Mangrove Snapper are Active

20100210-014Mangrove snapper fishing remains very good for our fishing charters going out on full and 1/2 day charters. We are catching lots of mangroves using live shrimp on light lines, with small hooks or white bucktail jigs. Captain Kriag has consistently produced limits and near limits of nice snapper for the last ten days. Sportfishing charters going out from Naples can expect to fish in about 35 feet of water 10 miles offshore and about 85 feet of water 35 miles offshore right now. On full day fishing charters we are also catching amberjack and cobia. Spring is in the air and fishing will continue very good right through the Easter holiday.

Mangrove snapper are feeding like crazy right now. On our most recent fishing charter into the Gulf of Mexico our clients all limited out on mangrove snapper. After limiting out they continued fishing and caught several more which were released. We also caught nine gag grouper that ranged between 10 and 18 pounds that were also released. King Mackerel have now begun to migrate north and are offshore of Naples in very large numbers. We caught a few yesterday and within two weeks anglers fishing with us with be catching large numbers of these fish as well as the grouper and snapper. Fishing charters departing from Naples can continue to expect very good fishing on both full and 1/2 day charters. See for yourself why well feel late winter and early spring are some of the best times to go on a fishing charter in Naples, Florida.

Great Offshore Fishing As Front Passes

Captain Curt Dafcik with 2 Grouper, Naples FL.Offshore fishing charters in Naples remains very good and is especially hot today, as this front passes through southwest Florida. Ledge fishing remains very good using live shrimp to catch gag grouper and mangrove snapper.

Thirty five miles offshore on some of the wrecks cobia can be caught using live pinfish or artificial plugs. The front that is passing by over super bowl weekend will give us a day off before regrouping on Monday.

We expect deep sea fishing to remain extremely good right through the spring.

Little Guys Like Fishing Too

Kids FishingWe get asked all the time, what age should children be to go on a deep sea fishing charter? The answer is there is no age limit. We normally take children of all ages but have found those about six and older can really have fun fishing and are able to catch fish. Our offshore charters will go into the Gulf of Mexico from 2 -40 miles depending on a host of conditions. We try our best to stay away from rough waters but that can’t always be avoided. For those times when the weather becomes poor our customers are happy to know that our boats come with an enclosed cabin and comfortable seating. The sides on our boats are high to prevent falling overboard, especially the little ones. When you go on a fishing charter out of Naples with us, rest assured our boats have been inspected annually by the U.S. Coast Guard to assure as much safety as possible in the open ocean. With all of our safety features and creature comforts, parents should feel at ease when fishing offshore with their children. Kids have fun fishing with us and are some of our best customers.
