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 for 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.

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 are amazing. Up to 189 species of birds may be seen in a single trip. Bottle-nose dolphins, Alligators, Crocodiles, and Manatee also live in these waters.

What to Bring

Captain Phil DeVille provided just about everything we need – bait, tackle, licenses, ice, net, and extra gear. Your catch will even be cleaned and put on ice for you. When booking our fishing trip it was suggested we bring along a camera, rain gear (which was not needed), sunblock, insect repellant, a hat, sunglasses, snacks, and beverages. Double-check this list before getting into the boat. Extra camera batteries are a good idea also. The scenery is spectacular.Everglades Florida Fishing Capt. Phil DeVille
