Naples Fishing Report

New Years Fishing Charter, Naples FL

We are now into the new year and yet Naples fishing remains hot. The cold fronts before Christmas caused the Gulf of Mexico waters to cool and when that happens snapper fishing heats up. We are catching limits of mangrove snapper, red Grouper and Amberjack right now as a direct result of the cooling of the waters. Fishing should remain very stable until the end of March. The snapper fishing is often done with very light tackle which provides a great challenge to land these wily fish. Come see for yourself why our boats are considered the very best deep sea offshore charter boats in southwest Florida.

Gag Grouper Fishing in Naples FL

Gag Grouper Fishing in Naples FLFall is now here and that always makes the Gag Grouper fishing very good. Right now we are catching lots of gag and red grouper on both full and 1/2 day charters. Grouper fishing will remain very strong through Christmas or until the water temps drop several degrees. A cold front coming through will cause the gulf waters to get a little stirred up and that will only make offshore fishing that much better.

Naples Deep sea fishing charters are going daily from Port of Call Marina located in downtown Naples.

Summer Fishng Patterns In Naples

We are now in our summer fishing patterns here in Naples. When we travel out deep sea fishing we know that several species of fish are available to us in the summer, including king mackerel, mangrove snapper, barracuda, Goliath grouper and most importantly red grouper.

There are several different methods we employ to catch red grouper but the main key is to get them biting. Grouper, like many other fish, can be pack feeders. When one eats, often times all the others, in the area feel like they have to eat as well. That is the reason you often catch red grouper so full you have to wonder where they would have stored your bait had they not been caught.

We have several different techniques to try and start a feeding frenzy with grouper. Sometimes soft baits or chum will get the small fish biting and draw the bigger fish. Grouper are also instinct feeders so jigs ripped off the bottom will also work on occasion.

There are other ways to fire up grouper but the main idea is to get them biting and then get ready for fast and furious action.
