Join Capt. Blake on board his 23’ World Cat. She’s very comfortable, thanks to her hull design; you’ll slice through any chop without getting beat up. You can bring your family or fishing team with you, up to 6 anglers can fish from her at the same time. A full set of modern navigational and fishfinding equipment is onboard to make sure you find your fish quickly and easily.

You have many options to choose from with Capt. Blake. Hit the backwaters of Wiggins Pass for the inshore all-stars like Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper. The mangroves hide many more species you can target as well.

A fan of bluer waters? Head out up to 9 miles off the coast and fish the hard bottom, ledges, and artificial reefs. A wide range of species are waiting for you in those waters, above hard limestone bottoms. Gag, Red, and Goliath Groupers, several species of Snappers, Triggerfish, various Sharks, and many more fish can be targeted. You’ll use live or cut baitfish, live shrimp, frozen squid, and other baits depending on the time of year and species targeted.

Maybe you just want to take your family out for a pleasant day out to relax? The fishing and lunch combo trip is the answer to that! After fishing for about 2 hours Capt. Blake will take you to Marco Island where a local restaurant will prepare your delicious fish so you can enjoy a family moment to remember for years to come.

About the Captain

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.
