Have boat in North Captiva, looking for local guide!

Hello everyone.  I am going to North Captiva for a week and I am brining my boat.  Looking for a guide to jump on our boat and take us out.  Know anyone who does this? Also, if not, what is good to fish for this time of the year off of a boat?  I know to look for snook off the beaches but I am willing to venture further out.  I have a 25 Angler that can draft pretty shallow.  Thanks in advanced.

    Look up some of the public artificial reef numbers. There'll be mangrove snapper all over them this time of year, with bigger ones biting at night. Those spots get a lot of pressure, so chumming heavily and using small baits on light jigheads with long 20-lb fluoro leaders is usually the ticket.
    Paddle faster, I hear banjo music.
