An adventure into the Everglades
National Park is beautiful as well as exciting.
"backcountry" as it's called, is made up of hundreds of small islands,
shallow flats and bays. Fishing can be fantastic on the flats and grass
beds for a variety of fish such as Spotted Sea Trout, Redfish, Jack
Crevalle, Snapper, Ladyfish and Sharks. In the deep cuts up against the
islands, the Snook and Snapper cruise through the mangrove roots
awaiting the perfect presentation of your bucktail jig to hit the water.
Fishing in the backcountry
is for the amateur as well as the experienced angler. For the avid
anglers, you can cast bucktails, jigs, plugs and lures. The novice can
simply fish with live shrimp and a popping cork.
Aside from the fantastic
fishing, the backcountry provides a variety of wildlife from birds to
alligators. Everglades National Park is home to a large variety of
birds including the majestic Bald Eagle, the Osprey, Egrets and
Spoonbills. The winter months provide habitat for the largest
concentration of White Pelicans in North America.
