Captain Jim Hale owns and operates Florida Sport Fishing Charters, and has been taking people shallow water and flats fishing for more than 20 years in the productive waterways of the Everglades national park, Florida Keys and the Biscayne Bay. Jim is an avid fly water specialist, commonly targeting some of South Florida’s most popular game, including Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Largemouth and Peacock Bass, as well as teaching fishing techniques and strategies to anglers of all levels and ages, including children.

Jim, a Florida native, has been fishing the area since the age of 5, taught how by his father and grandfather. Today, he operates Marquesa, an 18’ Hell’s Bay powered by a single 115HP Mercury Optimax engine, with enough room to accommodate parties of up to 3 passengers. The boat features a 36 gallon live bait tank and a large underseat cooler, with lots of dry storage space. As for navigation, it comes equipped with a standard set of fish finding and marine technology, including a Garmin GPS, radio and Fishfinder. Both spinning gear and fly fishing equipment is made available by Captain Hale, along with live and artificial bait for the day. Shark fishing gear can be made available per request.

Some of the species you’ll be fishing for include Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Permit, as well as several species of sharks. Captain Jim has had a prolific international fishing career, having fished the Galapagos Islands for 5 years, and has done everything from fly fishing for Billfish in South America to sight casting for Bonefish on the fly in the Bahamas. Having been actively fishing for over 38 years now, he tries his hardest to make sure your day on the waters of South Florida is memorable and special.

Drinks are included in the trip price, as well as a complimentary cleaning of your fish after the trip. Florida fishing licenses are required for all of Marquesa’s guests, and are provided by Captain Jim at no additional cost.
