Captain DJ is a US Navy veteran with one simple mission on all the trips he runs: “no bull, just honesty and integrity in making sure that every trip is unique and enjoyable to my clients.” With AARedfishFelicity LLC, this is exactly what you can expect! Capt. DJ is the most kid-friendly captain in the Everglades, he’s eager to share his love of fishing with them. He will give his all on every trip to make sure you have a productive and memorable time while fishing the beautiful waters of Everglades National Park.

You will be spending the day onboard Capt. DJ’s C-Hawk powered by a 225 HP Honda engine. This center console will let you move effortlessly in the shallow waters of Everglades National Park.

You have a huge range of species you can go after on your trip, from Redfish and Trout to Tarpon, Snook, and even Sharks. You also have the option to jig, pop, spin, drift bottom fish, and even fly fish if you bring your own gear. You will be provided with quality conventional rods and reels, and a variety of lures to tempt even the fussiest fish around.

This is a chance to dive deep into the heart of Southern Florida. You can explore the endless backwaters of the Everglades National Park. Children of all ages are welcome and Capt. DJ has life vests for them. 

Customers will get to fish with Star rods. Lures and licenses are also included, and Capt. DJ will even clean and fillet your fish after the trip. Just bring your food, sunscreen, bug repellant and plenty of energy – Capt. DJ will put it to good use!

Capt. DJ sprays the entire boat, tackle, and all hard non-porous surfaces with a product that has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to Covid 19. Lysol disinfecting wipes are also available and the Captain always wears a mask.
