Carducci’s Coastal Charters

Are you ready for a great day out fishing in the Everglades National Park? Then book a trip with Carducci’s Coastal Charters with Captain Victor today. Capt. Victor has been fishing the Everglades National Park since he was a kid and knows all the best spots to take his customers to. After nearly 3 decades working as an executive chef, he decided to follow his passion and get back on the water full-time.

Spend the day on the “Chef’s Revenge,” a 22’ bay boat that can get into all those hard-to-reach areas. The maneuverability this boat offers gives anglers the best chance of catching their trophy fish. When fishing from the boat, there is enough space for 3 anglers, although it’s ideal for 2 anglers.

The day will be spent targeting Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, and Spotted Seatrout. On longer trips, the day will be split with a 5-hour gap in the middle of the day, to escape the heat of the midday sun. The trip will resume at 4:30 p.m.

On these trips, you’ll have the chance to go wading as well as fishing with artificial lures, popping corks, trolling, and fishing with live bait. Live bait can be purchased the morning of the trip or you can spend time during the trip catching it yourself.

Top quality rods and reels from G-Loomis and Fate Black are included in the price of the trip. Negligent rod and reel damage will be transferred to the customer. You’re welcome to bring along your lucky rods and tackle if you wish.

Children over 8 are welcome on board and there are life vests on board for them. The captain can fillet your catch and pack it for you in zip locks, just don’t forget to tip him for this service. Your fishing license is included in the price of the trip. You’ll need to bring along food and drinks on these trips.

Book a trip with Carducci’s Coastal Charters for an unforgettable day fishing the beautiful 10,000 Islands of the Everglades National Park up to the outer islands.

Captain Victor has been fishing in the Everglades National Park his entire life. He grew up spending his summers on Chokoloskee Island with his father, friends, and family, fishing for Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, and Seatrout. He has spent 27 years working as an Executive Chef and decided it was time to get back to his true love – fishing the Everglades! To tie the 2 parts of his life together, he named his boat the "Chef's Revenge." He has been a licensed captain since October 2018.
