Finest Kind

Casa Loma Boulevard
Boynton Beach FL, United States

Finest Kind charters is run by Captain Norm Bekoff, who has been fishing the Florida waters for over 35 years and is keen on putting all his guest on lots of fish. He loves nothing more than to see smiling and satisfied faces of his guests as they reel in the fish of their dreams.

The location of Boynton Beach means that you will have easy access to highly sought-after species such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Tuna, and that you are in for a good fight with some of the mightiest fish around the Atlantic Ocean.

You will fish aboard his 29 foot Ricky Scarborough center console boat, which was originally built in 1977 and restored in 2009. This beauty is powered by a 210 HP Cummins engine with a maximum speed of 26 knots. Her “Carolina flare” allows for a very comfortable ride.

The boat has a GPS system, a fishfinder to locate the best fishing spots, and a VHF radio for connection to the USCG. It also has all the safety equipment including a CPR trained crew, flares, and life jackets. You will have an ice box available onboard to preserve the freshness of your catch, as well as a live bait tank and outriggers.

Finest Kind charters will take you fishing from 2 to 20 miles offshore depending on the species you wish to target and the seasonality. Captain Norm will teach you anything you need to know about the techniques and the equipment, and is able to provide lighter versions of it if you are bringing children along.

You will have rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial bait, and a Florida Fishing Licence. The targeted species are Great Barracuda, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, King and Spanish Mackerel, Skipjack Tuna, Black Grouper and Mutton Snapper, among the many available in these waters.

Captain Norm is happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip, and will bag it for you so you can take it home for a nice meal.

    Full day trips allow us to go where we need to find fish, which is about 20 miles offshore. We can maximize our time offshore looking for Mahi Mahi, target several wrecks for Amberjack, Snapper and Grouper. Or we can spend the entire time looking for Sailfish. Of course, on a full day trip, we usually do it all.

    This trip allows us to head further offshore, about 10-15 miles. On this trip we'll typically start deeper looking for Mahi Mahi and Tuna. And then we come in closer to the reef and look for Sailfish.

    We target the deep side of the reef for Sailfish, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper and more. This is a popular trip because you get a lot of fishing time in a half day because our dock is so close to the inlet.

About the Captain

Norm Bekoff
Boynton Beach, Florida, United States
Member since October 2016
I grew up on sportfish boats and have fished everywhere from Massachusetts to St. Thomas, USVI and the Gulf of Mexico. However offshore South Florida is home. I got my captain's license at 19 and have been on boats ever since. So when you book Finest Kind you're getting home-grown fishing experience, not someone who left the rat race up north, bought a boat and thinks he can make a go of it.

I caught and released my first sailfish with Captain Norm! I had the best time and was confident in his capabilities and experience as a fishing boat captain. I couldn’t have asked for a better time out on the water that day. I also caught and released a shark which was a fun fighting fish. I would highly recommend Capt. Norm and to anyone looking to have a great day out on the boat.
