Stroked a few shrimp eaters… the wind has been honking nw for days. Ready for some calm conditions


Crazy how white this redfish was in dark tannic stained waters.. bites staying hot with snook, redfish and tarpon..

I’m not sure how long this epic bite will last but making it count.. huge redfish, not sure how many slots and over slot snook caught today, tarpon and huge bull sharks.

Snook bite remains hot with some really nice redfish and jacks mixed in.. bait is back and super thick..

Hurricane Ian pushed in some really big beautiful snook.. wore em out with Bryan who slammed out in 5 casts… schedule is pretty clear right now with lots of cancellations but fishing is great, restaurants open all over Naples and downtown 5th ave..

Gulfs still rough and sandy but found some mullet and spanking the snook. Naples Inshore Fishing is open for business and the bite is fire..


All good in Naples, Fl.. Pipes has been up since 5am with me watching the wind and rain.. Finally got her chance to go outside to grab some pics.. Powers on, house and boat are good an everyone is safe and happy. We dodged a major bullet but praying for those in its path and surge isn’t as bad as what’s forecast in Naples..

Redfish bite is really picking up on the high water. Snook bite is sporadic but finding some nicer fish and tarpon are showing more and more… Soldier Tournament over the weekend and event dinners were a blast… October is gonna be insane once it cools off


It’s getting right again… big tarpon will make a great showing as we get deeper into Sept and Oct on their way south..

Early morning mini tarpon and mid day reds.. a great combo

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 08/16/2022

It’s been fun in the backwaters with about zero boats around.. small tarpon have been fun, nice redfish on higher water, tons of mangs for fish tacos and a good snook bite but mostly small…

Paul fished with me last yr all the way from San Fransisco. Came back to knock out some bucket lists before moving back to Paris with the family after being in the states the last few yrs during covid. Knocked out the slam with a bonus jewfish to end it. Kids a great angler


Great guys this morning beating on the jewfish, snook and jacks. Had a big jewfish over a 100lbs try to eat one about 20lbs, fired a jack down and game over. Too big to hold but an epic battle in 20ft of water on the International.. few days off for maintenance and hopefully surf before back to fishing.

Shark whacked this juvi tarpon in the last few days but still put on an amazing display. Jewfish bite remains hot…


These things are becoming a crowd favorite since tarpon season as slowed down… what other fish pulls hard and is willing to eat at pretty much any tide in the backwaters.

Early morning tarpon still biting on this big full moon with some bonus offshore snook…

Summertime is family time and catching big snook in the heat was fun today…

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 06/08/2022

Blistered the big snook, 55 snook in 4hrs with around 15 fish between 30-41ln. Nice to have a backup when it’s to rough for tarpon…

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 06/06/2022

Slicked out and stroked em early…

Beat the holiday madness with and got a couple good ones.. still blowing but the tarpon are cooperating.


Absolute giant this morning.. come get some this Summer.

Set a record for oldest anglers to catch a tarpon on my boat. 85 and 81yrs old each got a bucket list fish.. probably my two of my coolest catches in my career

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 05/25/2022

Windy, rough, no sun but grinded it out going 3-7… it sure would be nice if the wind would stop blowing.

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 05/24/2022

The grind is real these days.. rough was an understatement but grinded it out. Finally had to come inside for snook, trout and a bonus juvi tarpon.

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 05/22/2022

Great guys with a quick trip before heading back to Orlando. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve snook fished but with the gulf super rough tarpon weren’t an option early.

Photos from Naples Inshore Fishing's post 05/14/2022

The rewards of tarpon fishing always make the obsession worth it… it’s been a grind so far with high winds, dirty water, no patterns two days in a row, fish swimming every direction but that’s why we love it…


The most amazing fish that swims… bait, plug, fly you pick your poison they are truly what keeps me fishing.

Buzzer be**er.. choppy, weak tide, lost three early then they vanished till this little straggle came rolling through late in the day.
