Trip Details and Expectations
Half Day $700 3/4 Day $900 Full Day $1100
Half-day (4 hours) $700 - Half-day trips are a great introduction to nearshore and light tackle inshore fishing. Depending on the time of year and conditions, a half-day trip can be open water gulf of Mexico fishing, tarpon fishing around the bridges and channels of Islamorada, nearshore patch reef fishing, or venturing into Florida Bay to fish mangrove islands. Many species of fish can be caught on a half-day trip including mangrove snappers, speckled sea trout, ladyfish, Spanish mackerel, barracuda, Jack Crevalle, juvenile Goliath grouper, Tarpon, sharks, and many more.
Three-quarter day (6 hours) $900 - The three-quarter day trip is an excellent choice for backcountry fishing in Florida Bay within the Everglades National Park. The three-quarter day gives us time to travel further into the park to target snook, redfish, speckled trout, tripletail, tarpon, mangrove snappers, and many other species.
Full day (8 hours) $1100 - A full-day trip allows more time to travel further into the remote areas of Everglades National Park and spend more time looking for trophy fish. This trip will usually entail a 15 to 30-mile ride back into the Everglades. A variety of live bait and artificial baits are used with light spinning gear while targeting many species including snook, tarpon, redfish, tripletail, and speckled trout.
