Naples is located on the coast of southwestern Florida and has access to the amazing fishery of the Gulf of Mexico, many reefs and wrecks and the 10,000 Islands, including Marco Island. Captain Allen Walburn of A&B Charters has been fishing these very productive waters for over 40 years and loves to share his knowledge. A&B Charters has been voted the best charter fishing company for seven consecutive years.
Captain Allen Walburn has been running and operating A&B Charters since 1977 and loves to share his knowledge. He loves to fish and brings a lifetime of experience, and he knows of spots only known to him and maybe a few others that are very productive with fish.
The A&B is a 40’ custom-built Sea Hawk that is comfortable, safe and designed to fish. The boat can easily accommodate up to 14 anglers on its 14’wide beam. Even with that many on board, you will not get tangled lines and still fish in comfort. The A&B has a sunshade that covers the entire fishing area. It also has a private head and a comfortable cabin. If you have a larger party, the A&B is the only fishing charter on Marco Island with room for more than six anglers.
Captain Allen fishes nearshore in the wrecks and reefs for Snapper and Grouper, Tripletail, Mackerel and Barracuda and Sharks. Or go or go further into the Gulf to target Kingfish, Amberjacks, Cobia and giant Snapper and Grouper
Captain Kenny trolls for Kingfish and Barracudas nearshore, bottom fishes the wrecks and reefs for tasty species of Snappers and Groupers, and uses light tackle to hook up with Permit, Cobia, Amberjacks, Mackerel and more.
There are a few charters to choose from. Going 8-20 miles into the Gulf, you can spend a half day fishing for Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel and Barracuda. A full day on the water will have you going out 25-40 miles for wreck fishing Goliath Grouper and other Grouper and Snapper varieties, as well as Kingfish, Barracuda, Cobia and more. And for a more exciting charter, head to the Tortugas for a few days fishing for some much larger fish. Split parties can also be arranged.
Everything is provided for you on your charter, and your license, bait and tackle are all included. You only need to bring comfortable clothing, sunscreen, slip-proof shoes, polarized sunglasses and a camera to capture your excitement. A cooler is offered for any food or beverage you want to take on board too.
If you are looking for a fishing trip, you will always remember a day with Captain Allen on board the A&B will be filled with action, fun and fish.
