Naples Fishing Report

Naples Fishing ReportGag grouper fishing continues to be very good. Our deep sea fishing charters going out of Port of Call Marina, here in Naples, are continually catching nice gag grouper, amberjacks and mangrove snappers. Our sportfishing parties are finding that the grouper favor live bait right now over frozen thread herring and squid. We are still using very light line to catch most of the fish because the water is still cool and the fish are not as active as when it is warmer. Big schools of bait fish are showing up offshore and that is the first sign spring is very near. Fishing here in Naples will continue to improve as the suns warms the water.

Red Grouper Fishing Remains Strong

Red Grouper FishingWe were on a full day charter today and our party found fishing in Naples to be very good. Red grouper continue to bite as the water is constantly warming in the bright sunny days. In addition to red grouper we all caught several nice mangrove snappers. Charter fishing in Naples will continue improving so long as the cold fronts stay away. Offshore today we saw several schools of bait down south that were heading north. Shortly after the baitfish begin showing the king mackerel and cobia will start their annual migration through southwest Florida. Spring fishing in Naples is some of the best anywhere. Come see for yourself why our sportfishing parties are all returning to the dock happy.

Warm Weather Continues to Produce Hot Fishing

Naples Deep Sea Fishing Charter CustomersTip Powers of McLean, Virginia and his crew from Reality Direct had a great day charter fishing 30 miles offshore from Naples yesterday. They caught several nice red grouper and amberjacks. The fish are extremely active right now due to the warmer weather here in southwest Florida. We expect great weather to continue here in Naples for the foreseeable future and great fishing to continue also. Yesterday we caught fish on everything we put down including, thread herring, live pinfish, squid and 3 ounce jigs tipped with shrimp. The offshore ledges in 80 feet seem to be the best area to look for consistent catches. The fish have apparently moved off of more open bottom to the shelter of ledges. No matter the reason there are plenty of fish on the spots we are currently fishing and fishing charters in Naples should remain good.
