Keenefish Charters

Keenefish Charters invites you to experience the trip of a lifetime out in the Florida Panhandle waters. Captain Robert Keene specializes in nearshore and offshore fishing and is always happy to welcome anglers of all skill levels. He takes great care in catering to your individual needs, so just let him know what you’re looking for!

His boat is a 28’ Southport center console that runs on twin 225 HP Yamaha engines. These will take you to the hottest fishing grounds before you know it. With plenty of room for up to 6 guests, she’s a great fit for family trips and group adventures in general. The boat is outfitted with a GPS and fishfinder unit, outriggers, and a livewell for bait storage. In short, there’s everything you need for a productive day on the water!

Keenfish Charters runs trips in Mexico Beach, Apalachicola, and Port St. Joe, so you can let the captain know what works best for you. Some of your most common targets for the day will include Mahi Mahi, Redfish, Amberjack, Cobia, Wahoo, and more. When Red Snapper season hits, you’ll also be able to go after everyone’s favorite bottom feeder.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are all included in the price of any given trip. The price also covers fishing licenses and catch cleaning services. You should bring whatever drinks and snacks you’d like to have for the day, along with polarized glasses and sunscreen. Come on down and make some memories together with the Keenefish crew!
