Fish on the Mangroveman Charters with an experienced, life-long Fisherman (commercial Fishing on large Offshore boats and Private Sports-fishing Charters in South and SW Florida since over two decades). The actual time on the water is 2h45min for the 3-hour long fishing trip or 3h45min for the 4-hour long fishing trip. 15 minutes out of the water are alloted for the Captain to clean and bag your catch for you to bring home or to have one of the Naples' restaurants cook it for you.
If you want your catch cleaned the Captain will do that skillfully and with minimal waste and bag your catch so you can easily cook your fish as soon as you get home. Some Naples restaurants will also cook your catch for you.
