Professional Hooker Fishing Trips

Based out of Miami, Professional Hooker Fishing Trips is in a key spot to get you on the exquisite waterways of the Everglades. With canals, rivers, and lakes, you’ll get to experience some of the best freshwater fishing in the state. Captain Yoan Alvarez has over 20 years of experience in running fishing trips and has even earned sponsors for his work. He strives to turn all those big fish dreams into reality for every client.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 20’ tournament-ready Nitro bass boat that can comfortably take up to 3 guests. Fitted with top of the range gear including a trolling motor for silent advances, a 250 HP Mercury engine for bursts of speed between the fishing spots, and a huge amount of space for casting, this is the boat you need if you want to target large Bass effectively in the freshwater systems of Florida.

The area offers ample water to fish, so take advantage of it, fishing the local canals for Peacock Bass, and the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee for Largemouth Bass. Other species you could catch on your trips include freshwater Snook, Oscars, and Mayan Cichlids. Capt. Yoan will supply you with top of the range gear needed to catch the fish of a lifetime, so just come along with some snacks, drinks, and a sense of adventure and you can’t go wrong!

In the Everglades, you’ll be drifting through a national park, so nature truly is calling you to witness its beauty. Everyone will enjoy as you relax or take the fishing game seriously, reeling in one after the other. Children of all ages are also welcome, so it could be a great day out with the family. What are you waiting for? Step aboard Professional Hooker Fishing Trips.

Captain Yoan Alvarez was born in Cuba in 1976 and has over 30 years of fishing experience. Having first learned to fish with his grandparents, who took him to the local ponds in Cuba to fish for Tilapia with a stick and some string, he has always been on the search for new fishing adventures. This passion brought him to Florida in 2002, and he hasn’t looked back since. With well over a decade of experience studying, fishing, and succeeding in these waters, he is now a well-known and respected captain both locally and nationwide, and his several large sponsors are proof of his success and talent. What makes him unique as a charter captain is his strong attention to detail and his desire and ability to meet the needs of his clients.
