We had a great time on the water with Capt Rodney - he was very willing to adapt the trip to the needs of the customer but also was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the fisheries. He is a 5th or 6th generation local and it shows! We will definitely book with him if we are ever back in the Everglades!

Visiting the Watson Place was a bucket list item for me, less so for my wife, kids and grandson, and Capt. Rodney kept us entertained with great fishing, wildlife viewing, exploring and stories from his multigenerational experience in Chokoloskee. Even our three-year-old had a great time catching fish, watching birds and seeing dolphins.

Love to fish with someone who loves what he does, loves to fish and loves to help others catch fish. Captain Rodney was all of this and more. We will be back!

We booked a 4 hour fishing charter with Capt. Rodney through the Everglades and the Gulf of Mexico. Capt. Rodney was an absolute pleasure to talk with and a great charter captain to point us to the fish. I'm an experienced fisherman from the Northeast US so this style of flats fishing was very new to me. We ended our trip catching almost 10 different species of fish, everything from Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, even a small Goliath Grouper to name a few. Capt. Rodney also cleaned and bagged all of our keepers for a great fish dinner. I would recommend Capt. Rodney's Everglades Backcountry Experience to anyone looking to have a great time fishing everything the Everglades has to offer. Will be booking again in the future for sure!

The best day fishing in a magnificent and undisturbed environment! We chose the half day option for 2 people, which was a good fit for our schedule. After a search we decided on Everglades Backcountry Experience with Capt Rodney based on his good reviews. Loved the boat with very comfortable seating, and with only the two of us going as an anniversary celebration it was a personal and more enjoyable experience. Capt Rodney is a superior guide, a master fisherman and is engaging with his tips and vast knowledge. He moves fast to adapt for the best fishing depending on changing conditions. We caught a lot of fish and had a memorable day. First class all the way and highly recommended. Thank you Capt Rodney!
