to bring any food and drinks you might need during the trip. Your catch will be filleted, bagged, and iced for you at the end of the trip.
