Funfish Charters – Everglades City

Get ready to explore the Everglades with Funfish Charters! Your guide for the day, Captain Mike Flowers, specializes in a wide range of techniques and tailors his trips to all skill levels. If you’re looking for a “reel” Florida fishing experience, you’ve come to the right place.

Your boat for the day is a 24’ SeaHunter center console, powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. This boat is fast, versatile, and provides comfort for up to 4 guests. She’s perfect for stocking the shallows and comes with a wireless trolling motor for stealthy fishing. She’s also equipped with state-of-the-art Garmin navigational electronics, fishing tackle, and safety gear.

Capt. Mike welcomes all ages on his trips but prefers taking kids ages 6 and up. Parental supervision is required and they will be provided with life jackets as well. He enjoys taking families out on the water and teaching kids how to fish. His greatest success is being able to pass his passion for the sport along to younger generations.

You’ll fish the Everglades in search of Snook, Cobia, Redfish, Permit, Goliath Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, and Barracuda. You’ll be able to try out several different methods, including trolling, bottom fishing, drifting, spinning, and popping. After the trip, Capt. Mike will offer to clean and fillet your catch, free of charge, so you can enjoy a delicious meal with your family.

Capt. Mike provides top-quality Penn and Shimano rods and reels, as well as artificial lures and live bait. His license covers everyone on board, so no need to purchase a fishing license on your own. Just arrive at the pick-up location, bring sun protection, as well as snacks and drinks, and you’re all set.

Get ready for an unforgettable adventure in the Florida Everglades and book your trip today. Capt. Mike’s got everything you need for a successful day of fishing, all that’s missing is you!
