The Fall bell just rung, and we are moving on beyond Hurricane Irma’s impacts – so that means it’s time to dive into Fall fishing! Naples, Florida is one of the top destinations in the state for cooler weather travelers. Right in between Marco Island and Boca Grande, and being dead center to an epic fishery – you cannot go wrong with a Fall vacation, or a Fall fishing trip right here in Naples, Florida.

During the Fall you can actually expect peak fishing times for some of our most sought after nearshore and offshore gamefish species. Naples Fishing Boat runs charters all year long and the Fall season is one of our favorites. Not only is this true because of the fishing itself, but the waters are less busy and we really get the opportunity to enjoy the day with our clients.

For nearshore fishing trips you can expect exceptional Fall fishing. This includes, but is not limited to, the following species that call these waters home:

  • Blackdrum
  • Cobia
  • Flounder
  • Jack Crevalle
  • Pompano

Heading offshore, we can plan for species such as:

  • Amberjack
  • Black Grouper
  • Gag Grouper
  • King Mackerel
  • Lane Snapper

As you can see, cooler waters still equate to hot fishing. Naples, Florida is world renowned for its fishery, and we highly suggest that your next vacation takes place right here. Whether you need a family friendly trip or a day with the boys, Naples Fishing Boat has you covered.

Curious about what Fall weather really means here in Naples? Below I have listed the average highs/lows for the next few months (this is in farenheit):

  • October: 87/67

  • December: 77/55
