Keep your hands on a can of bug spray…this could not be any farther from the truth!
This could be the number one questioned asked when tourist are booking fishing or sightseeing trips in the Florida Everglades.
Critters of the Everglades are everywhere. But you have to know, that there are very few encounters with bugs. Don’t get me wrong, “there are bugs in the Everglades,” it’s just not bug infested like people think it is.
The way to approach fishing in the Everglades is no different then fishing back home on your favorite body of water. In most cases, you will probably encounter less bugs in the Everglades.
I think it’s the whole, “Swamp Thing,” that gets people nervous. They pretend or imagine there going to be lost in a real swamp, then expecting the same on our guided trips. It could not be any farther from the truth.
The “Swamp critters” are one of the biggest deterrents for people not experiencing the Everglades. When your on a guided excursion, you won’t have any trouble spotting the big stuff such as alligators, snakes, turtles and the many different species of birds the Everglades has to offer. But toads, bugs and other smaller animals in most cases escape your mind among all of the natural distractions.
The blessing of actually seeing this place, is learning what the wilderness provides when you open your eyes to it!
The Everglades, is an original creation, not something a museum bought or rented and put on display. People work there entire life’s in order to get to experience this beauty just once. Our staff spends all year working in this beautiful place called the “Everglades,” which provides a mix of real life and fancy for everyone involved.
