Chokoloskee fishing guides offer anglers the excitement of exploring the northern parts of Everglades National Park. Anglers in Chokoloskee have immediate access to Chokoloskee Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands, two of the hottest fishing spots in the Everglades National Park!

Common catches in this maze of mangrove islands, flats, and rivers include Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, and Tarpon in early summer. The front end of Chokoloskee Bay expands this list with Sheepshead and Spanish Mackerel, which are both available in strong numbers. Continue toward the Gulf of Mexico and you’ll have access to Permit, Cobia, and small Snapper and Grouper lurking around the reefs.

A typical half day charter will take you to the area’s most popular grounds – Chokoloskee Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands. Extend your trip by a couple of hours and your guide will take you deeper into the jungle-like waters beyond the bay. Finally, if you’re looking to cover more fishing spots and go a little bit further to some nearby wrecks, you’ll likely want to set aside a full day.

Charter boats can be found all over this small island. At the northern tip of the Island, around the Fishing Hole boat ramp, you’ll find charters that will have you in the bay within minutes. If you’re looking to explore the waters beyond the bay, your best bet would be the marinas on the island’s southwestern shore.

Rules & Regulations

If you plan on hiring a Chokoloskee charter boat, they’re likely to provide a fishing license for you. Anglers fishing on their own will need to buy a Florida saltwater fishing license. Species you’re able to target, catch, keep, and release vary throughout the year. Get the information before booking your trip if you have a specific target in mind.

January

Anglers in Chokoloskee spend their winter fishing deep in the backcountry of the Everglades. Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum are a few of the species you can catch this time of year.

February

Average temperatures range from 55-76°F in February. Exploring the backcountry and is a great way to dodge strong winter winds while casting lines for Redfish, Black Drum, and more.

March

As spring approaches, you’ll start to see more Snook around Chokoloskee. Head to the “outside” for a chance to catch Speckled Trout around the mangrove islands or a variety of fish on the nearshore reefs.

April

Weather permitting, April can be a great time to test the waters offshore. Many Snapper and Grouper species are biting vigorously. Cobia and Barracuda are at their peak.

May

Average temperatures climb as high as 87°F in May. You’ll have a successful day on the water just about anywhere you fish, from the mysterious waterways of the backcountry to the open ocean offshore.

June

Snook and Tarpon fishing are at their peak in June! You can expect lots of action from most of the other fish swimming around Chokoloskee, from Redfish and Permit to Sharks. 

July

July is one of the hottest months of the year in Chokoloskee, with average temperatures hovering between 74-90°F. Be sure to stay hydrated so you have the strength for plenty of light tackle battles!

August

The summer heat is persistent, and so is good fishing! Some of the best opportunities at this time of year are found offshore, where you can catch Snapper, Grouper, Permit, and more.

September

High temperatures remain in September. You can still enjoy excellent fishing around the mangrove islands and offshore for Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snapper, and Grouper.

October

As autumn sets in, many fish retreat into the backcountry. Anglers fishing the “inside” will start to see more Redfish and Snook than in previous months.

November

Temperatures are cooling down in Chokoloskee, and you can expect very little rainfall this month. You can catch a wide variety of fish inshore, including Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Black Drum, and more.

December

December is an excellent time to fish for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper, and other species swimming around the mangrove islands and backcountry waterways.

I believe we fished out of Everglades Park about two miles out. I don't believe we fished out of Key Largo.

Key Largo is a phenomenon place to fish in late July. You have lobster mini-season, the inshore flats & mangroves, and deep sea. It is without a doubt my favorite place to saltwater fish.

We caught 60+ fish in 4 hours, including a 4+ lb Red Fish. Took my wife and 10 year old grandson in this trip and DJ was wonderful with him— it was the first fishing trip for both of them. DJ was incredible—very helpful and patient. We also saw a dolphin and a manatee. Wow!!

Captain DJ was super friendly and knowledgable and really made our trip special for our family. He tailored the trip to what we wanted and took the time to explain us how to fish for different types of fish and how to reel in. I highly recommend DJ. Definitely the best one in the area. No wonder on why he has so many 5 star’s reviews. Thanks Captain.
