AARedfishFelicity LLC - Chokoloskee

Get ready for exciting inshore action with a strong customer focus. Join Captain DJ for a variety of trips on the beautiful waters of Everglades National Park and find out what AARedfishFelicity LLC is all about. Capt. DJ is a US Navy veteran with an honest attitude towards his business and his life in general. He’s also great with kids—so bring the whole family for a day to remember. He tailors each trip to the client at hand and will never stop on the hunt for great fish.

And there are plenty of fish to go after. Your trip could see you reeling in Redfish, Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Black Drum, Tripletail, and more. With such a variety of species, you will need a mix of quality equipment to get the most out of your day. That’s exactly what you get, with the option to spin, jig, pop, drift fish, bottom fish – you can even bring your fly rod along if you want to!

Capt. DJ’s 18’ Hewes flats boat was born to dominate these shallow waters. Fresh off the line in 2018, the boat can carry three guests out in comfort and at speed. She has an i-Pilot trolling motor to get you into the skinniest waters around and a pair of 8’ Power Poles to keep you rock-steady when you find the fish.

AARedfishFelicity LLC has trips to fit any schedule or budget, with four, six, and eight-hour charters at starting times to suit you. Children age 7 and above are welcome on board, and life vests will be provided for them.

All rods, reels, lures, and licenses are included, as is the cleaning and filleting of all your fish. Just bring your food, drinks, sunscreen, and shades. You’ll find plenty of excitement already waiting onboard!
