Fishin Knotty with Capt Shawn Smith

Capt. Shawn Smith Naples, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Experience the best Naples fishing possible with Fishin Knotty with Captain Shawn Smith! We specialize in light tackle fishing in Southwest Florida. Our priority is giving you a professional, fun, and safe Florida fishing charter that will have you coming back for more.

Captain Shawn Smith will be your guide on your outdoor fishing charter adventure. He has been fishing in Naples since 1999. Nobody can get you to all the fishing hotspots better than him. He has entered several local tournaments over the years and finished with better results each time. With some serious persuasion from some friends, and after fishing 5th in the Southern Back Water Series Redfish Tournament Grand Championships, and fishing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, in a few charity tournaments the same year, he had the confidence in his fishing ability to take it to the public.

He’s now a fully licensed and insured USCG Captain and has been guiding full time now for the past 7 years. He couldn’t have made a better decision to do what he truly loves to do. He gets the same enjoyment watching someone catch their first species, or that fish of a lifetime, as he would with himself. He loves to share what he knows with anyone, even fellow guides, and make it a point to learn something new every day. He takes pride in the fact that he offers the best equipment available to his customers, as it is the same equipment he uses personally.

Your fishing adventure with Capt. Shawn will begin in Naples and could go on to explore the nearby areas of Marco Island, Estero Bay, and the Ten Thousand Islands.

Fishing will be done off of Capt. Shawn’s 24ft bay boat that is perfect for Naples fishing charters. She is powered by a 300hp Evinrude Etec engine and that will get us to all the fishing spots in a very timely manner. On deck, you will find all the latest safety and navigational equipment, a livewell, a wireless trolling motor, power poles, and an icebox.

Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome on our trips. Each trip will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and a fishing license. We will also clean and package any catch you are able to keep at the end of each trip.

South Florida is full of exciting species and Capt. Shawn will make it a personal goal to put you right where they are at. Some of the species you can expect to see on our trips include Black Drum, Cobia, Flounder, Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Kingfish, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, and many more!

Book a trip with Fishin Knotty with Captain Shawn Smith today for an amazing fishing charter adventure you will never forget! Tight lines, and great fishing everyone!
