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.

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.

September

Join in with “Hook’em in the Glades,” a fishing fundraiser tournament to support the local Everglades City School in their academic and athletic opportunities. Largemouth Bass, Sunshine Bass, and Cobia are picking up again.

October

The Miami Attractions Month of buy-one, get-one-free, will reach the Everglades too. As well as many attractions further up north, you can visit the Everglades National Park. Stone Crab season opens on October 15.

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.

We had to earn our beer today, but worth every minute of it as Captain Bobby can navigate his way around the islands blindfolded if necessary! We hit 9,995 of the 10,000 today it seems, had a blast all day long, "I'll be back"...soon👊 J Hochman, Bonita Springs

6 hour charter with Captain Bobby who constantly kept the hooks baited and had me casting all day... Was always on the hunt for a better spot and was very good on giving pointers on what to look for when hunting fish. Unfortunately the snook and redfish we caught were just under the size limit but we brought some seatrout in for dinner. Definitely plan on using Captain Bobby on future trips to Everglades City.

Cpt. Bobby was very knowledgeable and fought hard to get us on some fish. He was very accommodating and checked in with us the day before the trip to make sure everything was good to go and if we had anything special that we needed.

We had a great time with Captain Bobby. He is personable, encouraging and a good teacher. He made everything very easy and convenient. He paid a lot of attention to my 19-year-old son. He knew a lot of different spots and if we weren't getting action he quickly moved us to one where we did. So we caught a lot of fish and had a very pleasant time. We enjoyed the first day so much we went again the next day. I highly recommend Captain Bobby.

Good trip, it was fun. Caught fish, but not the kind we would have liked. Only two fish were edible. Captain Travis did an excellent job cleaning what he described as a very boney fish and no one ate a bone! Good overall experience. Suggestions for future trips: inform passengers they must have a park pass and Captain Travis should always carry his documentation for Park Ranger stops.

My buddy and I had a great half-day trip with Capt. Bobby. He put us on fish and we enjoyed the experience. It wasn't the best of days but he worked hard to get us some fish. He was a competent captain and provided us with a wonderful day of fishing. Mike & Drew

Two retired couples spent a wonderful half day trip with Travis. Besides being well versed in the area and fishing, he shared interesting knowledge about the environment and wildlife. We caught 17 fish of all sorts. It was relaxing, exciting and totally worthwhile. It’s our hope to return next year and give Travis a call.

Great morning of fishing. We caught four sea trout, black drum, catfish, ladyfish, puffer, and lots of mangrove snappers. Capt Bobby was very knowledgeable and great company! Fun discussions of the region, Boat, and gear were great. Thank you, Capt. Bobby for a great experience! Our next trip to Florida will include another trip with Waterboy Charters!!!

Was great back country fishing experience with Captain Bobby. Caught a lot of fish and great to catch many different species of fish. Also great to see so much of the 10,000 islands in one day. Highly recommend booking a trip.

Capt. Bobby's communication from booking through the end of the trip was just excellent. Highly knowledgeable of the Glades and got us into all types of fish, and for how we wanted to fish (lures only - due to fly fishing and bass tournament backgrounds) put us on the fish. Caught a lot of fish, was consistently in them, and even went over-slot on the Snook. Highly recommend booking with him, as we had a very enjoyable trip. We'll be back out with him again!

Had a great day with Captain Bobby on 10/5/21. I've fished with at least a score of guides across the country, Canada and Central America. Bobby is by far the best guide I've ever spent a day with. Friendly, professional, personal, patient and also a good coach. We fished hard and ran all over. Excellent boat and equipment for the job, too. We picked up redfish, snook and trout and only a stray catfish or snapper. I be back and with family and friends! Thanks, Captain Bobby "Waterboy" Bouchett!

This was the first time booking a fishing trip on a vacation. Our family had different levels of experience. Captain Bobby was a great guide and host. It was an overall fun experience and something we will do again in the future.
