Fall Fishing in Naples, Florida

Fall fishing off Naples, Florida is an exciting time of year. As the waters cool off, pelagic fish like cobia and kingfish move through our area. Red grouper are in abundance offshore and a limit of two per person is just right. Gag grouper is in season right now and the law allows two per person of these tasty fish. Live bait is showing up at the head pin off Gordon pass and the shiners in our net mean easy pickings of mangrove snapper and yellowtail snapper. They can't resist a live shiner wiggling in front of them. Spanish mackerel and bonita are crashing bait pods from near shore to well offshore. If you slip up to a pod of busy feeding fish, you can cast a spoon or jig into them and POW! It's a great time for fishing and a great time for fishing charters.

Should I Hire a Naples Deep Sea Fishing Charter?

Do you want a successful charter? You'll have a lot more success and a lot more fun with a fishing charter with a Captain that has many years of experience in the Naples area waters and who fish the inland waters or Gulf of Mexico on a daily basis. Make sure that the boat is fast, so you'll spend more time fishing and less time riding to reach your destination.

Another factor to consider is safety. It's easy to get lost on the ocean, especially when you're in an unfamiliar area. Accidents happen, too. With a seasoned captain and the latest in safety and navigational equipment, your chances for a safe trip are greatly increased.

Something else to think about with Naples deep sea fishing charters is that several of the charter services have their own secret "fishing holes" - literally. Ask your potential Captain if he has any "secret" fishing holes that have a high chance of producing a catch. That is what you want, right!

What's included in the price of a Naples deep sea fishing trip somewhat depends on the individual boat you select. Most include your fishing license, gear, tackle, and bait. Drinks, food and other personal preferences are usually your responsibility but check with the Captain to see what arrangements can be made. Most of the boats also provide large coolers and ice to keep your catch fresh.
