Fishing in Everglades City

Located at the mouth of the Barron River on Chokoloskee Bay, you’ll find one of the few places where you can truly connect with nature while staying close to some of Florida’s big cities. With luscious mangrove forests and abundant flats, fishing in Everglades City is a unique adventure best experienced first hand. With access to prolific brackish waters, as well as rich saltwaters, this is a truly versatile fishery.

Known as the “Stone Crab Capital of the World,” Everglades is a must-visit if you want to get some delicious crabs cooked to perfection. There’s no shortage of fish species you can target either, as these waters are teeming with the likes of Tarpon, Pompano, Bass, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Ladyfish, Speckled Trout, Shark, and Tripletail.

Make the most of the amazing backwater fishing by booking a half day trip and exploring the Chokoloskee Bay. These are great trips for the whole family that can spice up your vacation. A full day trip will take the more experienced anglers further out to Gulf-facing waters with more flats and mangrove islands. If you have the time, visit the famous Ten Thousand Islands for some more action!

Surrounded by water on all sides, finding a fishing charter in Everglades City is as easy as it can be. With an area size of just 1.2 square miles, you’ll find a boat wherever you turn. You can also head down to the famous Chokoloskee Island and take your pick. No matter where you choose to depart from, the fishing action is epic!

Rules & Regulations

Booking a fishing charter will cover your license when it comes to saltwater fishing. However, if you’re interested in freshwater fishing, you’ll need to buy a Florida fishing license in advance. Note that some species fall under strict regulations, so choosing a reputable captain is the best way to make sure you’re fishing legally.

Everglades City Fishing Seasons

January

The waters are excellent for Amberjack, Sunshine Bass, Red, Black, and Gag Grouper, Kingfish, and Lane Snapper. Lows of  53°F and highs of 75°F will keep things fast-paced.

February

Come down to the Everglades City Seafood Festival for a three-day event of music, food, and fun. Largemouth Bass action heats up now, and the Amberjack and Grouper action continues.

March

Join the locals at the Calusa Days event, showcasing 1,000 years of history, for a family day out. Or,  how about the Big Cypress Shootout reenactment? This is the last month for Amberjack, Black and Gag Grouper.

April

Jack Crevalle is awesome now, and Cobia is great for the month. Goliath Grouper and Spotted Seatrout get active. This is the last month for Sunshine Bass and Flounder until September.

May

Temperatures can reach 86°F so dress appropriately. Peacock Bass, Permit, and Shark fishing are getting exciting now. Snook are everywhere as they fatten up for the spawning season.

June

Mutton Snapper is biting hot, with species such as Barracuda and Goliath Grouper continuing to be awesome. Careful of the mosquitoes and no-see-ums – you’ll need plenty of bug repellant.

July

Snook continues being hot to catch as Tarpon has its last month of greatness. Thunderstorms are more likely to affect you getting out on the water this month.

August

This is the last month for epic Peacock Bass, Shark, Bluegill, and Permit hook-ups. Snook and Redear Sunfish are still great. Temperatures are reaching 89°F with over two weeks of rain expected.

November

Black and Gag Grouper, Pompano, Ladyfish, and Lane Snapper all heat up again as the weather cools off. Head to the oyster bars for the best chance of catching Snook.

December

Amberjack and Black Crappie come back into focus, with King Mackerel and Largemouth Bass staying active still. Try to cast close to the mangroves, especially any fallen ones, for the best bite.

Book A good Captain that knows the waters. We went in August and it was very hot. However, we are from Florida so we knew what to expect. If you are not used to the heat and humidity then you should pick a cooler time of year. If you can endure the heat August is the slow season and you won't have to fight the crowds.

Brandon was absolutely stellar. Put us on fish immediately. Caught 13 different species throughout the morning and put us on large sheepshead that he filletted out for us. Highly recommend him. Funny, knowledgeable and a great guide!

My 88 year old Dad and I went fishing with Capt Bobby. He was amazing and patient with my father as well as engaging with both of us. The cat is friendly, knowledgeable, hardworking and will put u on some fish. We didn’t get all the big ones but left with dinner and probably released 60plus fish on a six hour trip. On top of that Capt Bobby has the type of personality that makes u want to fish again. I can’t more highly recommend Capt Bobby to anyone looking to fish 10,000 islands.

Captain Slade’s enthusiasm and local knowledge was key to us having a great experience on the water on a day where the weather was less than ideal. And his cooperation in handling our shifting schedules when settling up the charter was most appreciated.

Armando is a top notch guide. He’s extremely knowledgeable and had us catching fish all day. We felt extremely welcomed the minute we walked up to the dock. His boat is comfortable, equipment is great and he’s an excellent coach. I’m looking forward to booking more trips with A2 Charters.

Armando was not only a wonderful captain, but a wonderful tour guide while fishing in the Everglades. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with his vast knowledge of the different species/terrene in the area. He made the trip fun while ensuring we were catching fish. Snook, speckled trout, red fish, goliath grouper, and mangrove snapper are a few of the 12 different species we caught. Great experience and we look forward to fishing with Armando again.

Captain Bob (Waterboy Charters)was Great. My wife and I booked our 1st trip to the Everglades and we were impressed. We caught are limit of Sea Trout and the action was pretty much non stop with multiple species. We also experienced Dolphin encounters that came right by the boat. If your experienced or novice anglers he's got you covered. So if your planning a trip to the Everglades book a trip and prepare to have a good time.

Captain Bob is an awesome guide. We caught fish all day (Despite us hearing it had been a very tough day for others catching fish that day). He knew exactly where to go to put us on fish. Highly professional and highly accommodating. All the equipment was in good order, never needed anything. We will be booking with him regularly every year going forward. Thank Capt, see you soon! -Patrick

Capn Bobby is a heck of a guy. My family had a blast. Fishing was a little slow but the Dolphins show and scenery and Bobby’s personality made up for it. We caught fish, just not a lot keepers. We would go again!!
