Local Knowledge of SWFL

Incredible inshore fishing awaits you in southwest Florida’s network of bays. Local Knowledge of SWFL does exactly what it says in the name. Let Captain Mike Hatcher show you his backyard. A Naples native, he grew up with a rod in one hand and has been running charters for over 15 years. He learned from the best in the region and hopes to impart on you the skills and knowledge he’s gained from a lifetime on the water.

His 21’ Release flats boat is the perfect vessel for navigating these shallow waters. A light boat, she’ll keep you comfortably afloat in the shallow waters, and will whizz across the open bays at speed thanks to the 150 HP Yamaha engine. The wireless trolling motor will kick in on the skinny waters, giving you the chance to creep up quietly on your spooky prey.

Depending on the season, you may find a livewell full of bait, or you’ll catch some as you head out to the fishing grounds. Either way, you’ll have plenty of shrimp to entice the bite of your target fish. You’ll have full use of brand new Shimano rods and Daiwa reels, giving you the edge over whatever you want to catch.

You’ll have your pulses racing as you target such prized species as Tarpon, Snook, and Jack Crevalle. Come and see for yourself why anglers all over the world flock to western Florida to battle it out with these monsters. You’re in for some rod-bending action throughout!

Using light tackle, you’ll also try to fill the boat with some delicious fish. Go after some classic inshore favorites such as Sheepshead, Redfish, Snapper, Trout, and many more, to head home with a tasty treat.

At the end of the trip, your captain will clean and prepare your catch so you’re ready to cook it up right away. You’ll find everything you need, and more, on board with Local Knowledge of SWFL. Just bring some food and drink to fill the onboard cooler, and dress appropriately. Come and make the most of Naples Bay and its surrounding area!

A local to the Naples area, Capt. Michael has been fishing since he can remember. He's been able to make a profession out of his passion since 2003, and specializes in taking customers inshore fishing, despite his experience in offshore fishing too. He loves showing guests the incredible nature of western Florida and hopes to share his knowledge with everyone, as his mentors did to him.
