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!

This was a fantastic and fun fishing trip. Captain Tim was a great guy, fun, knowledgeable and knew where the fish were. We met Tim at a boat ramp in south Naples, but he did mention that he travels to different boat ramps depending on the fishing which is excellent. The boat was very well kept and the perfect size...

I took my 5 year old son fishing with Captain Tim on a half day trip and it could not have been a better experience. Tim is very knowledgeable about the local fishing spots and was incredibly good with my 5 year old. We caught a ton of fish including snook, jacks, blue fish, snapper and even a tarpon. I... More

Captain Tim was courteous when I booked a fishing trip for my 83 year old father and myself. It was a beautiful day in the backwater of the 10,000 islands. Tim showed us his technique, which uses fake shrimp lures and an open bale rod. Tricky technique that he wasn't used to: cast, real in a few seconds, jerk the... More

I truly appreciate constructive criticism, and always work towards ways I can better my business to provide a memorable experience to all my clients. However, I am learning I can't win them all. I take out clients that range in age from the very young to quite elderly. Most of my regulars consist of Naples retirees. When you decide to... More

Capt. Tim is a lot of fun, very patient and knows the area like the back of his hand. Looking forward to more adventures chasing after snook and redfish.

I went fishing with Captain Tim on a lark. I had a day off in Naples, and decided to spend a half-day on the water. I got lucky, Tim was available on a hot Florida summer day. His equipment is first class, and he was able to acommodate my disability. He knew all the shady places snook like to hang... More

My friend John & I went fishing with Tim on Friday and had a tremendous day. We moved to several holes and caught numerous Snook with a couple of monsters lost at the boat. We also caught some Jack, Sea Trout, and Snapper. We had a great time with Tim and would highly recommend him for a backwater experience. When... More

We had a great time fishing with Captain Tim. Arrangements were easy to make & Tim was there waiting for us when we arrived. He is very knowledgeable about the area & took us to several different hot spots to fish. The backwater around Marco Island is beautiful & quite peaceful. Captain Tim has lots of tips for more inexperienced... More
