Attraction details
Owner description: Captain Tim Daugherty welcomes angles of all experience levels, children & adults, from the beginner to the seasoned pro. Southwest Florida offers some of the finest backcountry light tackle fishing in the world. The Southwest coast including Estero Bay, Naples, Marco Island, and down through the 10,000 Islands offers some of the finest backcountry light tackle spin & fly fishing in the country. This area lends us pristine bays, mangroves, oyster bars, tidal estuaries, and passes. Our paradise contains miles of shorelines and grass flats attracting some of the best in shallow water fishing. The four most sought after game fish including tarpon, snook, trout, and redfish can be targeted on a year round basis. Backcountry fishing is so popular because it typically offers protected year round calm waters. Whether it's fly fishing the grass flats or sight fishing the white sand beaches and mangroves you are sure to always have an amazing experience out on the water!

“Puts You On The Fish!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Booked a half day afternoon trip with Capt. Tim last week when we were down in Naples. Even though a cold front came through a few days before the trip and a lack of good fishing reports we still were not disappointed. We worked many spots, both out front in the Gulf and in the backcountry. The fishing wasn't spectacular but it was no fault on the captain. Ladyfish kept the lines tight all day. Planning on booking him again in the summer for tarpon and snook.

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Our experience with Captain Tim was phenomenal! He took my mom, sister and I out on a four hour fishing trip in January. None of us were any where near experienced in fishing but he took the time and was very patient in teaching us. He knew the right spots to go at the right times and just seemed to always know where the fish would be. We each caught multiple fish, mostly ladyfish and some spotted sea trout. We saw dolphins and all sorts of birds and beautiful wildlife. Captain Tim also made the trip complete with some great stories about everything from birds to barracudas, sharks and dolphins. We loved every minute of our relaxing and fun afternoon and plan to go back during the warmer months when you can catch some bigger fish and even try for sharks! This trip was definitely the highlight of our vacation to Naples!

“Great Time”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

My wife and I went on a half day fishing trip with Captain Tim in the morning. The fishing was awesome! We caught probably around 30 fish mostly snook and some sea trout, amberjack, and ladyfish. Captain Tim just seemed to know where to find them. It was a great experience. We will definitely do it again!

“Great fun that made our holiday FANTASTIC !!!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I tool my boys ages 11, and twins at 10 to fish with Captain Tim. We have visited Naples this time of year for the past four years. My boys have only every fished twice before so were excited to see what the day would bring. On arriving Tim was very welcoming and explained things in a fun way. With captains Tim's help we pulled out a total of 40 fish it was great. We all said that this trip has made our time in Naples the best ever !! We will be coming again next year and cannot wait to fish again with Captain Tim.

“Great Fishing Trip/ Highly Recommend”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Captain Tim was great and put us on the fish. Our first stop Captain Tim went over how to fish the area we would be in, and while I know alot about fishing I didn't really know much about saltwater fishing so this was helpful. My wife and I were were catching fish within minutes of casting our first time. We were catching tons of snapper, snook, trout, jack, redfish, and even an occasional mackeral. I just about caught a grand slam at the first spot, if I could have gotten a tarpon I would have accomplished it. Remember we are still at the first spot and the sun is barely coming over the horizon. We caught so many fish before the day was over our arms were sore. I also noticed through the day other captains were calling Tim to find out where the fish were biting. Tim also pointed us to Capri Fish House to have our catch cooked, which was great. Cant wait to go back and try the fly fishing next time.
