Fish Backwater invites you to fish the backwaters of Rookery Bay along with fishing the pass creeks and Oyster bars in Naple, Florida. The charter is operated by Captain Chris Abdo who has fished these waters for many years and specializes in shallow water fishing. The area of Naples, Florida is famous for having unlimited access to a huge variety of fish species and that is what you will have too!
Captain Chris will take you fishing for Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, and more species available in these waters. You will utilize a number of techniques such as light tackle, spinning, popping, jigging, and even fly fishing.
You will fish on a 17-foot Mitzi flats boat originally built in 2012 with a capacity for 2 guests. It is powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots. The boat is fast and steady on the water, and can get you out to the productive fishing grounds efficiently. It is equipped with all the USCG-approved safety equipment, and also features a GPS and a fishfinder.
The vessel has a trolling motor used in the super shallow waters in order to troll silently and not to spook the fish. There is a livewell for the baits, and an icebox for the catch.
Your trip includes fly fishing equipment and conventional rods, reels, tackle, and an assortment of baits depending on the season. You will also have a fish cleaning and filleting service at the end so make sure you bring a big cooler to take your fish home and enjoy a hard day’s work for dinner!
