The only truly wild natural area left in Florida, the Everglades is a vast marshland filled with the most exotic wildlife in the country. And what better way to explore this 1.5 million-acre wilderness than going on an Everglades fishing charter? You’ll be able to head out with a professional captain and cover a variety of habitats and fishing styles.

With fresh, salt, and brackish waters all around, you’ll have no issues reeling in whatever you target. Heading into saltwater will see you going after Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Cobia, and Jack Crevalle. The freshwaters further inland are home to big Largemouth and Peacock Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, and more.

Depending on what you want to do, there’s a variety of trips you can choose from. Opt for a half day trip to take your family into inshore waters, or to visit some of the lakes in the area. A full day trip will give you more time to fill the boat and take home some delicious table fare. You’ll be able to cover more ground and maximize your chances of reeling in trophy fish.

There are fishing charters you can hire in different parts of the Everglades. Head on down to the Ten Thousand Islands for inshore charters. The Everglades National Park is a very good spot to visit as well. Hop on a charter in Everglades City and test the prolific waters of the Chokoloskee Bay.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing aboard an Everglades fishing charter in saltwater, the fishing license will be covered for you. However, if you want to target freshwater species, make sure to get a freshwater fishing license ahead of time. Book a trip with a reputable guide and they’ll be able to make sure you’re always fishing on the right side of the law.

January

The start of the year is perfect for fishing deep in the backcountry of the Everglades. Look for Snook, Redfish, and even the occasional Tarpon in Whitewater Bay and the channels.

February

Winter fishing continues, with plenty of sheltered waters and game fish to be had along the inner waterways of the Everglades. Tarpon may grow bolder and leave the channels after a few days of warm weather.

March

As the weather heats up, you’ll see more Tarpon emerging. This is a great time to fish the Florida Bay. If the season allows, you might have a chance to fish a few wrecks on the coastline outside the Everglades.

April

Once spring is in full swing, you can expect to find a much wider variety of fish in these waters. Head to the canals for Bass fishing or fish the bays for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Snook.

May

May marks the height of Tarpon season in the Everglades. When you’re not chasing the Silver King you’ll find great Redfish, Snook, Jack Crevalle, and much more in the bays.

June

Tarpon season continues here in the Everglades. You’ll see anglers tossing topwater plugs left and right for Snook, Speckled Trout, and much more. 

July

Anglers like to head out early and beat the heat in July. This is a great time to fish the bays or to venture into the Gulf for some Permit, Grouper, and other delicious catches near the wrecks. 

August

The summer heat wave continues, with average temperatures ranging up to 92°F. Head offshore to cool down or see if you can’t entice a few Tarpon that are still hanging around the Everglades.

September

Fishing for Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon can be spectacular in autumn. On cool days, the temperature in Florida Bay will be perfect – for the game fish and the people out to catch them!

October

You can enjoy more great fishing in October, with ideal temperatures between 73–86°F. You’ll have your choice of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Cobia, and more in the Everglades.

November

Weather can start to limit your options as winter approaches. Anglers will return to the inner waterways of the Everglades, fishing for Redfish and Snook. You’ll still find Cobia cruising around here, too.

December

As average temperatures fluctuate between 62–79°F, most anglers are seeking sheltered waters in the backcountry, along with Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout. The canals will be bustling with Largemouth Bass.

Patience - the fish are out there and they are biting. Full moon allows the predators to hunt all night so expect slower days when the moon is full, or near full.

Look for a Captain targeting the type of fish you want to catch. Also understand the trip your booking meaning don’t hire a flats boat if you want to go off shore.

Weather is excellent. Crowds are low so easy to get around. Food everywhere is excellent. And the fishing is off the charts. One of the best places in the WORLD. Islamorada offers so many places to stay from High End Luxury hotels, to mom and pop motels to camping and RV parks. You cannot go wrong.

If fishing in July like we did, plan a morning half day trip. A full day trip will be extremely hot and fishing becomes more difficult as the day heats up. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

The Mahi Mania was perfect for four people to fish comfortably. We all agreed the captain and mate were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and created a thoroughly enjoyable experience for us. We definitely recommend fishing with this operation and will look forward to fishing with them again when we return to Key Largo in the future.

We had a really good morning with Captain Josh. Everything was laid back and low key, yet very professional. He had a deep knowledge of the area and preferred staying away from the crowds. We caught fish everywhere we stopped. He will put you on fish and be entertaining at the same time.

Capt Rio did a great job. He helped out the newby fisher people on the boat. He also was able to coax two dolphins to jump the boat wake multiple times and we got some great photos. The fishing was average for January. We caught several trout and two keeper sheepshead Capt Rio did an expert job of cleaning the fish and they were delicious when we pan fried them later that day.

Highly recommend this man as a captain no matter what your trip. He made it such a memorable day for me and my family. And the fish tacos afterwards were so good my 8 yr old and 2 yr old ate two helpings. If they had 10+ stars it would have been that. Such a great time and a great captain. Would easily choose him again without a second thought.

Great day in the water even though the fishing was hard because of the season. Caught bone dish and hammerhead shark. Captain was very patient with two fly fishermen who were not experienced spin fishermen. Too windy for fly rods. The Trading Post lunch was outstanding. Really only need one for two fishermen.
