Immerse yourself in the wilderness of the Everglades National Park with “Legacy Charters”! Captain Paul Manoogian has been fishing the area since 1997 and has a permit that allows him to guide in the national park waters! Whether you’re a novice or pro you’ll revel in the incredible rod-bending action and beautiful sites.
Your vessel for the day is a 17’ Seastrike skiff, perfect for two anglers but capable of accommodating a third for an extra charge. She was made to navigate the shallow backcountry and mangroves. Capt. Paul has a live well on board and has life jackets for everyone. To explore non-motorized areas, he also brings along his canoe.
Inshore fishing in the Everglades ticks all the boxes. You’ll explore rivers, mangroves, and extremely shallow waters for a variety of fun-to-catch fish. Go after the likes of Snook, Redfish, and legendary Tarpon! There’s spinning tackle on board and fly fishing gear is available upon request.
Capt. Paul is a big believer in catch and release fishing. Whether fly fishing or spin fishing he encourages catch and release, especially for Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon. However, certain other species such as Tripletail, Seatrout, Sheepshead and Mangrove Snapper can be kept.
He 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, just leave the hard liquor at home. 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 two nights camping in the Everglades and fishing in multiple remote spots during the day! He’ll bring along tents and sleeping bags and send you a list of what to bring to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.
Whether you’re spending a day in the Everglades or opting for a multi-night trip, Legacy Charters makes your fishing adventure a memorable one!
