Fishing abounds in the Everglades. The unique combination of year-round warm water, brackish rivers and backcountry bays, mangroves, oyster bars, estuaries, forage, and moving water, makes Southwest Florida one of the leading fisheries in the World. The nearshore bays, shallow flats and mangrove shorelines provides endless possibilities to hook into a trophy Tarpon, Snook, or Redfish. Everglades fishing is very diverse, from the shallow back country grass flats, to the outside islands and canal systems. The Everglades National Park has a large selection of fish species. With 1.4 million acres in the Park alone, everglades fishing is very unique. In the same fishing charter, it is possible to catch bass in the freshwater, snook in the backcountry, tarpon in the rivers, redfish on the beaches as well as trout on the flats.
