Everglades National Park and the 10,000 Islands

Fish Caught

I've been a guide out of Everglades City for over twenty years now but I'm originally from Cape Cod and it's been a long and circuitous route I've followed to the Everglades. Some of those turns included the Delaware Valley and the Susquehanna River in New York, The Bighorn, the Gallatin, the  Missouri, the Snake, the Henry's Fork and the Madison out west as well as the Keys and now the 'Glades.  I guide mostly fly rodders though I still slip onto the darkside with spinning and baitcasting tackle periodically and I'm on the water in Everglades National Park over two hundred days each year.



With over 1.5 million acres, Everglades National Park , is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. Within that acreage lies the largest strand of protected mangrove estuary in the western hemisphere. There are hundreds of species of fish in the Everglades but there's three that we're going to target on the flats, tarpon, redfish and snook, those are the ones we'll be fishing for, and this is where we're going to find them, the 'Park,' one of the Last Best Places.

About Us

These are guided 'flats style' fishing charters. Most of my anglers are fly rodders and we fish by sight whenever possible but I enjoy light tackle too and it's not unusual to find a couple of spinners or a baitcaster under the gunnels. My place is right in Everglades City, Florida, the northern entrance to Everglades National Park, and my charters usually depart from my dock on Panther Creek. We can also launch from Chokoloskee Island on those days when our plan is to fish farther south in the backcountry or when we're headed for Lostman's River and points beyond.
