Capt Nick Pasquarello - Southwest Florida Fishing GuideCapt Nick Pasquarello is a fishing guide out of Naples, Florida. My first experience with fishing, like many people, was with my dad. He took my two brothers and me fishing for snapper off the pier in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn – I was hooked. My passion for fishing was evident by the many jobs I’ve had working on fishing boats. My love for fishing pushed me to pursue a degree in Fishing and Marine Enterprises.

Soon after, I decided to switch gears and seek a rewarding career in law enforcement; however, I never lost my desire for fishing. After retiring from public service, my wife, children, and I knew that living in beautiful Naples, Florida was a dream come true. Soon after settling in Naples, we purchased a boat and practically fished and toured the waters surrounding the Naples area every day. Whether you want to adventure out peacock bass fishing in the Golden Gate Canal or go Everglades bass fishing, I have you covered! My hope is that I can share my wonderful experiences with you!

Mark Rose, Good Fishing

Southwest Guides
Even though the weather was too cold for really hot fishing and many fishing parties were getting skunked, our guide, Mark Rose got us onto really nice fish. Cichlids, largemouth (some three to four pound),peacocks, oscars, and some enormous bowfin. He he knew ho to find the fish. He also to took us into some nice quiet gator country and showed us the sights. We had great day! Thanks Mark
