Naples Charter Fishing
Naples fishing charters provide some of the very best angling in the state of Florida, which in itself is famous for both its saltwater and freshwater fishing. The warm, fertile waters of southwest Florida offer superb fishing all year, both inshore and offshore. One of the best Naples fishing charters you'll find is Captain Mike Bailey's.
Mike Bailey is a second-generation Naples fishing guide. Bailey has spent his entire life in Naples, and much of his time has been consumed with searching the hiding places of desirable fish species. As a result, he knows the bays, backwaters, inlets, reefs, wrecks, and ledges like the back of his hand. If he can't locate the fish, they're not there.
When you fish with Captain Mike's Naples fishing charters, you'll travel to wherever your best chance of catching your limit lies. This might be in the mangrove canals, the Everglades, the bay, the 10,000 Islands region, or the waters surrounding Marco Island. If it's offshore fishing you're interested in, Captain Mike Bailey's Naples fishing charters can handle that, too.
Captain Mike's boat is the Ms. B. Haven, a 25-foot custom-built boat with a 250-horsepower Yamaha engine. You'll get to the fishing grounds quickly. The boat is also equipped with top-notch fish finding instruments, a state-of-the-art electronics package, a Global Positioning System, and a live well. There's also a top that provides welcome shade when the sun gets too harsh.
Inshore Naples fishing charters with Mike will include catches of redfish, snook, tarpon, seatrout, pompano, black drum, mangrove snapper, ladyfish, and sheepshead. If you're worrying about getting seasick, this is a great trip for you. Inshore Naples fishing charters ply the calm, protected waters of the bays and tidal creeks, so the waters are calm. Also, you'll be fishing after just a short boat ride.
An offshore fishing trip with Captain Mike is a real adventure. The crew will cast net for bait on the way out to the clear, beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Offshore Naples fishing charters target the wrecks, reefs, and ledges offshore, where fish like to hide and hunt. Species frequently landed include king mackerel, little tunny, sharks, permit, grouper, snapper, cobia, and barracuda.
Captain Mike furnishes your fishing license, bait, rods, reels, and tackle. The crew will even clean and bag your fish for you, so all you have to do is enjoy the trip. The Ms. B. Haven is large enough for six anglers, but there's more fishing room when only four guests are aboard. Captain Mike welcomes anglers of all ages and all experience levels, so you're bound to have a successful, enjoyable trip.
Fishing with Captain Mike's Naples fishing charters is more than an ordinary fishing trip. His love and knowledge of the area are evident, and he'll provide you with some fascinating information about the region as you sit back and enjoy the ride. You'll also have a good chance to see marine mammals and shore birds along the way, including dolphins, manatees, eagles, and cormorants. Captain Mike's Naples fishing charters will provide you with an unforgettable experience, so be sure to bring along your camera.
