Naples, FL

Service Areas:


Capt Rick Mitchell is a full-time Naples fishing guide. Rick played college football at Bowling Green State University and commissioned as a second lieutenant in the US Army. After twenty-five years of active duty service, Rick and his family moved to Naples, FL where he has been guiding since 2011.

Rick has fished all over the country while in the military. When he is not fishing he is very active with the local fishing clubs and at the professional level with the FLW Costa / BFL series and the American Bass Angler Southern Division.

Rick is literally on the water every week preparing for a fishing guide or professional tournament. He is very proficient with the various fishing techniques in Southwest Florida (artificial, shiners, and saltwater) and will cater to all your needs. The main lakes that I focus on are Lake Okeechobee, Golden Gate Canal System, Lake Trafford, and the Everglades.

Capt Rick likes to start early but is open and flexible to your scheduled start time. Also offers a trip in the morning and afternoon. Included in all trips, is the boat, fuel, cooler, ice, bottled water, and all tackle & equipment necessary for fishing. The trip ends when your ready; having a great time, let’s continue.

Capt Mark is knowledgeable in light tackle, as well as flipping, pitching techniques in all the surrounding waterways. Kids, veterans, pets, and disabled anglers are more than welcome to join my adventures.

I love to share my passion and knowledge with you, all while putting you on fish. Living and fishing in the areas provide me the ability to have a superior experience on Okeechobee. Contact me below with any questions you may have.

Peacock Bass in Golden Gate

Rick Mitchell
We had a great time fishing with Rick in Naples for Peacock Bass! We went out with Rick two times over the Christmas break. We caught a bunch of fish and look forward to going out again next year. Rick was great at communicating before the trip and made sure we had everything we needed. His boat and equipment were excellent. Thanks Rick!

Inshore mania

Rick Mitchell
Rick took my two teenage boys and I out 3/22/21 from Goodland towards the Ten Thousand Island area. We caught and released a snook on the first cast and the action remained all day despite the wind. Rick kept us on fish all day. Snook, barracuda, jacks, mangrove snapper, blue runners, red fish, a shark and I’m sure I’m forgetting a couple. Great day!!!
