Everglades, Florida and the 10,000 islands provide one of the most unique fishing experiences in the country. We ranked this destination fairly low considering how amazing the fishing is in this area. The problem with this area is that you don’t have nearly as many options when it comes to businesses serving this area. Once you are out here fishing, it can be one of the more amazing fishing vacations you will ever take, however, there are several precautions you should take before venturing out in this area.
The islands offer some spectacular inshore fishing for snook, tarpon, redfish, trout and many other species of fish. Offshore, anglers target snapper, grouper, cobia, permit, amberjack, king mackerel, goliath grouper and others. This area is very remote, so we definitely recommend hiring a fishing charter for first time visitors. Take a look at our fishing tips page for more fishing information.
