Captain
Ben Geroy

Member since May 2015 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 almost 40 years. In a way, you can say I was "born into the business".
Techniques
While I do offer trips with live bait, artificial lures, 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.
