“Chokoloskee Island is smack-dab in the middle of a kayak fisherman’s nirvana — the western edge of Everglades National Park. Look on a map and you will see literally 10,000 islands surrounded by mangroves, mudflats, oyster bars, sandy beaches, and a rich marine nursery that is home to an amazingly diverse fishery — trout, redfish, snook, tarpon, and cobia abound.” MSNBC picked up this story about top places to kayak and fish from CanoeKayak.com. Everglades National Park, the Potomac River, Puget Sound, Washington and Georgian Bay, Ontario are featured.
