Everglades Fishing Adventures
One of our top picks in Everglades. Captain Dan Dixon has been fishing the Everglades National Park and the 10,000 islands exclusively for over 30 years, since he was a teenager. His devotion to fishing the area and learning new things about it has given him an in depth knowledge of where the fish are, no matter what the season or the time of year. No two days of fishing the Everglades are the same, and Capt. Dan loves sharing his passion for the area with guests on his charter fishing boat. Despite the fact that he fishes the area every day, he is still amazed by the beauty of the place and the variety of fish that are available there.
Capt. Dan fishes aboard a 22 ft Tournament Edition Pathfinder 2200. At just over eight feet wide, the boat offers plenty of space for you and your fishing party, accommodating up to four anglers with ease. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engine that allows it to reach different fishing areas with ease, and the Lowrance navigational electronics aid the knowledgeable guide in finding the fish. The boat has a large livewell for your live bait, and it is also equipped with plenty of storage space for your belongings.
Whatever your target species, Capt. Dan is confident he will be able to put you on the fish you’re after, depending on the season and weather conditions. He fishes for Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Sharks, and all the other species that inhabit the bountiful waters of the Everglades. He mainly fishes the shallow coves, rivers, bays and grass flats along the coast of the National Park, using Star Rods and Penn Reels with a variety of live bait and artificials.
More than anything else, Capt. Dan enjoys helping people learn how to fish in the Everglades. Seeing people catch the fish of a lifetime is the highlight of being a charter guide, and Capt. Dan is happy that he gets to see this happen often.

Captain Dan went well above our expectations in ensuring we had a great experience. Captain Dan took us to a dozen sites depending on the fish we were after and the tide we were presented with. Redfish, trout, permit, and mackerel was on the list of fish we were after. We caught a large selection of trout with a dozen over 16 inches, a dozen mackerel, a snook (out of season so we had to throw him back) black tip shark and probably 70 other fish that were fun to catch but not worth keeping. We have chartered many fishing trips and Captain Dan is the hardest working Captain we have met with the intention to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and caught a lot of fish. He was fun and professional. We are planning another trip with Captain Dan and I can’t wait.
