Summertime and the living’s easy. Summer fishing here in south Florida can be a bit tricky with the weather. Those pesky afternoon thunderstorms begin to pop up in the afternoons to the point to where you can set your clock to it. And here lately, we have been seeing more rain than usual. That can be said for the entire state of Florida. But we don’t let that get in the way of the phenomenal fishing that can be had this time of year and soon enough we’ll be back on our regular rain routine.
What’s good about fishing out of Naples is the fact that we have incredible fishing nearshore, without the long boat ride. These shorter trips are perfect in beating those afternoon thunderstorms but without having to sacrifice the fishing. Half day trips (4-5 hours) are plenty of time to get in on some great action. In only 15 miles or so, we’ll be in prime waters to target Spanish mackerel, kingfish, snapper, grouper, cobia, shark and much more. These shorter trips are also great for the kids! So bring the whole family for some spectacular summertime fishing.
Fishing wrecks are some of the most exciting type of nearshore fishing you can do. Not only do you not know what is going to take your bait at any given time, but the thrill of having to pull it out and away from the wreck before it can dive down and break you off is exhilarating. The water temps have the massive goliath grouper fishing getting better and better. Cobia and permit are also in the mix. Lane snapper, sharks and a few keeper sized grouper are also in the mix. This mixed bag of fish provides steady action for hours as well as being able to fill the cooler so that you can enjoy your catch long after the fight is over.
These fish will be wrangled in from the comfort of a custom restored 34’ Crusader Sportfish that can also be taken offshore as well as nearshore for full day trips. Be sure to contact captain Hunter Robertson with any questions and/or concerns.
