Capt. Tony Fontana Naples, Florida fishing charter service. I frequently target Tarpon, Snook and Redfish in the backwaters of Naples, Florida.
Operating as usual
Mike landed this nice triple tail last week on a half day. Mike cast a shrimp toward the fish that was sitting under a crab bouy an it quickly inhaled our offering. Seconds later the hooked pulled out and our hearts sank fearing we had missed our opportunity at the fish. Remarkably the fish swam right back to the bouy we had just hooked it on. Mike's second cast was well received and the fight was on! Fishing with shrimp has still provided the most action but, I will begin to fish pilchards within the next few weeks when the water temps reach the 70's. The fish was landed on a bull bay 8-17# stealth rod penn battle III 3000 with spider wire 10# braid
I swear this dog is trying me....
Loving the looks of my new bull bay banshee.
Come on south Florida! Ice really?!?!
Norm was super excited about this nice redfish we caught this afternoon. Shrimp and a Cajun thunder got the job done.
Traditional Cioppino. Start with Olive oil, Butter, fennel,onion,celery,carrot. Clarify the onions and then add fresh fish. After 3 minutes add v8 and various fish stocks (shrimp and lobster) simmer for 20 minutes then add shellfish and bring to a boil. Don't forget the saffron.
Apparently Australian Shepherds don't like koala bears...
John with a beautiful over slot snook to start the day.
Juvenile tarpon are just so much fun. All the overcast skies have made them a viable option throughout the day.
Great day with Jay and Chuck. Steady tarpon, snook and redfish bite. The fall bite has been great!
Lots of redfish around right now. Annie and Rich caught snook, redfish and big jack crevelle on a halfday trip this am.
Who is excited about redfish? Danny certainly was! Great day catching snook and reds with beautiful weather.
I'm pleased to join the @bullbayrods team. I have reoutfitted
Perfect start to the day.
A rum and River tonight. We got River a red merle aussie last Saturday. He is shaping up to be my partner in crime.
Very cool shot of a great egret that visits all the guide boats when we return. He's always looking for a easy meal.
Added a nice accent to the house. Drawing in ink done by @manny_puig_. I built the frame out of reclaimed ipè wood. Came out awesome.
Whole beef tenderloin sous vide in veal fat and rosemary now searing on a blazing flat top. Gonna be one for the books.
Never gets old.....
Good start to Saturday. @thequalifiedcaptain .
The sled is looking fresh thanks to @awlgripfinishes and @allwatercustoms. Couldn't be happier with the new pads. A small investment of time and money made me feel like I have a new office! Also thanks to @_surf_and_turf_ for the hospitality.
Big American reds, scamp, mangs and a big copper belly to top it off.
Snook! On the days the Tarpon don't want to play they are a great backup. I like to use a 1/4 to 1/2oz jig head and a pilchard to catch them in the passes.
Some tarpon action early this am.
Nice to start the day.
Great day today with @_surf_and_turf_ . Henley and his sons, who did a great job helping me clean up Naples Bay. We were participating in the @captainsforcleanwater fishing guide relief fund event. We cleaned up a shameful amount of plastic and Styrofoam and also found some real "trophies" out there. I encourage everyone to get out, share some laughs, and be a steward of our waterways!
Beautiful snook caught by Larry to finish the day!
Giant stag horn fern we have growing on an oak. The plant has been on the tree for over 30 years!
Hot weather has the bougainvillea fired up
The masters may be postponed but my front lawn doesn't know!
A full moon setting over a foggy field.
Every year for easter all my jasmine bloom. The bloom is typically the star of the family gathering due to its scent. This year will be different do to the c one niner but it still brightens the day.
