Traditional Kayak Fishing Trips
The areas surrounding Chokoloskee Island and Everglades City are some wonderful locations for kayak fishing.
With a fleet of specially outfitted Heritage and Native Watercraft kayaks loaded on three separate trailers, we can fish both the fresh and saltwater in Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, the 10,000 Islands Preserve and Fakahatchee State Preserve.
Launching from shore, you can fish for snook, juvenile tarpon, redfish, speckled trout, and jack crevalle in the salt water mangrove estuaries of the 10,000 Islands, or target large mouth bass, snook, tarpon, peacock bass, Oscars, exotic cichlids in the fresh water environments. The waters are sheltered, calm and rarely fished. Perfect for fly fishing and the kayaks. With so many options, rarely are we "weathered out" by Mother Nature.
Where we choose to fish depends on the local conditions the day of the trip, what you wish to target and even where you would like to fish this trip. Different seasons favor different species, but most species can be targeted all year-round.
The trip typically lasts 5 hours and costs only $300 for the first angler and $150 for each additional angler. This fee includes a completely outfitted fishing kayak and your guide's services and expertise. Anglers are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear. However, we do have tackle and gear to rent. As you are fishing in your own boat, you will need a Florida fishing license. (~ $18 for an out-of-state; three-day license ... available online or by calling 1-888-Fish-Florida) You are also welcomed to bring your own kayak on these trips.
