Captain Brock Wagner

Fish the Everglades National Park, otherwise known as the 10,000 Islands, with Captain Brock Wagner. With 23 years of experience on these waters, he has a detailed understanding of the best local places to fish. Join him to experience one of the most amazing fisheries the USA has to offer and enjoy some world-class fishing, targeting prized species on the pristine waters of the Everglades.

The captain’s boat of choice is a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat, restored as recently as 2018. It’s powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine and features Ray Marine GPS, fish finder, and a T-Top for protection from the Florida sun. There is plenty of storage room on board and enough space for 3 guests to fish comfortably at the same time.

Captain Brock will provide you with everything you need to fish. You’ll be equipped with top-notch Tsunami gear, your fishing license for the day is covered by the charter, and any bait you need will be either caught or bought by the captain depending on the season you’re fishing in.

Another thing that’s season-dependent is which species you’ll be able to target, catch, keep, and release. If you have a particular target in mind for your trip and would like to know what the best time window to target it is you should consult with the captain before booking your trip.

Parking at meetup location costs $10 per car and it’s located near various stores and breakfast places. Things you should remember to pack for your trip are food, drinks, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Now the last remaining thing is to check the captain’s calendar, find a date that works for you both and start planning your Everglades fishing adventure!
