Fishing the backcountry with Spin —- Plug —-Fly

Captain Joe has lived 56 plus years in Florida and has spent over 40 years fishing, hunting and camping in South Florida’s wonderful outdoors.  He enjoys sharing knowledge about fishing and exposing others to our beautiful backyard, introducing you and yours to these areas.

We are located in Collier County, Florida where you will experience the unique and diverse areas of Collier County, Everglades National Park, Goodland, Chokoloskee and The 10k Islands all backcountry areas with not only a unique ecosystem but colorful history as well. The goal of Southern Glades Charters is to provide you with an enjoyable day on the water with an experience only available in this area of Southwest Florida.  We run our backcountry trips fishing with light tackle using artificials or fly for redfish, trout, snook and tarpon along with occasional opportunities at black drum, snapper, sheepshead, bass and exotics at times.  Fishing in such a unique and sensitive ecosystem and with conservation in mind we practice catch and release so keeping fish will be decided by your Captain.
