Immerse yourself in the wildness of the Everglades National Park with “Legacy Charters”! Captain Paul Manoogian has been fishing the park since 1997 and has a special parks permit, allowing him to access remote areas where few anglers can go! 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 3 anglers who all want to fish at the same time. She was made to navigate the shallow backcountry and mangroves. Capt. Paul brings along a live well and has life jackets for all ages too. 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 Black Drum, Snook, Redfish, and legendary Tarpon! There’s both spinning tackle and fly gear on board to accommodate all types of fishing.
Capt. Paul is a big believer in catch and release fishing and releasing fish caught on a fly is mandatory. If you catch any keeper fish with spinning tackle, he’ll be happy to clean and fillet it for you.
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!
