Reviewed June 30, 2015, As a native Neapolitan, I grew up on the Naples beaches and spent many hours fishing on the pier. It's still charming and THE BEST place to view the famous Naples sunset.
Reviewed June 30, 2015, via mobile It was a nice pier. There isn't too much to say about it but it's aesthetically pleasing, probably a good place to fish, and a good place to watch the sunset.
Metered parking along many streets near the pier, but they fill up around an hour before sunset. Get there early and make an afternoon of it and don't plan on leaving until an hour after for the clearest streets.

Located in southwest Florida's Collier County, Naples is part of what's called “The Paradise Coast.” More than 80 percent of Collier County is preserved park land, wetlands and beaches, making Naples an angler's paradise as well.
You can fish the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico offshore; cast a line from a beach, pier or riverbank; or explore the canals and Everglades with an experienced guide. For exciting saltwater sport fishing, try the Gulf of Mexico to catch grouper, several varieties of snapper and king mackerel.
You'll need a boat to fish the backcountry around Naples, especially in the Ten A Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Hiring an experienced local guide will give you a good shot at capturing the big one, but you can bring your own boat as well or rent one at one of the many marinas in Naples.
There are specific guides with extensive knowledge of the Ten A Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. I’ve seen a lot of crazy things on the water over the last 5 years that my clients and I will never forget.

I headed down to Naples yesterday, so I decided to stop by the pier and do some fishing. I stayed fishing near the middle of the pier by the concession stand.
There was plenty of small pilchards to be caught if you had one of those ring bait catchers with the orange strip going down the middle. One guy had a homemade one that was perfect for these small baits.
I started throwing a banana jig for pompano but caught only juvenile marks. Something with the gotcha plug, crappie jig and live pilchards.

Naples used to get these intense schools of Spanish mackerels, but this was a few years ago. I'll be down there from the 18th till 25th, hoping to catch some bait from the pier a few days for Mr. toothy.
I was at the pier this past Saturday and the water looked like there had been a red tide. I did see a guy cleaning 4 or 5 Black Drum he had caught earlier on sand fleas inshore.
I haven't been to Naples in a while, but I'm visiting for a couple of days this weekend; gonna' try and hit the pier since I'm not too familiar with the area.

Amber jack begin to appear on the deeper wrecks, and by month’s end the spring run of mackerel will get underway. May Spanish mackerel, king fish, grouper, snapper and barracuda can be caught.
Large sharks show in the area in conjunction with the spring tarpon run. June Barracuda, Bonita and some mackerel are caught near the surface and grouper and snapper are found on the bottom.
July, August Barracuda, Bonita and mackerel can be caught near the surface and bottom fish for grouper and snapper is steady. It’s near the peak of the Goliath grouper spawning season, so they’re really bunched up on the wrecks and artificial reefs.
September Barracuda and a few large king mackerel are found over the offshore wrecks. October The fall runs of Spanish mackerel and king fish will begin in earnest this month.
December Bottom fishing is approaching the winter peak as the annual inshore migration of gag grouper brings these fish close to shore. A few late season mackerel and king fish are caught in December.
March Trout, bonnet head sharks and some cobra will be caught on the flats. Redfish and shook are possible, and the spring Spanish mackerel run will get underway.
July, August, September Tarpon are good all summer in the bays and rivers. Mangrove snapper in the canals and Spanish mackerel in the open water are both good.

The Latest Algal Bloom & Water Quality / Lake Okeechobee Update and Red Tide Report. We’re mostly focused on Naples fishing the channels, grass flats, passes, oyster bars, mangroves and near shore fishing in Naples, but we also give updates on Naples deep sea fishing. We’re big advocates of catch and release, particularly for shook, but pretty much for most species.
The breadth of the natural ecosystem near Naples is immense and can’t be fully described in this short post. Sometimes we’ll go offshore of Tampa a couple of miles or so if we’re fishing for goliathgrouper, or tarpon or sharks.
A fishing trip is a great family adventure and your children will love it! Perhaps more important to fishing, the Tampa-St. Pete area has a great coastline structure and topography.
Barrier islands stretch close to 70 miles from North Pinellas to Venice. In general, barrier islands mean great fishing habitat because they create passes where fish move on the tides in a concentrated fashion, and also protected back-bay areas for the overall ecosystem.
