Hook'd On Recovery

Join Hook’d On Recovery Charters for your chance to explore the beautiful Everglades area, and have a productive fishing trip! Captain James Cordiano has been freshwater fishing all his life. He made South Florida his home 10 years ago, so he’ll have no problem putting you on the fish.

His 14’ Tracker Jon boat is perfect for getting into remote areas off the beaten path, and fishing in some of the hard-to-reach places. It can take 2 people fishing at the same time, and it has a cooler on board, so you don’t have to bring one. There are life jackets on the boat for your safety, so you can enjoy your time on the water in peace.

Capt. James specializes in light tackle and spinning, and you’ll be using Drave, Gambler Soft, and Zoom tackle. You’ll get your chance to reel in the prized Largemouth Bass, as well as a variety of other species. The target species include Bowfin, Crappie, Snakehead, Sunfish, as well as Peacock Bass.

Most fishing will be done in the shallow estuary waters, so you’ll be able to actually see all the action first-hand!

The captain will provide snacks, drinks, and sandwiches for your refreshment. All you need to bring is a fishing license which you can buy over the phone, rain gear, sunglasses, and some sun protection.

Bring your sense of adventure and join Capt. James on your newest fishing adventure in the productive waters of the Everglades!

"Ten years ago, I moved to SoFLo from NJ and never looked back. I have been freshwater fishing all my life, but became obsessed since moving here. From Snakehead and Bowfin to Largemouth and Peacock, SoFLo has it GOING ON!" Captain James has been fishing for 10 years in Florida, and freshwater fishing is his specialty. This is his side job, as he works as a therapist (helping people improve their mental health). Captain loves being out on the water because it’s very relaxing, and nature is beautiful and peaceful. James enjoys teaching people about the history and ecology of the fishing area.
