Recommended Gear for Everglades, Florida
The third largest National Park in the lower 48, The Everglades is a pristine fishery with an endless maze of tall mangroves, chains of islands, and winding creeks teeming with wildlife. Only navigable by water using specialized shallow water skiffs, this is an enchanting remote wilderness, yet it’s only an hour and a half from Miami and its famous dining, music and nightlife. Fly fishing the Everglades is an experience anglers long for. Sprawling from Everglades City down to Florida Bay and the Keys, these protected waters and coastlines offer premium opportunities to target unpressured trophy fish such as tarpon, snook, redfish and bass among other species. Highlights of this unique wonder of nature are the 99-mile long Wilderness Waterway, The Ten Thousand Islands area and Chokoloskee Bay, areas undisturbed by daily human traffic. On the Outpost Mothership, you’ll enjoy these special places all by yourself, accompanied by your professional fishing guide, someone who can show you where to go, navigate the environment, and safely put you on the tarpon or snook you have dreamed about. Eleven guides and crew are passionate about fishing and protecting the National Park. The adventure begins in Everglades City, or Flamingo, the National Park Entrance where you can fish the ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ with the Mothership parked in the Shark River. A 45 minute skiff ride from the ramp will take you to the Mothership anchorages.
