Everglades City guide

It looks like we'll be returning to South Florida in May / June 2020. We'll be staying in Everglades City for a few days. Can anyone recommend a local guide who can put me and my six year old son onto some nice fish please? 

What species should we expect to catch at this time of year as we usually visit over winter and this will be a first for us in May / June. 

Also, does anyone know of any boat hire companies in E.C or Chokoloskee? I know they used to be a guy called Mark in E.C who we've used before but I've been told he shut down after Irma?

Thanks in advance.
