Collier County Tourist Development Council: Hook and Cook Campaign


Ms. B. Haven Fishing & Eco Charters was chosen to participate in a marketing campaign developed by the Collier County Tourist Development Council. Ms. B. Haven Fishing was the only Naples Fishing Charter Boat Company asked to participate in the Hook and Cook campaign to be featured on the official visitor information website. The goal was to catch some fish, take the best ones to a restaurant, have it cooked for them to enjoy. Paradise Coast picked Ms. B. Haven Fishing & Eco Charters based on their research and findings of all the great reviews our customers have written over the years on both review websites and social media including Trip Advisor, Yelp, Google, Facebook and many others. This wonderful 3 article series posted on tells the fishing tale from that half day Naples fishing charter.

It is a real honor to have been picked and we had the pleasure to have an absolute fantastic time with them as well! Paradise Coast came along for a half-day excursion as we took a great couple from Michigan on a birthday fishing trip to remember. Eric Snider, who wrote the articles, found Captain Mike’s explanation of the difference between just being a Naples Charter Boat Captain and what Capt. Mike considers himself as, a Naples Native Fishing Guide, to be very interesting. Interesting enough that he wrote the first article, MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE FISHING TRIP, including a video about the dialogue we shared.

The pressure was on for us to deliver not just a great day of fishing, but to also catch a keeper. It did not take us long to deliver as you can see in this article, HOW TO CATCH A TRIPLETAIL IN 5 MINUTES, plus a little later caught a keeper snook leaving enough time for a bit of shell hunting, dolphins and bird observation. The day started and ended on the beautiful waters of Naples Florida!

It is such a bonus Naples offers to visitors to be able to go to one of the local restaurants that will cook your catch after your Naples fishing charter is over. This is the freshest fish you can eat. For this, the Dock Restaurant was involved, read about how We Hooked ‘em, and They cooked ‘em.

A big heartfelt Thank you to Eric Snider,, the Dock Restaurant & Jordan and Stephanie Roberts from Ms. B. Haven Fishing & Eco Charters for making this possible and for the wonderful moments on this half-day fishing charter.
