Florida Everglades Fishing Charters

Serving Everglades National Park & Chokoloskee, FL

About Finesse Charters & Captain Herb Kehoe

A native Floridian, Captain Herb Kehoe has over 35 years of fishing experiences in South Florida. "Growing up in Ft. Lauderdale, fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and redfish has given me an opportunity to log a lifetime of memories and gain vast knowledge of the waters I fish. After 14 years of guiding fishing parties in different locations throughout South Florida, the serenity and remoteness of the Florida Everglades led me back to Chokoloskee, FL, an area I fished for the first time in 1972. Now I spend over 200 days a year on the water, concentrating my efforts on backwater light tackle species. Each day on the water brings a new experience to record in my log book as I find my way into some of the most secluded areas of Everglades National Park: Lostsmans, Rodgers, Broad and Harney Rivers, Cabbage Bay, Jungle Bay, Tarpon Bay, Two I Bay, Graveyard Creek, Rocky Creek and Indian Camp Creek".

Fish aboard our 22 foot Pathfinder 2200XLTournament Edition Bay Boat for near shore/offshore species such as permit, pompano, cobia, seatrout, mackerel, kingfish, sharks, grouper, snapper and tripletail, or in the rivers and backbays of the 10,000 islands for snook, redfish, trout, mangrove snapper and tarpon. Our artificial reef structures provide a haven for migratory species year round, and are located close enough that we can fish both inshore and offshore on the same day. Whatever your preference, Finesse Charters offers you a wonderful day on the water.

Regardless of your level of skill, from the experienced angler or a novice, Finesse Charters is the fishing trip for you. For the novice angler, Captain Herb has taught at a number of fishing seminars around the state and will teach you the techniques necessary to catch fish. Finesse Charters also offers guided sightseeing trips in the park. Everglades National Park abounds with fish and wildlife, from Bald Eagles, White Pelicans, Osprey, Dolphin that will swim close to the boat and even an Everglades Kite, there is no limit to what we might find.
