Top Fishing Charters in Naples
Fishing in Naples
Fishing in Naples, Florida, is all about diversity. Blessed with a semi-tropical climate that allows almost all of Florida’s favorite species to prosper, this is one of those fisheries no self-respecting traveling angler can afford to pass on. If a rich, year-round inshore offering combined with an interesting offshore fishery sounds good to you, this a destination you should not miss out on. Naples fishing charters give you the chance to get out on the water and sample the best of the action for yourself.
When it comes to enjoyable fishing for all, there’s just no beating Southwest Florida. The creeks, oyster beds and grass flats around Naples are home to top notch game fish including Pompano, Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish all year round, but inshore fishing in Naples is really all about the “Big 3:” Snook, Tarpon and Redfish.
The coastline stretch from Naples to Fort Myers is often referred to as the ‘Snook Capital of the World’, with double-digit hook-ups throughout the season being the rule rather than the exception. The Silver King migrates from the north come springtime, and with it thousands of light tackle enthusiasts make their annual pilgrimage. This is when Naples fly fishing comes into its own.
Looking for something a bit more toothy? You'll be happy to learn that Naples is also famous for Shark fishing. Known for hosting the best Shark fishing on the Paradise coast, you can find everything from Lemon, Blacktip, Bull and even Hammerhead Sharks foraging the backwaters.
As if that wasn’t enough, Naples deep sea fishing charters also have a year-round offering. King Mackerel, Amberjack, Grouper and huge Permit dominate the countless shipwrecks and artificial reefs you can find scattered along the Gulf floor. With all these available on a full day trip (season dependent of course), what more could you possibly want?
Rules & Regulations
No license for fishing is necessary if you’re fishing aboard a guided charter, party boat or other for-hire vessel which possesses a valid captain or charter boat license.
Types of Fishing
Winter fishing for Trout is great with live shrimps or jigs with popping corks. Later on in the year, sight fish for Snook as they start to spawn around the coastal areas and passes. Don't miss out for a light-tackle bucket list moment sight fishing for Tarpon in the late spring and early summer, or get the heavy tackle out to target a Shark in shallow water. Trolling for Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel is very good in fall and springtime, and bottom fishing over the reefs and wrecks can get good results for Grouper and Snapper year round.
