Naples Inshore Fishing

Naples Inshore Fishing Charters specialize in fishing for shallow water species like Redfish and Tarpon in Naples, Florida. They are operated by Captain Chris McCubbin who has spent his whole life fishing the waters of Southwest Florida. He will take you on a memorable adventure in the waters of Sanibel or Boca Grande for Tarpon on their annual migration.

Captain Chris was born and raised in Naples so you know that you are in good hands as he knows every nook and cranny where the fish spend their days. He is also a well-established captain in the area, so he can call upon other good captains to advise where there’s been any catch on the particular day you go out.

You will fish aboard his 23 foot Skeeter ZX22V saltwater fishing boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha V6 4.2l engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. This speedy vessel will quickly and efficiently take you from one productive spot to the next, so you spend maximum time doing what you came to do: fishing.

The boat features a wireless trolling motor for when you want to troll silently along the shallow waters, as well as all the navigational and safety equipment.

Naples Inshore Fishing Charters will provide all the fishing gear so you can target Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon and big shallow water Sharks. Captain Chris spends every Spring in the Sanibel to Boca Grande area fishing for Tarpon on their annual migration and you could be too!
