Immerse yourself in the wilderness of Everglades National Park with Legacy Charters! Captain Paul Manoogian has been fishing the area since 1997 and has been professionally guiding since 2018. He has all the licenses necessary to operate in the national park. Whether you’re a novice or pro, you’ll revel in the incredible rod-bending action of the Everglades.
Your vessel for the day is a 17’ Seastrike skiff, perfect for two anglers but capable of accommodating a third for an extra charge. During certain times of year and conditions, Captain Paul also brings along his canoe. In the event you would like to sight fish on fly, the captain has access to a Hell’s Bay skiff. Just make sure to clarify which one you would prefer to fish out of when booking.
Inshore fishing in the Everglades is a unique experience. You’ll explore rivers, islands, flats, mangroves, and beaches for a variety of fun-to-catch fish. Go after the likes of Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon! Rods and tackle are provided. If you’d like to bring your own rod, talk to Captain Paul about what would be best.
Capt. Paul is a catch and release guide. He does not keep redfish, snook, or tarpon, but will keep snapper, trout, triple tail. Make sure to talk with him about that before your trip.
The captain works hard to make sure you have a good time and if you enjoy the trip, a 20% tip is customary. All you need to do is bring along enough drinks and snacks to keep you going. You’ll also want to pack sunscreen to stave off the Florida sun.
Capt. Paul also offers a multi-day trip where you’ll spend anywhere from 1 to 6 nights camping in the Everglades and fishing in multiple remote spots during the day! He brings all the gear and provisions necessary and cooks your food and will send you a list of what to bring to ensure you’re experience is one of a kind and top-notch.
Whether you’re spending a day in the Everglades or opting for a multi-night trip, Legacy Charters makes your fishing trip a memorable one
