About Captain Mike Merritt's Native Guide Service
Fishing Charters in the Everglades National Park. Fishing out of the Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City. I fish the Everglades 10,000 Islands for Redfish, Seatrout, Snook, Tarpon, and Cobia. I have , 3/4 day and full day fishing charters available year round. $800 per day, $700 for 3/4 day charter. I am a native Floridian, and a 3rd generation fisherman of this area and know how to put you on fish. I know if you are a happy client you will recommend me to others so I work hard to make my clients happy.

A buddy and I fished with Captain Mike two days and caught an estimated 50 Snook and 30 Redfish. Mike is fun to fish with and knows the area better than anyone. He works hard for his clients!

I fished with Mike several times in the past and did so again a couple of weeks ago. Nothing has changed: He knows the area like the proverbial back of his hand...which is no slight feat given its size. He worked hard to put us on fish and we caught reds and snook (our targeted species) all day. In my opinion, the best guide in the area and, to boot, a darn nice guy.

Mike Merritt is the best captain in the Everglades. Mature and calm and knows where the snook and the redfish are. Always a great experience.

The quantity of fish to catch was amazing. Lots of snook on a hook! We also limited on redfish two days in a row. Absolutely awesome to catch!! Especially yummy to serve for dinner!

What a great time we had down at Everglades National Park with Captain Mike Merritt, exceptionally knowledgeable of the waters, where to find fish and how to fish them. We were catching fish from the first cast and caught anywhere from 100-130 different types of fish; trout, catfish, tarpon, goliath Grouper, Red & Snook! Mike is the best! Great Captain, great host! A lifetime experience!
