9/24/17: After Irma

Hi everyone. I know many of you have been wondering how things were going after hurricane Irma. There is no doubt that it was the worst storm to hit us in a long time. This has effected everyone I know, some much worse than others. Everyone is working together to help those in need, and to clean up and re-build and repair damages. Friends, family, neighbors, and even those who have had differences in the past, are coming together as a whole community. There are many charitable donation sites being set up to help the local residents re-build their communities. I will post these as new info becomes available.

 

But with all of this destruction, I do have some good news to report. All boatNowicki crew windstar fishing club naples florida chokoloskee everglades city s in our fleet came through completely unscathed. All of our captains were able to get their boats and gear out of harm’s way before the storm came. Fishing has been incredible as October always is. Right now we are having 4 hour charters with 30+ redfish along with multiple Snook, Black Drum, Trout, Snapper and more being caught. The bite is on!

 

So many of our customers have contacted us this week asking if everyone is OK and if there is anything they can do to help.

After some conversation with the captains and some serious thought, the unanimous answer has been...

 

“Please let our customers know that we really need them to support us by coming back and fishing charters with us this season”.

The fish are just as hungry as they were before the storm hit and we expect an incredible fishing season just as we experienced after Hurricane Wilma in 2005. If there is a time that we all need support, it is now… and that support is you coming back to fish with us as usual.

Dan Lynch fishing charters everlgades city chokoloskeeSo please, book your charters for the season. Give your loved ones charter gift certificates for their birthdays and holidays. Add a couple more fishing trips to your annual agenda. Life is short. Fish more often with your loved ones. Spend more quality time with friends and colleagues. And it’s good for your health…Reducing daily stress will let you live longer, and what better way to reduce stress than to spend time on the water.

And by the way, it’s a two way street. If you have anything that you need assistance with after hurricane Irma, please let me know. I have been in the area for 28 years and happen to know a lot of people in a lot of different trades and businesses.

 

Thank you for your continued trust and support,

Capt Pete Rapps
