What will we be fishing for?

Sport fishing is year-round in Southwest Florida. Tarpon, snook, and redfish abound in the warmer months and can be caught in the winter if the weather is mild. Cooler temperatures bring in sea trout, pompano, sheepshead, and drum. Jack crevalle, ladyfish, snapper and more fill in the rest of the day with tight lines and bent rods. The weather and the tides play a major factor in what is biting. The beauty of this area is you never know what the next cast might bring.
What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations due to dangerous or deteriorating weather conditions will be refunded the entire deposit the day of the trip. The calendar only lends itself to a certain number of days to fish. When a client has an issue with a date, I try to accommodate every request to postpone or move dates around if necessary. A trip cancelled over two weeks in advance by the client will have the deposit returned in full. Trips cancelled inside of two weeks of the agreed upon fishing date(s) will be subject to forfeiture of the deposit. I will do everything possible to re-book the date with another client and if that is possible then the deposit will be returned.
What time and where do we meet?

We can discuss the available options before the trip. Most trips will leave from the Calusa Island Marina in Goodland (385 Angler Drive Goodland, FL 34140) minutes from Marco Island and about 30 minutes from Naples. Other departures include Pine Island, Estero Bay, Naples, Marco Island, and Everglades City.
Generally we will leave at 7AM or 1PM depending on what time you request at booking. During the winter, a later departure might be more comfortable as the temperatures rise quickly when the sun gets up high. Also, in the summer, nothing beats the early morning bite so an earlier departure may be appropriate.

I have a large group of anglers. Now what?

This is often the case in the Naples area. Corporate trips or large families can be accommodated with advance notice. Finding another boat to carry other members of your party is an option. I often work with the most qualified guides in the area to fill spots for larger groups. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a referral you can count on. I will only refer guides that I have complete confidence will do a good job.

What type of skiff do we fish on
The Maverick Mirage HPX is a totally revolutionary skiff designed for the most dedicated shallow water anglers. The HPX hull is constructed using VARIS™ technology. It is lighter, faster, drier, floats shallower and poles quieter than any other boat on the market today. The new Maverick Mirage HPX is ground zero for the next generation of high performance, poling skiffs. Powered by a Yamaha 4 stroke outboard, this skiff gets us to where the fish are.
