My Professional Experience
My diverse fishing background has gained me the experience of fly fishing and spin casting for everything from pelagic's on the continental shelf to native trout in the pristine lime stone streams of Pennsylvania.  My dedication to improving my skill set and knowledge of local waters, partnered with my 20+ years in the sport, promise to deliver guidance and appreciation of fishing in Naples and her surrounding waters.

My Promise to You
It is my nature that being kind, courteous and respectful is only second to safety in having a fun day on the water!!!  I am a patient teacher, not one to get upset with the novice angler.  At the same time, my 20+ years of experience will ideally even leave the more expert angler with a few new techniques.


"Pete-
That was a great trip! Lots of fish (I think we caught at least 10 different types of fish). Sorry I didn't respond sooner-- my computer has been down over the last few days. The redfish was great blackened. We'll probably be back in Naples next year and we hope to make it out again. This was the experience of a lifetime for my dad-- Thanks for your patience and shared knowledge.

My Personal History
Growing up in New Jersey turned me on to the local game of surfcasting for the elusive striped bass and fly-fishing on the Pequest River for trout.  Looking for my next fishing tale, I explored Canada to the Carolinas in pursuit of my love of the sport.

When I relocated to Naples, Florida, I quickly adapted to the local waters and continued my avid sportsmanship in targeting Tarpon, Snook and Redfish in the near shore and backwaters  of Naples and Marco Island.

Trip Advisor Aug 2016

Last week our family went on a fishing trip with Captain Pete. He was an excellent captain : experienced and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the different kinds of fish we would fish for, very pleasant to spend time with, tireless in making sure everyone was baited and ready to go, and determined to make the whole experience a positive one for everyone involved. If the fish were not biting, we pulled up the anchor and moved to another of his favorite spots. Highly, highly recommended!
