The captains over here at on a mission guide service in Naples Florida always find our self in the same predicament. We cannot stress enough to our clients how important it is to be able to use artificial’s. It is so very important! We cannot always find bait. There are times of the year that it is very difficult to find, even if we go out three or four hours before our charter we come back with 10 pieces. Not even enough to fish a half day.
That’s where the artificial game comes to play. Top water and soft plastics even jigs and flies all work wonders if used correctly! I find myself telling my clients this all the time. I probably sound like a broken record but I always say go practice in the backyard in the pond in the pool you don’t even need water. Practice casting in tight situations. Practice learning how to walk the dog with a top water plug correctly. We can coach you through the rest, if you have the simple skills! Also, the payoffs will keep you coming back!
Backcountry game in the Naples area remains strong with these artificial‘s. Lots of big snook everywhere will crush these plugs. Redfish, jacks, trout, juvenile Tarpon. Even had some juvenile bull sharks and black tips completely blast these plugs! Once you hone your skills you will be surprised how fast your angling game will improve. If you want to become a better angler you have to learn how to fish with more than live bait!
Tight lines! The Bedell Captains.
I’m sure on all of my reports this month I have sounded like a broken record. Well this is why! If you’re looking to break that personal best snook record, these big girls are around. They are on the beach they are in the passes they are in the bushes! Cut ladyfish, mullet or thread have been the key. These big fish do not want to chase down any artificial or live bait. They are waiting for the slow easy meal and the benefits are very substantial. The other benefits of using cut bait. The redfish love them sharks and even tarpon. So when we throw these chunks out anything is possible.
The beach fishing & offshore has been very difficult the last week to 10 days. South to south east winds have been ripping and had a lot of things churned up. Still has been some tarpon on the beach when you can get a good bead on them we’ve been having some good hook ups. Lots of sharks to fill the gaps!
We have some availability and lots of good fishing opportunities this summer available with beautiful weather and calm days are ahead. Please reach out to anyone of our captains to book your charter!
Thank you the Bedell Captains

The Snook game remains as solid as possible in the Naples area. These beautiful fish are just about everywhere and chewing. The beach, the bushes, the passes, even the inshore wrecks are holding these fish. Even a few Redfish and juvenile Tarpon too. The clients are slowing down but the fishing is not we are still in our spring mode lots of things around to pull on.
Please reach out to anyone of our captains if you would like to book a charter.
Thank you the Bedell Captains.
