Naples, United States

Background
I was born and raised in Naples, FL, and have been exploring and fishing the backwaters since I could hold a fishing rod. My father has also been a full-time fishing guide in Naples for over 35 years. In a way, you can say I was "born into the business".
Techniques
While I do offer trips with live bait, artificial lures, and fly fishing, live bait is the method of fishing I use most often. Live bait fishing makes catching fish much easier for anglers of all skill levels.

Went fishing on Monday, August 29, 2016

Best fishing trip I’ve ever been on. The morning weather was perfect and Capt. Ben knew exactly where to be at what time in order to give us the best opportunity to catch fish. We caught multiple snook and reds throughout the day with some even over slot fish.

All I’m all I give the whole experience a 10/10! I will be booking again soon!
