Capt. Brandon Laszlo fishes out of the northwest region of the Everglades. Chokoloskee and the southern end of Florida’s 10,000 islands.
The youngest guide in our lineup, Capt. Brandon has a bright future ahead of him. His patience, knowledge and experience already reflect those of a much more matured guide. Chokoloskee is a never ending puzzle consisting of oyster bars, mangrove swamps, rivers and bays. It’s about putting the pieces together to have a good idea of when and why fish will be cruising a shoreline or flat as well as where a fish will be waiting to ambush prey sight unseen. This is what Capt. Brandon is most passionate about and dedicated to.
Capt Brandon has a proclivity for the big backcountry snook that call the Chokoloskee area home and fishing for them with him is an absolute blast. In addition to snook your backcountry adventure can include contending with big tarpon as well as stalking cruising and tailing redfish.
