Fishing in Naples

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.

Naples Fishing Seasons

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.

Sean was very informative and very patient with my novice fisherwoman wife. The bite was slow due to full moon and a cold front. Still caught a few despite the poor timing/moonphase and cold front.

We had an awesome afternoon on the water with Captain Edwin! My brother and I and our 11 year old sons are all novice fishermen and we were catching sharks like old pros! Captain Edwin was kind and made us all very comfortable out on the water. We will definitely be doing this again and couldn’t recommend this more!

We had such a wonderful day on the water fishing with Jimmy. He provided everything we needed and let us get right to it. The boat was clean and comfortable and he knew right where to go. Jimmy was the perfect captain, he was always ready to jump in yet also let us have the experience of doing things on our own. He went to great lengths to help us catch a Tarpin, and we reeled a 20 pounder right in. Such a great day, would highly recommend this trip!

We were 4 Iowa boys looking for a good time while in Naples. Sean showed us a great fishing experience in Florida, he was an absolute joy to hang out with in the boat, had great stories, and looking for constant action from the fish. Entertaining guide and super helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fishing trip.

We told captain Paul that one of the boys with us was having his 13th birthday! He made it memorable…..we caught fish, we saw eagles and osprey! We had dolphins jumping in our wake and even one of them grab a fish as one of the boys reeled in a fish! What fun….we will definitely hire Mangroveman charters again! Thanks Captain Paul!
