The OAM team just got back from a long extended stay and a little R&R in the keys. We were welcomed with the first day of Fall and this beautiful 41 inch Snook our first day back to work!
As we enter the first week of October lots of things are happening here in Southwest Florida. The Tarpon are doing backflips in the bait pods off the beach in the morning. Snook, Redfish and Trout will all be out on the beach’s gorging on all of the pilchards. The inshore wrecks are loaded with big Snook, Cobia, Spanish mackerel and a plethora of Snapper.
The OAM team will also have a sister boat to our Sobalo. It is a 22 foot Privateer and will be running trips on it starting in October. We will now be able to accommodate larger parties and overflow.
We are looking forward to a very busy season we are already starting to see the tourist show up the car carriers are making their way down so please book accordingly. Do not wait. Do not hesitate.
Book with anyone of our captains today!
Thank you the Bedell Captains
Naples Inshore and Offshore Fishing Charters
Naples Pre-Fall Fishing Report
The pre-fall fishing in Naples, Florida is right on schedule. The air and water temperatures really haven’t cooled down but we are seeing some fishy fall patterns already starting to take place.
This Labor Day weekend was very busy in the backcountry so we did sneak out to some of the inshore wrecks and they paid off very well. Spanish mackerel seem to be everywhere and some big ones in the mix. Even some larger Snook and mangrove snapper are eating the pilchards on these wrecks. Lots of barracudas in the mix. Goliath grouper‘s. Also a plethora of black tips and spinner sharks have moved into our region! Also the back to back hurricanes that have passed us by the skin of our teeth. Have moved extreme numbers of triple tail into our area. The stone crab traps are not even out yet and we are seeing floaters everywhere, anticipating October very much!
This is one of our slowest months of the year. It sure doesn’t feel like it, we are still doing 3 to 4 trips a week. Lots of late shoppers and callers but with our schedules wide-open they have the best pic of weather days. So please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our captains to book your families charter!
Thank you, the Bedell Captains.
Fishing in September in Naples, Florida. We love this month around here. This is our slowest month of the year. We don’t mind. No one at the ramp or on the water. Yes you can pick any shoreline you like. Bait is absolutely everywhere. So are the gamefish!
Our calendars are very spotty at best for September. One here, one there. This will change the closer we get to October. We will have 2 bay boats this season to cater to the larger parties and with overflow. Please reach out to any one of our captains to book your trip of a lifetime!
Thank you. The Bedell Captain’s.
