Everglades National Park, 40001 Main Park Rd, Key Largo, Florida 33037
Legacy Charters Fishing • 3-5 years of experience
Beginning at sunrise and ending around 4:00 p.m, full days allow you to run far, fish less-pressured waters, and get in tune with what the fish are doing that day. Just remember to speak with Capt. Paul about what your ideal day would look like – are there any specific species you'd like to target, quantity over quality, are you interested in sight fishing, are you able to fish from a canoe? All these are helpful in putting together a one-of-a-kind, enjoyable and successful trip.
Inshore fishing in the Everglades is an exciting experience. Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish are all found in the park. These fish are the day in day out quarry. Rods, licenses, and tackle are provided. All you have to do is make it to the remote town of Flamingo (45 min drive from Homestead, 90 mins from Key Largo). Captain Paul meets his clients at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center before embarking on the long road to Flamingo.
Captain Paul is a catch-and-release guide. He believes in conservation and responsible stewardship of the park's resources. Under certain circumstances, he will keep certain species. Make sure to talk with him about that before your trip.
The captain works hard to make sure you have a good time and if you enjoy the trip, a 20% tip is customary. All you'll need for your trip is enough drinks and snacks to keep you going, polarized glasses, and sunscreen to stave off the Florida sun.

My name is Paul Manoogian I was born in 1993 in Miami Florida the year after Hurricane Andrew. My Grandfather started fishing Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, and Marco Island for Snook back in the 50's and there are logs in his journals of me catching fish on the boat in 1997. So I've been fishing since I was 4 years old. In 2006 my dad passed away and left me with a deep passion for the outdoors. In 2014 my grandpa passed away and that's when I decided to buy his skiff instead of letting it get sold. After buying the boat I started fishing Flamingo and Biscayne Bay often. After a few trips a mentor from my church who's father was involved in the miami met tournaments and who grew up fishing in the keys mentioned that I was very good and that I should pursue getting my Captains License. I worked hard for 4 years averaging 150 days a year on the water with no clients just to get my hours and learn the fishery. In 2018 I got my Captains license and started Legacy charters fishing. I used the word legacy because I wanted to share the legacy of fishing passed down to me from my dad and grandpa. I've been guiding professionally since 2018 and hope to win some big tournaments some day but my real passion is conservation and spending time in nature. Trolling for snook was my grandpas specialty so I have a lot of background with that style of fishing. I also picked up fly fishing and currently am focused on fishing the No Motor Zones in Everglades National Park out of my canoe. These are some of the things I do that might be different than some other guides in the area.
