Everglades Fishing Company LLC – 26'

Slowly gliding through the mangrove pathways as you stalk trophy-sized fish, now that sounds like an adventure! What’s missing from this picture – you. Luckily, the Everglades Fishing Company specializes in putting you smack-dab in the middle of this scenic fishing locale.

Captain Jimmy Wheeler is more than happy to have you on board his 26’ Pathfinder. She’s well-built for fishing the waters around the Everglades – the center console design allows for inshore extravaganza and nearshore action alike. The 300 HP outboard Yamaha engine will get you to all the nearshore wrecks and reefs in no time while the wireless trolling motor allows you to sneak up on the spookiest backcountry fish.

This elite guide service will provide you with all the tools and techniques you need for a fantastic day out. You can hit the waters around the 10,000 islands for Redfish or Snook, the area is famous for the quality of this action. Trophy anglers can look forward to battling the Silver King, so you can finally tick that off your bucket list.

If you prefer fishing bluer waters, Capt. Jimmy will take you to the numerous reefs and wrecks that dot the coastal waters of Everglades City. You’ll go after a wide range of species here, like Amberjack, Cobia, Groupers, Snappers, Pompano, Permit, Sharks, and many more species.

Whether you’re an elite angler chasing the next top-challenge or a beginner dipping his toes into the world of fishing, the Everglades Fishing Company will your trip a memorable one!
