In the heart of the Paradise Coast, where the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico meet beautiful white sandy beaches, lies a year-round fishery that'll leave you breathless. Fishing in Naples, Florida is an adventure you have to live to believe! Made up of mangroves, shallow flats, inland canals teeming with fish, as well as productive reefs and wrecks, you’ll find everything an avid fisherman needs.

If you're looking for a family adventure you can take your kids on, backcountry charters are your best option. These half day trips will have you fishing closer to town, targeting the likes of Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Sharks, and Flounder. If you’re up for a challenge, book a specialized fly fishing Tarpon trip, and finally bag that trophy “Silver King!”

Cruise the deep waters off the coast of Naples to reel in some tough-fighting creatures. Investing in a full day trip will get you in the range of Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and Permit. If you’re looking to tick some big game fish off your bucket list, opting for an extended deep sea charter will put you on monsters like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and various big bottom dwellers.

With its fishing reputation, it’s no surprise that Naples is full of fishing charters ready to take you on your journey. Head down to the Naples Bay and take your pick, or visit the docks on Marco Island with a variety of boats at your disposal. No matter where you go, you’re sure to have a good time!

Rules & Regulations

Booking a trip with a fishing charter in Naples will cover your fishing licenses. Note that some fish species have strict regulations in Florida, so the best way to make sure you’re fishing within the law is heading out with a reputable captain.

Based on 27954 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

January

With colder waters, inshore fish are gathering in deeper holes and channels in the back bays – a lot of species are available in a small area. Spotted Seatrout, Pompano, Redfish, and Black Drum are just a few on offer.

February

The weather can be changeable. This makes flexibility key, with a lot on offer for those in the know. As well as Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Trout, warm-water species like Snook and Redfish appear.

March

The days start to get longer and strong east winds keep the water clean and clear. Tarpon starts to come into the coves, flats, and backcountry, and Snook starts to migrate to the passes. Trout is consistently good on the grass flats.

April

Warmer weather starts to settle in, with water temperatures in the 70s. This is a transition month, so the weather can be unpredictable. Get it right, and you'll have great fishing for Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, and Shark.

May

May sees large numbers of Snook getting ready to spawn around the shoreline and passes. Tarpon fishing is excellent in the early morning and late evening. The weather is warm and reliable this time of year.

June

This is the peak time to sight fish for Snook, catching and releasing as per regulations. Tarpon fishing is good off the beaches and Sharks are caught in the shallow bays and nearshore.

July

Early morning and late evening fishing remains the best option, with large numbers of Snook still congregating in the passes to spawn. You can also find exciting Shark fishing in the bays.

August

Temperatures are very high in the daytime, so most fishing is limited to early morning and evenings. Offshore, seas are calm. This can be a good opportunity to put meat in the freezer – Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper are biting well.

September

Hurricanes can potentially disrupt fishing as the weather starts to transition towards the fall. Nearshore, you will find King and Spanish Mackerel biting well, with large Bull Reds also in the cards.

October

Water temperatures cool considerably, making the all-day bite better than it was in previous months. Fish start to move into the back bays and passes. The Redfish bite is on fire in October.

November

Speckled Trout migrate into the back bays and are caught in good numbers over shallow patchy grass areas. You can find Bluefish and Pompano in the same spots. King and Spanish Mackerel are around nearshore.

December

This is Southwest Florida's busiest time of year, with comfortable temperatures throughout the day and good fishing for Snook, Trout, Redfish, Pompano, and Jack inshore. Offshore, there are Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper.

Our trip was not specifically for fishing, more for a combination of shelling, fishing and bird/dolphin watching. We only caught a couple of fish, but we did not fish very long so were pleased with what we caught.

You’ll always catch something off of Naples but trophy fish are going to be easier to catch inshore during the colder months.

Id recommend Capt Marc. The day we went out, two of the people were inexperienced in fishing. Capt Marc not only showed them how to cast and techniques for fishing, he worked hard to make sure they had a super day…. And he was successful in every way!!!

The two times I fished offshore near Naples have been nonstop action and numerous species. Each time we saw dolphins, enormous sea turtles, sharks and more. It’s a great place to fish with kids or the whole family.

Definitely go with a guide. I am an avid fisherman in the upper Midwest but i learned a lot from the Captain about bait selection, rigging, techniques, and tides, that i wouldn't have know how to navigate on my own. It is an investment but pays off dividends with knowledge you receive.

I was told that the fishing was better a little later in the season when the water is warmer, so I would recommend first time anglers book in April or May.

Captain Joe and Matt were outstanding! We’ve fished in Naples before, but never have had an experience quite like this. These guys knew exactly what to do to get fish in the boat, and there wasn’t a moment that our lines were in the water without getting bites. The day ended with two Goliath Groupers which were the icing on the cake. A fishing trip for a lifetime for our group from Minnesota!

I can’t say enough about how great the crew and captain were on this trip. It was a really choppy day but we went out anyway. Got about 8 miles offshore and dropped anchor. Dropped our bait in the water and within 30 seconds we were catching all the snapper we could reel in. It was like the fish were waiting there for us. I have found my crew for all future fishing trips. Thank you!

Josh was great. A born and raised local who knows the 10,000 Islands like the back of his hand and got us bites at every stop. Fun to fish with, too. He was also super responsive in setting up the trip and took good care of my 85-year old dad. Would highly recommend him.

We did a half day trip and it was awesome! Captain Stanley kept us on the fish the whole time. We caught our fair share of sheepshead, trout, snapper, and puffer fish. It was a lot of fun! Stanley is knowledgeable, patient, always kept us baited, and a pleasure to fish with. We will be back!

Captain Billy was an excellent escort and navigator. We saw dolphins, many beautiful birds that he was able to identify for us, shelled on an island with so many keepers we had to start leaving some behind. We went fishing off another island beach and caught catfish and sheep(s)head. Captain Billy is extremely personable. A wonderful day for my daughter and me. Thank you!

We had a blast limiting out on Snapper and added a Goliath Grouper and a couple Barracuda for fun on the way in. Captain Brandon knows where the fish are and put us right on top of them! I live in FL and had family in from out of state, they had a blast, and we’ll be using them in the future!

Was a little concerned that the kids (8 and 5) would not have a good time - but Captain Jimmy was fantastic - very patient and made the time fly by. Kids could not stop talking about the day and had to call every relative they could think of to tell them about the adventure! Many thanks for a super day
