My family started vacationing in Naples over 20 years ago. My earliest memories of Florida are the boating and fishing trips my dad would always take me on. Nothing was more fun and I could never get enough of it! Flash forward 10 years and we moved to Naples. Throughout high school I would spend my afternoons/weekends on the water exploring new areas and trying to catch all kinds of fish. I went to Eckerd College and received a BS in Marine science. While prepping for grad school I worked for a resort and ran charters for them. It didn't take long before I set grad school aside and decided to start my own charter business, Paradise Coast Charters.

My wife and I had a fabulous time.  She normally comes along for the sun and a little fishing (mostly a good sport).  We caught so many fish that she had to fish as the action was hot.  We went about 6 miles out on a great spot Capt Blake found from diving different reefs.  He was awesome and knew his stuff.  We will be back next Feb!!!  Thanks Blake.
