Naples Local Fishermen

Pelicans at Naples fishing dockWhen our fishing charters return every day to our dock in downtown Naples. We are greeted by some of Naples finest fishermen, the brown pelican. While once endangered, the brown pelican has made a prolific recovery and can be found in large numbers around our cleaning table every day. Right now as we are catching mostly mangrove snapper these birds are greatly interested in the prospects of a free meal from the remains of the filleted snappers. It is quite a show to watch these birds jockey for position in an effort to obtain a free meal. Watching us clean our snapper and grouper catches every day is enjoyed by many and watching the shenanigans of the pelicans by all. Stop by Port of Call marina some afternoon and watch some of Naples best fishermen work hard for the supper.

Naples Fishing May 15th, 2010

Mangrove Snapper from Naples deep sea fishing charter.Mangrove snapper fishing on our offshore fishing charters remains very strong. Charter fishing parties aboard the Alabama going out into the Gulf of Mexico are very pleased with our consistent catches of mangroves, gag grouper and porgies. On most charters we are fishing very light line using small hooks and bait to trick the fish as the waters are clearing from the last cold front. Spring is beginning to take hold in Naples and we expect king and Spanish mackerel to begin showing up along the coast this week. Stay tuned for an update very soon on the mackerel arrival.

Deep sea fishing charters aboard the Alabama, Naples, FL,  have all the amenities of a large boat coupled with the speed of a smaller one. Our fishing parties find plenty of room , comfortable space and lots of area to spread out and fish. Mangrove snapper fishing in Naples remains the hot fish right now as the water remains unseasonably cool. We are also catching amberjack and a few kings on the full day charters. Passengers going out on full days are rewarded with nice catches of mangroves up to seven pounds. We also caught a couple of tripletails last week just to add to the creel. Fishing should be very good this coming week as we get the best weather forecast of the new year.
