The fishing

Fishing from canoes or kayaks, you will be navigating the waters around Miami, including the fish rich flats of Biscayne Bay. But you’d better bring you’re a game. According to Cordell himself: “If you want easy fishing this is not it. I will have to hunt to find fish and put you in position best as I can but its YOU who must deliver. Good cast and presentation usually means catching fish. Bad casting usually means NO FISH. I can guide one or two people for half days, full days or Boot Camp days. I can’t be broken and will always outlast even the toughest.”

As he says, it can be tough, but it’s hugely rewarding. Fish you might encounter include permit, bonefish, redfish, snook and tarpon.

Cordell also fishes freshwater and the everglades for bass, peacock bass, exotic species, jacks, snook and tarpon.
