Based in the world famous fishing destination of Naples, Florida, Captain Brian and his team of professional Captains at Smokin’ Hooks Fishing Charters offer saltwater fishing adventures in and around the famous Wiggins Pass that leads from Estero Bay to the Gulf of Mexico.

Smokin’ Hooks features a fleet of two Parker boats that are well suited to offshore and nearshore fishing trips. At 26 ft, our Parker Walkarounds are just right for tackling choppier seas while still being able to fish closer to shore effectively. Both boats feature well-maintained 4 stroke Yamaha engines to make sure you reach the fishing grounds in a snap. There is plenty of protection from the weather conditions, up to date 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 operates two Parker vessels so please message for availability on how to book both boats for groups with 7-12 passengers.

Smokin’ Hooks target 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 Mangrove Snapper or Cobia or fight a Barracuda, King Mackerel, or Shark, Capt. Brian and his team have the experience necessary to provide an exciting, fun, and action-packed adventure. All fishing experience levels are catered to, 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 are also provided, but you may also bring any food and drinks you might want during the trip. Your catch will also be filleted, bagged, and iced for you at the end of the trip.
