4 hours can be the perfect trip for beginners to get your feet wet, or if constrained by time! Also an effective way to fish during the dog days of summer when the water temps climb into the 90s.
6 hours of chasing fish down endless mangrove shorelines, creating memories that you will likely not forget!
Spend 8 hours on the bow of Capt. Evan's 2020 Chittum Mangrove 18ft skiff exploring the backcountry waters of southwest Florida. Evan offers trips in some of the most beautiful areas where you can find yourself zig zagging though the mangrove Islands of the Everglades or 10,000 Islands Wildlife Refuge.
Evan will provide all the necessary rods, reels, and tackle, but you are encouraged to bring your own equipment. Fishing license are included. Evan prefers catch-and-release fishing to preserve the precious fishery.
Target Species include: Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Sea trout, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Triple tail and Snapper.
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.
Naples, Florida • 6-9 years of experience
I was born and raised in Naples, FL and naturally started fishing the lakes in the neighborhoods all over Naples. At the Age of 9, I fished my first saltwater tournament and instantly became amused of the saltwater species. My first year in the tournament I won largest redfish(dumb luck) and the addiction began. From then on all I wanted to do is fish, especially in the salt. At the age of 14 I somehow pieced together, through family friends, an old aluminum V hull and 9.9 tiller and was dropped off at the ramp as much as possible. Over the summers I spent more time on the water than on land. Eventually upgraded boats little by little and continued learning the great fishery I was blessed to grow up on. Over the years I have fished some great waters but I truly think nothing compares to the Everglades and 10,000 Islands. It challenges you in ways most fisheries won’t but yields some of the most rewarding and spectacular views. Between snook and redfish crawling with their backs out along the mangrove shorelines and Tarpon laid up with their tails sticking out, Snook popping bait on the surface as the sun is rising and rolling tarpon all around the boat there’s always something amazing to see. Not to mention the impeccable bird and sea life these waters hold. I love teaching people about the waters I fish and how to effectively learn in each situation. I fish through my clients and I think that helps bridge the gap between communication and hooking up to the fish. Especially for someone maybe hasn’t fished my area before.
The only way to experience the Glades is through your eyes, and I look forward to showing you my beautiful home waters!
