South Florida Fishing Guide - Everglades Charters

 There is vast variety of plant and wildlife. Blue herons, egrets and osprey line the waterways and fly about while you fish. There are breath taking water flowers, such as water and cow lilies & purple iris. The trees are draped with live Spanish moss. Bromeliads nestled in the branches of the lush greenery. Limestone & saw grass borders along the waterways are home to alligators, turtles & otters to say the least. Each and every outing brings a new experience. This is the home to some of the best largemouth bass fishing there is. It is not unusual to catch large numbers in a single outing. Come experience what we’ve come to love. Come join us in the Florida Everglades on a custom tournament rigged Ranger bass boat.

Soldiers Retreat - Testimonial

I was invited to go fishing today 02 Jan 2012 by Nuna C. Now I have not been fishing since my son Trace was a very little boy (he's almost 19 now if that says anything), but I said sure I need to relax what the heck let's do this!
I have to say Thank you to my good friend Nuna for the invite. Wow what a great, fun, peaceful, relaxing time we had. Neal Stark with Fishing with America's Finest and American Everglades Guide, Inc offered his time, equipment, support, knowledge, and to top it off he brought lunch to, we just had to show up!
We caught so many fish, laughed got a little serious at times you know some "friendly" competition among us Vets. I cannot say thank you enough to Neal, I went on his solider retreat to relax and what I really got in return was a uplifting moment in my life.
Thanks Neal! You are a blessing to all Navy, Marines, Air force, Army and Coast Guard that have a chance to go on one of your retreats.
If you are in the South Florida Area and you are looking for a day to go Bass fishing all you need to do is call Neal or go to his FB page Neal Stark and inquire about going on a day trip.

Thanks again Neal for all your support to the US Military, you are a true Patriotic American!

I’m glad to hear that your offer to take vets out for a day of fishing in the everglades as a way of giving back has become so successful. It’s an honor to hear that we played a small part of it by being the genesis for this great program. Others would be content to donate a few dollars to a good cause and call it a day. You’re willingness to want to really get involved and commit your time and resources to this is truly amazing. Words alone cannot express my gratitude for your helping my son Matt and I get back together after he returned from his second deployment in 2009. Spending the day fishing in the everglades was very relaxing and therapeutic in helping him adjust to being home. But the real difference was you – you opened up your heart and your home to us and reminded us what it was like to be a family. Just being with you and Jake helped us connect again as father and son and showed us how important that spending quality time together is. Your sincerity in wanting to help by doing this was evident from the very beginning and made me comfortable in taking you up on your offer to help. I know that it meant a lot to you to be able to help a fellow military family and we greatly appreciated it. Thanks again for showing us that America is still a great country with a great spirit, thanks to people like you and Jake.

Your Friends Eternally, Doug and Matt H.

Dear Neal,

Thank you so much for taking Calvin (my son) and I fishing in the Everglades. As soon as we left the city and got into your boat, a nice wave of relaxation set in. It felt great to get out of the concrete jungle of the city and get into to the fresh and open air.

I was amazed by all of the natural scenery and wildlife that we were able to see that day - plenty of alligators along with several different types of magnificent birds and fish. Before the trip, I had never caught a fish larger than a few inches and I have to say that reeling in my first bass was a pretty awesome feeling. Those fish really do have quite a bit of power! You and your son were very helpful guides for us newbie's.

I didn't realize how much skill was involved in fishing but you two were great teachers and made it easy for us to reel in a few monsters. I feel as though the Everglades is a very special place and I truly feel blessed that my son and I were able to spend some quality time together with you all.

Sincerely, Thomas Adams

Thank you for a wonderful day trip in the Everglades which was the highlight of a great holiday in Miami. It was a 5 star trip. I was moved by the raw beauty, the abundance of wildlife and your obvious passion for the Everglades. It was fascinating seeing the alligators close up (although I would not want to see our friend Humpback any closer...)

It was incredibly peaceful and an experience I will carry with me. Thank you for looking after me, a city girl, so well. I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable guide or a more thoughtful host. I have already recommended you to friends. The American Everglades Guide is the “must do” experience for anyone going to Miami or Florida.
