We have gone off shore fishing through South Bay Marina for the past 2 years. We have always been very happy with Justin as our guide. The trip out to the gulf is beautiful and offers glimpses of a wide variety of birds as well as great views of the beautiful homes which line the intercoastal waterway out to the gulf. We've even seen dolphins surfacing in the bay. We went about 5 miles offshore before setting anchor and dropping our lines. We reeled in fish as fast as Justin could rebait our hooks. Justin cleaned the fish upon our return to the marina and we enjoyed a delicious fish dinner the same evening.

South Bay Marina has SO much to offer. Justin was a professional, helpful, and patient captain who led us to a plethora of fish frenzy spots. Whether an exhilarating shark, eye-catching silver trout, or tasty snapper every catch will elicit a thrill. You are sure to walk away with a delightful, delicious catch with the potential for a fish taco dinner post- charter! Will definitely return to enjoy a fishing day at South Bay again!

We took a backwaters fishing trip with Jeremiah on a deck boat. There were 5 of us plus the guide and we were very comfortable. Jeremiah knows the hot spots and we were constantly catching fish. Nothing big which disappointed him, but we were having a great time catching lots of sheep's head, catfish, ladyfish, a sting ray, and a puffer. He baited our hooks with shrimp and helped us learn the best ways to catch certain fish. My son is 9 and Jeremiah was great at teaching kids. We also saw a dolphin and a manatee. We go to Naples about once a year and had never done this but will be calling South Bay and asking for Jeremiah every year going forward.

We have been out with Capt. Justin on multiple trips. Justin always puts us on the fish. You just need the ability to catch them. He is our go to guild when fishing the Naples area. I highly recommend him and the crew at South Bay Marina. You will not be disappointed.

This bait store was walking distance from our condo. We would bring our shrimp bucket down and the friendly girl would fill it up. $5.50 a dozen and pretty good size shrimp. They also have boat, kayak, and paddle board rentals. They have all your fishing supplies and a few snacks inside.

A group of five of us booked a full day off shore trip with Justin and had the best day fishing we've ever had. We're all local South West Floridians and go fishing often. This was by far the best! We caught grouper, yellow tail snapper, porgy, and even brought a huge shark to the boat! If you want to catch fish all day non stop, this is the Captain to call!

My husband, Josh and I booked a half day morning fishing Charter in May. Honestly we had the best time. He was smiling the entire time and could not keep a line in the water because of all the action. We're from Northern Ontario so Josh's passion is fishing which he does all the time, whereas I can take it or leave it....but this we would both do again in a heartbeat. Cpt. Justin was great. On our way home he even stopped the boat so I could see the dolphins!! Worth the splurge financially.

Another excellent have day charter with Capt Justin
Since our last trip 12 months ago, Capt Justin has totally refurbished the boat, adding lots of what I am sure are very expensive gadgets, which now ensure no rolling of the boat, great addition for those who may suffer from motion sickness.
Also caught a 225lb Goliath Grooper in addition to 30 additional fish of all types

Justin and Amanda were fantastic. My father in law, brother in law and myself had the best time. We caught at least 9 different species and lots of action. We would recommend this group to everyone.
