Pocket Cruiser Charters

Pocket Cruiser Charters is based in Naples, Florida. Its waters are one of the best places to wet a line, and Captain George will make sure his guests not only land the fish of their dreams but also have a memorable day out.

You will be fishing aboard a 23-foot walkaround boat, powered by a 250 HP 2016 Yamaha engine and with a maximum speed of 30 knots. The vessel can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers for a dry ride. It is equipped with all the necessary navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio, as well as a live bait tank, an anchoring motor to make sure the boat stays where you want it to, and an icebox to store your refreshments. What is more, there is a toilet on board - such a necessity when spending your day out on the water!

Depending on the season and your personal preferences, you can choose whether you want to stay inshore, sail the waters of the Intracoastal or Rookery Bay, fish the reefs and wrecks or head around 15-20 miles offshore. You will be targeting Redfish, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Trout, King Mackerel, and Mangrove Snapper. Captain’s preferred fishing techniques vary from fly fishing to bottom fishing and jigging to spinning, drift fishing, light tackle, fly fishing, and trolling.

Your trip will include your fishing licenses, rods, reels, tackle, lures, live bait, and fly fishing equipment. Captain George will offer you water and Jack Link’s Meat Snacks, so you won’t be left starving. Once caught, your fish can be cleaned by the Captain for an additional charge.

Pocket Cruiser Charters and their Captain George will provide you everything to meet your fishing needs.
