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!

Based on 24785 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.

Choose a vessel and trip length appropriate for your angling skills and experience, endurance, affordability, and time available. Don't expect big game on a half day trip on a big boat, and conversely don't expect comfort on a small but fast open fisherman. Most importantly, talk to your captain....tell him or her what you expect, and they'll tell you what experience they can provide.

Find a reputable & experienced company to charter your trip. Don’t set your expectations too high, fish are unpredictable. Book a full day trip, this will get you further out in the ocean where the bigger fish are at.

Pack lots of sunscreen, take a hat, and be prepared for a workout. Pick a fast boat if you want bigger fish, it takes time to get out there.

While the fish tend to gather near mangrove roots, you may want to practice your casting in open waters to get a better sense of how far your line will travel. It is relatively easy to overcast and snag your hook and line on the mangrove roots and have to put on a new hook when you break the line to get untangled. Also, bring someone that really enjoys fishing along with you.

Captain Joe and first mate Matt were great from the minute we arrived to when we left. They put us on fish right away and we caught at least 6 species of fish. Plenty of fish brought home to eat! A member of the group was sea sick most of the trip and they were very accommodating and moved closer to shore and still got us into fish. We cut our trip short and they again accommodated us with the booking cost. I would recommend this to anyone! Great day and memories made!

Capt. Marc was very knowledgeable on where to fish and what to expect to catch. All I asked was to put us on some fish because anything we caught was something new for us, having never fished Florida before. Capt. Marc did not disappoint; we caught a lot of fish. We all had a good time and would do it again.

We had an absolute blast! He was a great captain, was super nice and very funny! We all got a kick out of him, will definitely do another tour with him if we ever come back! The fishing was pretty slow that day, but it was nothing he control and we are just glad we had the opportunity to come out here and fish!
