The 10,000 Islands of the Florida Everglades can be confusing once you get between the mangroves. The myriad of waterways can cause the inexperienced boater to become disoriented – besides a seasoned fishing guide knows that waterways, the proper baits to use and what fish are biting where. Therefore, I suggest you book a half-day or full-day fishing guide to take you on your Florida fishing journey.
Our Florida Everglades fishing excursion was with the amicable and experienced Fishing Captain Phil DeVille. Phil’s genuine love the Everglades became apparent within the first few minutes of our journey. Phil has been fishing the Florida Everglades for decades. A native of Florida’s Gulf Coast, he operates out of Port of The Islands Marina located south of Marco Island on US Route 41. Port of the Island Marina is a county owned park. It is about 12.5 miles east of Collier Blvd.
The anticipation of your catch is one of the most exciting aspects of fishing the 10,000 Islands backwater.
Florida Wildlife Viewing
Watching a giant Tarpon swirl in the shallow water was one of many unforgettable moments in the Florida Everglades. The birding and wildlife of the Everglades is amazing.
