About Everglades Fishing Guides

The opportunities are endless when fishing in South Florida. The canals for peacock bass, the weedy banks for Snakehead, deep holes for Clown Knife fish, and the shallow flats of the Everglades for trophy largemouth bass are just some of the opportunities. Fishing with a South Florida fishing guide will yield numerous peacock bass and largemouth. These species are plentiful like Oscars, so going on a half-day charter will get you great action for the whole family. If everyone is enjoying themselves, extend the trip by an hour or two!

The numerous area around South Florida boasts great convenience and opportunity for anglers. Aside from the great freshwater, there are great offshore species like Mahi Mahi, tuna, grouper, snapper, and amberjack, while fishing inshore for snook, tarpon, redfish, and other sport fish.

South Florida is the mecca of fishing, and you’ll have no trouble finding a fishing guide to take you out. Fishing charters are like a 7-11, there on every corner, so you can’t use that excuse. But the question is, who do you hire? How do you know?

Look for this in a Fishing Guide

Don’t use a booking service; the captain is paying them a commission. Use companies like Bass Online, where we all fish! We’re a group of South Florida fishing guides that have gotten together as a TEAM. Under the best conditions to provide you the customer, the most satisfactory service in the area that the South Florida fishing industry has ever seen.

The finest bass fishing guides in South Florida on “the EvergladesLake IdaLake Osborne, Markham Park, Sawgrass, and Miami area for hard fighting Peacock bass,” you have come to the right place, Florida’s most extensive and #1 rated Guide Service.

We specialize in working with new anglers and experienced bass anglers looking for prime waters and modern techniques. Bass anglers who are out for an authentic, fun learning experience. But what we enjoy the most is getting those first-timers “hooked” on fishing. We provide everything you need for that big day.

Best Practices of a South Florida Fishing Guides

When taking a group of people fishing, the objective is safety first, fun, educate, especially if kids are onboard. No just about fishing, conservation, and the outdoors because they are future fishing guides.

This goal is to catch fish and create an atmosphere of fun and intriguing time on the water. It should not be just about fishing, you should see lots of different fish and wildlife. The eco-system depends on us promoting conservation, which starts where necessary with catch and release.

When being a South Florida fishing guide, we take the novice, amateur at best, and hard-core anglers and adjust our style and techniques for them. We get anglers that want to target specific species, like the Clown Knife Fish, and that okay as well.

The Everglades is a hidden gem in South Florida; it is located between Naples and Fort Lauderdale and South of Lake Okeechobee. Then that water flows south into Everglades National Park, where it becomes salty, and you can do sight fishing on the flats for Snook, Red Fish, Tarpon, and Sea Trout.

When you’re ready to embark on your next fishing charter, be sure to contact one of our South Florida fishing guides for their expert advice.

Rules & Regulations

Florida fishing licenses are not included in freshwater charters, but saltwater they are. This is not a choice of the captain but a way for Florida to get additional money for its resources. Making sure you get the proper license is the guide’s job, but actually getting it can only be done by you. Specific regulations are in place, and reputable captains will make sure you’re fishing within the laws of South Florida.

Learning About the Area

As we mentioned before, South Florida is located from Naples to Fort Lauderdale and from Okeechobee South. So that puts Miami, Palm Beach, and Ft Lauderdale in the heart of Florida’s healthiest fishing locations. Because of this, there is plenty of fishing locations. Remember, if it’s posted no fishing, then cast a line!

Fishing is a family activity; there are plenty of fishing lakes, ponds, and canals in the area that can keep them happy and outdoors.
