Member since March 2015

Naples, United States

Background
Living near the water in the Canal Zone, we learned how to enjoy everything about the sea. Our uncle showed us how to snorkel, scuba dive, spearfish, and even how to find treasure and old relics underwater. I have lived in Naples, Florida for 28 years, and have been fishing professionally for over 7 years. I became a captain as an excuse to go fishing all the time. I am very passionate about the sea and sea life, and still enjoy it immensely.
Techniques
Offshore bottom fishing and backwater light tackle

Went fishing on Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Great day with Cpt. Vince, my 16 yr old son and a friend. Perfect weather and a lot of fun on the reef. Lost a few large Gag Groupers when we were too slow but that’s cause we’re rookies! Highly recommend Hemingway fishing tours!

We had a great time with captain Vince Hemingway. He put us right on the fish and we caught a bunch while also catching some sharks and playing with a dolphin.  Our next trip with Captain Vince will be in-shore.  Ken and Lisa Fulghum

Not too many fish but Captain Vince got an A+ for effort!  He tried everything he could to find us a good spot where the fish were!  Beautiful day and nice way to celebrate my husbands birthday!

Went to near offshore fishing areas with Captain Vince. Weather was great, slightly overcast and seas were calm. Fished three different spots and caught at least 11 different kinds of fish. Captain Vince gave us good instructions and took care of everything on the boat. Got plenty of fish to eat and fried them up the same day-great tasting! Overall, just an excellent day of fishing with a knowledgeable captain!

This family of four had a great New Years Day fishing!  Vincent was friendly and worked hard so we could have a enjoyable time. We’ll definitely look him up again when we return to Naples again next year.
