Backwater Fishing

Welcome to our Naples Backwater Fishing Page!

Backwater fishing in Naples FL. is a great experience! The term “Backwater” means that you are not out in the Gulf of Mexico. You are in the calm intercoastal waterways surrounded by the mangrove forests in shallow bays and estuaries with an experienced Naples fishing guide.

On this charter you may have up to 6 people. This is a private charter for only your group or family. You will be with a Naples Florida fishing guide who knows the area well and will take you to different spots depending on the number of hours you book. You may choose from a 2, 3, 4, or 5 hour charter. For current prices please visit our price page.

For bait, we may use either jigs or shrimp. We will bait your hooks and take off your fish. You may catch and release or keep whatever is legal. We will fillet it up at the end of the trip. We will be fishing either the mangroves, the bays, the intercoastal waterway, or under the docks behind some of the multi-million dollar homes in Port Royal.

You may catch any of the following depending on time of year, water temperature, water clarity, wind, sun, moon, seasons, etc. Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, Pompano, Permit, Sheepshead, Snapper, Jacks, Ladyfish, Whiting, and others.

If you have small children or a family who would like to mix in some island shelling or dolphin watching with your trip you might try our 3 in 1 Combination trip.

All licenses, bait and tackle are included in your Naples Fishing charter.
Note: We do not allow alcohol on board.
