Chokoloskee Eco Fishing Adventure Charter

The Everglades National Park, put simply, is one of the best and most incredible all around saltwater fisheries here in the United States. The Everglades provide the opportunity to target a myriad of species on the fly including tarpon, redfish, snook, jacks, snapper, grouper, and many more. 

One of my favorite things about the everglades is the ever-changing nature of the fishing, as tides, weather, time of year and location play their roles. One day you could be jumping 100+ pound tarpon, then run 25 minutes to sight cast to snook, or chase redfish. You can literally do it all in the Everglades which is why it has become one of my favorite destinations to fish.

The Everglades offers up a massive amount of water and area to fish, which almost leaves you with the sense that you are fishing water no one else has ever thrown a fly into. As you weave in and out of the mangroves running deep into to the glades, it is easy to feel lost, which for me is one of the best sensations while fishing a new locale. Fully relying on the knowledge of your guide and knowing you are exploring an area that only a select few have ever fished is exhilarating. And, as cell phone service transitions from weak to non-existent and any mark of mankind is left far behind, it gets that much better.

I had previously fished Flamingo for baby tarpon but have always wanted to experience the less traveled side of the everglades; Chokoloskee. Fishing out of Everglades City, an old Florida small town located literally in the middle of nowhere but surrounded by some of the best waters in the country, is sort of like going back in time to the 1960s. -Hatch Magazine written by “Fly Fishing for Everglades Snookby Captain Owen Plair.

You will be gliding throughout shallow mangrove lined rivers and creeks onboard the Ultimate in fishing skiff the 22ft Pathfinder with 150 Hp Yamaha 4 stroke with Minnkota Trolling motor and 10ft Talon also features a Garmin gps for safe navigation. 

I use light spin tackle and fly fishing gear. I am happy to help you and give some pointers. I am a strong advocate of the ecology of the area and it’s strictly catch and release.
