Went fishing with Naples Marina And Excursions on December 30, 2019
We did not catch anything sensational, but the experience was well worth it! We would definitely book again, but this time call Captain Mark directly to inquire about tide and best time/day to fish!

Yes this is a great family vacation highlight! My kids have not stopped talking about how much fun they had! The clean and bagged the fish we caught and recommended a great restaurant close by that would cook our catch!!!

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.

Yes very good capt. Jim, excellent first mate. One complait,is only 2 grouper per person. That's not very much and having to go out 20 miles .this is not the charters fault it is the state rules.

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.

Use resources to investigate others reviews of their experiences. This was key for me to pick the Captain & Boat that we used.

Listen to Vince and you'll be successful. I fished my whole life but in ponds and rivers. Totally different IMO with inshore.

Went fishing with Naples Backwater Fishing Charters on March 10, 2019
Aim for a weekday if it's high season, tons of boat traffic on the weekends in the backwater

Let the captain guide you. Not the other way around or you may be disappointed.
