Captain
Wes Bedell

Member since June 2015

Naples, United States

Background
Capt. Wes was born and raised in the local area, and has 25 years of fishing professionally under his belt. How did he decide to become a captain? Well, his wife was yelling at him for fishing all the time while she was knee deep in nappies, and asked him why he didn't just get his license already, so that he was getting paid to do it. "I thought, 'Wow! What a great idea!'", says Capt. Wes. Capt. Wes is a true family man who understands what an incredible experience it is when parents and their kids fish together, and this is what motivates him. He loves nothing more than having the opportunity to help his guests create happy memories that will last forever. As for what he enjoys reeling in, Capt. Wes has previously landed a 10' Hammerhead, as well as lots of Tiger Sharks and Goliath Groupers. Come aboard and he'll help you reel in your dream catch!
