About Captain John Hand
Come join Capt John Hand and enjoy the pristine backcountry of the Florida Everglades.
You will experience an unbelievable fishery from the small freshwater creeks of the inner Glades, to the outer islands on the Gulf of Mexico. As a 4th generation Florida native, Capt John has explored these waters for more than 4 decades.
Capt John began as a youngster poling his father on wooden skiffs to fish the Florida waters to provide food for the family. The Capt now poles his light weight Hell's Bay Guide skiff, to provide his clients with an experience only a Florida native would have the knowledge to provide.
Capt. John began fly fishing as a youth when his Grandfather taught him the art of catching bluegill and bass on Lake Okeechobee.
Capt John is a Federation of Fly Fishers Master Certified Casting Instructor with the ability to not only put his clients on fish, but also to assist them in learning the proper techniques used to bring different target species boatside. The targeted species can range from Bluegill and Bass in the creeks, to laid up Tarpon in the estuaries. The Capt also targets Snook , Redfish, Cobia, Pompano, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackeral, and Shark on spinning rod or fly.
So come and spend a day with the Capt and go home with some unforgettable memories of Florida's "Last Frontier".
