Catch of the Day: Southwest Florida anglers show off their fish

The Naples Daily News and naplesnews.com are showcasing fishing photos from throughout the region. Anyone can submit a photo for inclusion. Ideally, submissions will include a photo of the fish and angler, location, type of bait or lure, fishing and weather conditions or a general description.

Example: Jane Doe of Marco Island caught this 200-pound tarpon while fishing near Doctors Pass with live mullet on a calm morning.

Photos will be selected from the gallery each week and used in our publications, such as the Naples Daily News, The Banner, Marco Eagle and Collier Citizen.

There is no cost associated with submitting content. It's just another chance to brag about your catch. Please email your photo to news@naplesnews.com to be considered for this feature.

Wow.. I didn't even notice there was a fish there at first. Great pic! First commenter needs to get real. Do you shield your family's eyes when you go to the beach too?

Like the headline says, "show off the big ones"!

Wow. Never enjoyed opening Naplesnews.com more.

NDN, Do you remember the day you sold your soul! Sad.

SweetNectar writes:

Did she REALLY catch this herself...or does she and her man need an ego boost?! If you're going to pay that much money for the "big ones" this is a good way to show them off!

What is wrong with you? I don't see anything vulgar in this photo at all. Let's see... beautiful young girl, beautiful big fish, beautiful spring day. Way to go NDN, we need more pics like this to promote good times for tourists in our beautiful state. p.s. If you don't want your youngsters to see a dead fish, then don't let them look, and make sure you cover their eyes everytime you pass by road kill while driving on our streets.

Get a LIFE. You must be a republican. Guns are good, sex is bad.

I agree the photo is disgusting and a new low for the NDN.
Editor: Next time you run a photo of this woman, please do not have her holding a fish.

If the majority of males here would take their eyes off the young ladie's chest long enough to momentarily use their brain,they would see the photo is clearly Photo-shopped(especially her left hand which is painfully obvious & looks deformed & as if its melting.)They would also realize this is not the head of a woman, but a young girl who appears to be a minor. With that said, now where's the photo of a buff young male stud holding his big eel..so we Naples ladies can have a cheap thrill too?

What?! All I said was that there was little risk of drowning. What is wrong with that?!

RedHotMomma writes:

These posts are now meaningless as NDN has chickened out as usual and changed the headline and photo. Which sub editor got scared...?

Notthesame writes:

Dont worry guys she's not a minor, she's actually older than you think.

redsnooktarp writes:

Did she really catch that? Something smells fishy!

You're in luck, red! Young carney at the white house has weighed in and requested that these pictures of fish be removed! The only purpose these fish serve is to make nkorea feel bad about their failed missle launch and the fact that they will get no mo fish!

Take them down, NOW!

If the female in the pic is indeed real, & its not photo-shopped, then good for her for being cute. My point above was simply to provide another perspective, as a female, because I find it entertaining how men,probably old enough to be some young chicks father,begin to verbally drool at her mere image..as if they would even have a chance with them unless their last name was Trump or Heffner. If all is indeed fair in love n' war, then why not give us gals some eye-candy too so you hear us sound like sophmoric ninnys too?

Wow.I remember this posters comment because it one of the few that was tame & reasonable. Nothing inappropriate about it at all. Very disappointing (censorship)Naples News.

Wrong. Guns are good. Sex is good.

Scratching head trying to figure why my comment was removed. I stated that Brown was a troll who moved away from Naples some time ago (his words) and that he is simply trying to get a reaction from everyone with his inane comments here and on other stories. My comment had no vulgarity, no innuendo about the photo, no nothing. What's up NDN?
